Most of us love a good kofta curry.. I love all kinds of kofte..Lauki/ghia, paneer,malai kofta,nargis kofta,vegetable kofta,cabbage kofta. However,I do understand how much it sets me back on my diet plan.Once a while any kofta curry is good for you, but what happens when you have guests coming over almost every weekend.You do not want to treat them to same curries.So here is a kofta curry which is different,Mushroom Kofta.Mushroom vegan dumplings in a curry and this is not a creamy curry,but a vegan gluten-free one.This desi mushroom recipe is easy on tummy.Usually, mushroom recipes are fairly simple.Put them on an avo toast,on a pizza slice,in a curry or have them scrambled.This vegan ball reciep is a gravy full of yummy flavor.
Vegan foodie and real food
I love my heavy malai kofta which is my go to curry,at almost every party,family dinner or team outings at restaurants but managing weight is always a constant struggle for any foodie.Hence, I decided to cut down my dairy intake and slowly inch towards being a vegan.Luckily, we grew up on food which is mostly plant based.Thankfully being a vegetarian in India does not include eggs unlike the west, but it does contain dairy.Most Indian recipes can be made vegan if no dairy fat (ghee or paneer or curd/buttermilk) is added.
This recipe is similar to traditional recipe but less time taking.Also,you need no cottage cheese. Most mushroom recipes are simple and easy.It is also lower in calories. One cup paneer roughly has 350 calories while fried mushrooms only has only 150.
