Plantain (raw banana) kofta step-by-step recipe with photos.
Kofta is deep-fried meat/veggie balls in a silky smooth gravy. Typically, veg koftas are made with potatoes and paneer and soaked in a rich gravy. But the Bengali style kofta curry is made with plantains and is usually soaked in a light runny gravy.
While I love the taste that plantains add to kofta, I am not a big fan of the light gravy that it is soaked in. So I make the same rich gravy that I would make for a paneer kofta. And this fusion tastes exceptionally well.
Next time skip your regular meatballs/veg koftas and try this recipe instead. I am sure you will love it as much as we do.
