'Kofta' is a very flexible food item, you can serve them as starter or you can soak them in gravy and serve as maincourse also. This was my very first attempt on 'kofta' and from the beginning I was a bit nervous because I often heard that while frying them, kofta has a chance to break. But I carefully maintained the proportion of ingredients and taaddaaa ...!! All of my 'kofta's came out perfectly and they were scrumptious. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turns out.
