notes:

  • firstly, make sure to toast the roti well else it will be difficult to powder.
  • also, the roti helps to absorb the moisture from the potato, so add the roti powder accordingly depending on the quality of the potato.
  • additionally, the gravy has to be spicy else the kofta will taste bland.
  • finally, roti kofta curry recipe is healthy compared to malai kofta as we are not adding maida.
