Nargisi Kofta | Mughlai Dish

Today sharing one of famous recipe from Mughlai Cuisine. As we know that most of the mughlai recipes are inspired by Persian so here is no any exception.This is really popular kofta in North India. It can be serve in two ways like you can serve kofta simply as a sancks or you can serve it with delicious gravy as well as. I made this one  as a snacks when again I will try this one again definitely there should be a gravy with this kofta.

Basically the name Nargis came from alikeness of a winter seasoned flower of India. The flower has a yellow center arounding white petals which looks like an egg when you cut the koftas into halves. Nargisi kofta cosists of any keema with bolied egg. In keema category you can use any of the keema like chicken keema,mutton keema anything and the spiced keema will be the outside coating of boiled egg. Then the koftas will be deep fried. Serve kofta with salads and sauce.

As keema and egg both are using here so it is a protein rich snacks with delectable taste.
