ABOUT Red Velvet Koftas in Green Curry RECIPE

Beetroot is an amazing root vegetable which is excellent for your health, hair and skin. You can consume both the leaves and the round roots.Today I made Beetroot Kofta with cheese, paneer, walnut and raisin stuffing, it was absolutely delicious! I am not a fan of beets, but this recipe surprised me. They had a slight sweetness to them and a moist cake texture that melted in my mouth. That's why I named my Koftas Red Velvet Kofta. For giving a little twist to it I combined these Kofta with Malai Matar Methi gravy. You can also serve these Koftas as starter. Try making this colorful eye soothing yummlisious Red Velvet koftas in Green Curry, I am sure you will like it
