Later, I told myself that I could make these little scented chicken balls myself!

Later, I did it and after making Chicken kofta Balls and fried in a frying pan and Enjoyed.

After a few weeks, I arranged a party for my Indian friends. So I thought of Chicken Kofta Curry making.

I embarked on a Kofta Curry Recipe that turned out to be bafflingly simple.

The end of the week continues with Indian notes and colors. It was so difficult for me to resist these flavors. And then, it goes well with Kofta Curry Recipe with potato (aloo in Hindi). 😉

It’s spicy, yes, of course, but if the spices are dosed well, it’s more fragrant than spicy. However, if it scares you anyway, just reduce the amounts of spices a little; it will not spoil the flavor of the dish.
