Lauki (Bottle Gourd) Kofta With Tangy Yogurt Curry.

Lauki Kofta With Tangy Yogurt Curry!! I have cooked the lauki kofta curry with yogurt for the first time and it turn out to be the best and yummy curry.. I usually cook any rich gravies by adding cream or a milk but adding yogurt to this curry it gave a very nice texture and tangy taste and it was going very well with hot rice.. i simply love it... Every time i cook any kofta curry in my family everyone loves it, even i feel good because i don't have to cook any other side dish, this will do both the job, we can eat with Roti's and Rice too..
 
 
This recipe is adopted from Anjana Ji from Mayeeka. She is wonderful cook and i love her almost all the recipes. This was one of the best dish and i have followed her almost all the steps and the curry was delicious...
