Tips & Tricks
In order to make kofta soft make sure the Kadai is properly hot before frying ,simply check by putting small ball of potato to the heated oil if it comes up immediately the oil is properly heated.
Don't over heat the kofta after adding cream as it might release it's own oil into the dish.
Water and salt can be adjusted according to own preference
If required always add hot water to the dish so that the taste is maintained.
