Aloo Malai Kofta

{{totalReview}}
Recreate this delicious vegetarian North Indian dish in the comfort of your own home. Aloo Malai Kofta consists of potato balls (kofta) served with a smooth velvety curry also known as the malai sauce. Traditionally deep-fried, the kofta is pan-fried in this recipe as a healthier alternative. A side of tomato chutney compliments the meal as it perfectly balances out the bold flavors of the creamy curry.
