Kofta  is a Middle Eastern, Indian and Balkan meatball or meatloaf. In the simplest form, koftas consist of balls of minced or ground meat—usually beef or lamb—mixed with spices and/or onions. In India, Turkey and Iran, koftas are usually made of lamb, beef, mutton or chicken, whereas Greek and Cypriot varieties are usually made of beef, veal, pork or mixtures of them.

They are often shaped into meatballs which are prepared with a mixture of ground meat, rice and leeks, and served dry. In India, vegetarian varieties, like lauki kofta and shahi aloo kofta, are popular, as religious beliefs generally forbid consumption of meat. In Iran, Balochistan and Pakistan, koftas are served with a spiced gravy, as dry versions are considered to be kebabs. Shrimp and fish Kofta are found in South India, West Bengal, Bangladesh and in some parts of the Persian Gulf states.

What oil do you suggest? Will mustard oil do?
sabu.dawdy (author)  lokeshdevraj6 months ago
I prefer Any vegetable oil. Mustard oil can be used for frying. If in your area mustard oil is used in cookong.you may use it. However the favour will be highly in rich
