Kachche Kele Ka Kofta| Kofta In Mustard Gravy

Posted by

The options with Raw Banana are very limited for me 😛 as I either end up making  Banana Chips or Kele ka Pakoda. Kachcha Kela/ Raw Banana is a good source of Iron and hence is good for Women.
Kachche Kele Ka Kofta/ Raw Banana Kofta is a very time consuming recipe as you need to prepare kofta and gravy separately. Hence we prepare these occasionally.
Kachche Kele Ka Kofta is a dish than can be prepared in many ways. I made Kele Ka kofta in mustard gravy which tastes like Bengali Fish Curry.
Serves 3-4
