Healthy Malai Kofta Recipe

Healthy pan fried malai koftas (paneer and potato balls) simmered in spicy makhani (cream) gravy. Creamy and delicious Malai Kofta are vegetarian dumplings prepared in a cashew gravy. This kofta is not fried but rather pan-fried. This is a healthy Malai Kofta, if you will, so there is no frying involved, instead, I sauteed the kofta balls in avocado oil.
