Cabbage Kofta Curry Recipe [Video]

Cabbage Kofta curry is another version of traditional koftas that we normally make with Bottle Gourd. The only difference here is that the koftas are made with cabbage.

But this does not mean that the taste and flavor of kofta curry takes a beating. Instead, it tastes better and more delicious that Ghiya (Bottle gourd) koftas.

Try this dish and the you will love the melting koftas in your mouth.
