Kofta add zing to palak rice. Try making these soft and tasty kofta with low fat paneer and palak. Not only palak, but low fat paneer is also a health booster as it contains proteins, calcium and vitamin A. Steaming the kofta instead of frying not only slashes down the fat content but also helps to make them soft.
