    Kendra PeloJoaquin's Note:

    Yummy Veggie Koftas! This recipe is from I love spinach, and paneer and koftas, so I am so happy about this recipe. Some people prefer to use tofu or cottage cheese instead of paneer, but I find that it's very easy to make my own with milk, lemon juice and cheese cloth, and TOTALLY worth it.

      This took me more than an hour to prepare. BUT, this is my first time trying koftas. It's not a diffcult recipe, just a bit time consuming. I *did* find paneer in the freezer of the Indian market. I didn't have whole garam masala, so I used ground. I had only whole kasuri methi, I now have ground. LOL. It didn'y say to in the recipe, but I squeezed the spinach as dry as I could. I was amazed at how thinly I could spread the spinach mixture & easily molded around the paneer. On a few koftas, the spinach pulled away from the paneer when frying. Delicious nonetheless. VERY DELICIOUS!!! The sauce was delicious. We gobbled them all up & wanted more. Thank you for sharing! Made for PAC Spring '07.
