Palak Bread Kofta Curry

I cant stop using stale bread in my cooking nowadays, before  i usually prepare home made bread crumbs by grilling them and grinding them as bread crumbs, i have a huge bottle of bread crumbs now and i dont want to make out more bread crumbs for few months, so i have found some alternative dishes where i can use those stale bread instead of throwing, one among those dish is this palak bread kofta curry...I prepared this bread kofta with stale bread slices along with potatoes also instead of deep frying, i prepared them in paniyaram pan, which needs few drops of oil and finally cooked everything in a spinach gravy spiced with ginger garlic paste, onion,spinach & tomato puree with spice powders, we enjoyed having this kofta curry with our rotis for dinner and we just loved it, this green kofta curry tastes fabulous, healthy as well as prefect for also aged people..
