Tonight I made Mamta's beef/lamb kofta recipe (I used beef) for a someone and it was amazing, apparently. I never tried it because I don't like meat much. The only meat I eat is chicken, and that is only about once a week at the most. Thanks for all of your amazing recipes and your continual guidance, Mamta. Much love. x

You are most welcome Sid. I made some vegetables and fish Koftas yesterday. You can always make those for yourself, when you make meat ones for others. The curry sauce or gravy is the same.

I use lamb, rather than beef, which can get tough if slightly over cooked. I usually grind the meat down in a processor, which I find gives a better mouth feel. I do the same with burgers for the same reason.

Thanks for the tip. I will make them with lamb next time and see how well that one goes down. I also made malvani chicken yesterday for the first time ever. I got the recipe from someone on youtube. I will have to try making Mamta's vegetable koftas sometime next week. Looks great!

I believe that kofta came from Persia originally, so would have used goat, probably.

Yes, in India too it is generally made with goat meat, where a lot of non-vegetarian cuisine is Persian inspired. I also make it with lamb when I have a few Hindu friends coming to dinner, because most don't eat beef. Our family does and beef is easily available all over UK. so I tend to use beef also. It works equally well with mince chicken too, but the flavour is different of course.
