Palak Kofta Kebab


Palak Kofta Kebabs:A delicious combination of spinach leaves and aromatic makes a wonderful kofta kebabs that can be served anytime with or without any companions. I tried to make the vegetarian version of lamb kofta kebabs and was really happy to get the wonderful results.These kofta kebabs taste so yummy and were gone in just a few minutes. My lo thought they were pakoras as she is familiar with the name and enjoyed eating few of them and later on she told me while eating "mama yummy pakora"

First I planned to make a mint yogurt dip with the kebabs but later on had to drop the idea as I was running out of yogurt and were too lazy to run to the store. Actually, they tasted so delicious even without any sauce but you can always make a sauce or chutney to pair with.
