Lauki Kofta Curry Recipe | No Onion No Garlic Lauki (Bottlegourd) Kofta Curry

Lauki Kofta is made of deep fried bottle gourd dumplings immersed in a spicy tomato-Curd gravy. We can also do this with usual onion-tomato gravy, but I tried making this as no onion no garlic so that we can even make this yummy dish on the fasting days also. This is one of the simple to make kofta curry. Whenever we think of kofta, we all love Malai kofta so much than any other varieties. But Bottlegourd is also very delicious and also healthy. We can also steam cook the bottle gourd dumplings or use Paniyaram pan to avoid more oil. Try this No Onion No Garlic Lauki Kofta and Im sure you will enjoy with Roti!
