Yummy Veggie Koftas! This recipe is from www.seattleguru.com. 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.
