Delicious Lauki Kofta (Bottle Gourd Kofta)

We all know what koftas are and how it tastes like. We have all heard of non-veg koftas generally made up of Chicken or Red Meat. Then, it came to my mind, why shouln’t I try to make a purely vegetarian kofta make from bottle gourd (lauki) with simple and easy preparation steps. So let’s come and do it. Ingredients and the steps of preparation of lauki koftas are listed below:

Getting it done:
