Tofu & Veggies Kofta Pulao

Since i have prepared koftas with tofu and methi leaves, everyone at home asked me to prepare again, so today i prepared them in an another way using just tofu along with few veggies and turned everything as a delicious,quick at the same time a very easy pulao, this pulao tastes extremely delicious and i served them along with onion raita..This pulao suits prefectly for lunch box menu, as a main course dish for a party menu or else a sunday special dish for vegetarian lovers..I cant stop myself making dishes with tofu and i have no words to explain how these koftas are delicious, u can also skip the deep frying part and u can surely bake ur tofu koftas through oven, next time am gonna make some gravy with this beautiful and healthy koftas..Making koftas with tofu sounds extremely easy and prefect for me to feed my family to enjoy happily this healthy bean curd called 'Tofu'..
