          Kofta curry always brings a big smile on daughter’s face. Usually I made paneer kofta, bottle gourd kofta for her. Then I realized that if they don’t like any veggies, put it in the form of kofta. I am sure they goanna b loved it. Instead of making traditional deep fried kofta, I decided to make koftas in paniyaram/appe pan. It much easier and much healthier.

In India, Kaju katli is very famous sweet and often presented to the guest on auspicious occasions or during Diwali Festival. I referred too many sites and found the correct measurement.

You have to be careful right from the first step to get perfect melt in mouth katli. Now I am confident to make this sweet again……Rolling on the floor laughing
