Anything with paneer are always our family favourites, especially my daughter loves paneer as any form..She can eat any dishes from breakfast to dinner with paneer as main ingredient, one of her favourite dish is this kofta curry,she loves this delicious kofta curry along with rotis even everyday..I prepared this paneer kofta curry as low fat version using low fat paneer which i prepared using milk powder and fried the paneer koftas in paniyaram pan instead of deepfrying...This kofta curry goes prefect as side dish with simple ghee rice or with any sort of rotis..This great looking paneer kofta curry tastes marvellous even when they are served along with some toasted breads..Sending this tempting low fat paneer kofta curry to CWS-Coriander seeds guest hosted by Aruna,event by me..

We love these low fat koftas at home. Most of the time I don't prepare the gravy as the koftas disappear by the time I start preparing the gravy :)
