Cauliflower Cheese Kofta with Gravy
It has been almost a month my balance cauliflower still waiting in the fridge to be cooked. At last i found solution for that. Thanks to Raks Kitchen for this wonderful recipe, with a minor modification prior availability of ingredients in my kitchen racks. Even though it takes time to prepare it, when everybody says nice and tasty, the time that you have spent worth it. This is one of the versatility of cooking cauliflowers apart from stir frying. The idea of stuffing cheese came instantly when i wonder how the cheese will melt and taste together. People had invented this before myself. Anyway this is how to prepare this wonderful, scrumptious Cauliflower Cheese Kofta with gravy.
