Malai Kheema Kofta Curry – Foodiful :)

A. K. makes good salad and vegetable stews. It’s all well and healthy. But, I don’t always want healthy meals, you see! Yeah…especially after a loooong day wrangling the little one.  I want more along the lines of comfort food! Scratch that. I always want the Comfort Foods. Skip the leaves…add more meat, please. And, do you think…he would ever listen to me?! That’s why…I rule this kitchen! For a craving soul – mince the meat, add some malai…dip in the curry. Life. Life is worth living. Relax…n…Enjoy this recipe, folks. :)
