Kachche Kele Ka Kofta | Raw Banana Curry | Restaurant Style Kele Ka Kofta

Posted by

This Kofta curry is my favorite among all the kofta curry’s I have ever tried. This dish is actually time-consuming as we have to prepare kofta, deep fry it and then preparing the curry but trust me this is worth trying. I can count on my fingertips the times I have bought raw bananas. Most of the time I ended up preparing kofta or Tikki from it. 😛 Though never got the chance to share the recipe with you all because it was gone even before clicking pictures. 😀 But today I decided to share the recipe and here it is. 🙂
