Chicken Kofta is minced chicken balls.It’s Main Course of Indian cuisine. In the simplest form, koftas consist of minced chicken with spices.The meat is often mixed with other ingredients such as rice, eggs, and vegetables, to form a smooth paste. They can be grilled, fried, steamed, poached, baked or marinated, and may be served with a rich spicy sauce.check my recipe of Spicy Chicken Kofta Curry.
Makhni means cream based gravy which is prepared using tomatoes cooked along with Indian spice ,butter & cream added for a smooth texture.Koftas in India are usually served cooked in a spicy /mild, curry/gravy and are eaten with Cooked rice or a variety of Indian flatbreads.
