An affair to remember – Malai Kofta Kashmiri

The bright side of the Mughal invasion on India is undoubtedly the

cuisine they brought to our land and gave our souls a new form of

nirvana. Soft, sensuous nutty flavors of almonds, pistachios, apricots,

raisins, plums, walnuts and other ingredients from the exotic lands of

Persia collided with bold, robust spices of the land to create an explosion

of flavors that the world today is eternally grateful for.

Predominantly meat-based, the versatile Mughal cooking on meeting

with India, explored not only various spices like cumin, coriander, ginger,

pepper, cloves, and cinnamon, but also began playing with vegetarian

ingredients like potato and cottage cheese! The much famous love-child

of the affair of meat-loving Mughal cuisine with vegetarian Indian cuisine

is the Malai Kofta – an affair that was to remember and relish forever!

Soft potato dumplings with an aromatic heart of cottage cheese stuffing

enveloped in the love of a creamy and mildly spiced onion-cashew gravy

create a sweet balance to the fiery Indian recipes and bring out the

contrast and a tantalizing dining experience. Popular among the breads

and rice dishes equally, the malai kofta is a special creation that also

knows how to blend in to create a fulfilling experience!

Topping our list of popular recipes, the Malai Kofta Kashmiri is the star of

our vegetarian brigade at The Jewel. Shaped in the loving hands of our

expert chefs, the koftas soak up the velvet curry, with the healthy dose

of dried fruits and transport you to the royal dining rooms of the Mughal
