Tofu & Methi Koftas

Our recent favourite is this tofu and methi koftas, i tried them yesterday for our snacks, coz a packet of tofu was sitting since three days, at the same time there were some fresh methi leaves, i was breaking my head to finish those sadly sitting tofu and leftover methi leaves to make something for our snacks..I finally finished them as this koftas, i have added few potatoes to make them more tasty and this koftas very extremely delicious when served along with ketchup, i was happy to finish the tofu and methi leaves as a crispy snacks and enjoyed a lot..These koftas suits prefectly as side dish for any sort rice dish as well as an appetiziers for a party menu..

I have never seen methi leaves being sold over here, and have been looking for it for ages! Even the local Indians have no idea where to get this, they did not use this leaves in their cooking! Any idea whether can I grow from the seeds (the ones used for cooking) and dry the leaves? I tried sowing the seeds once but am not successful. Would love to try this snack, looks really delicious. Have a nice day!

Priya, was looking around for some tofu recipes; do you have any silken tof recipes? I just used them in our Indo-Chinese concoction and thai green curry. Anything that would lend itself to our Indian flavours? Thanks!
