Rainy days make you wanna have something warm. Making a boring vegetable into something tasty is quite a challenge. One such rainy day I faced a dilemma of recreating something delicious from cabbage. Cabbage Kofta curry an awesome dish that is warm and filling. To my surprise both my kids (age 6 & 4) just loved it!
I adapted this recipe from the very famous malai kofta. Using cabbage to make the kofta gave it an unique crunchy surprise. I am sure we would have relished consuming just the koftas on a platter 🙂
Adding an element such as the curry took the entire dish to another level. We consumed kofta curry along with roti and steamed rice. Believe me folks I was asked to repeat it next time we had cabbage at home.
