Chicken Kofta Curry and Mango Lassi

Few days back I tried this kofta curry with minced chicken instead of using mutton as we always do. It was our sunday lunch with some mango lassi. So, lets get started with the recipe now.

  2. Now in a bowl mix everything mentioned for making kofthas except oil.
  3. Make small balls and keep them aside on a plate.
  4. Deep fry/shallow fry them removing them on a tissue paper to drain excess oil.
  5. Now in deep pan, fry the paste we made in a tbsp of oil for the raw smell to away. Then, to it add these kofthas and cook covered on low-medium heat for 20-25 mins.
  6. Garnish with coriander and serve hot with rice or rotis.
