Koftas are usually deep fried. But here,I am shallow frying them. You can deep fry them, they are more tastier. But, keeping the health factor in mind, I have been shallow frying and it is equally good.

Mix all the ingredients together. Make it small balls and flatten between palms. Heat a skillet and shallow fry.


Add koftas just before serving. Tastes good with nan,roti, kulcha or chapati.
