Koftas are actually spicy meatballs in rich gravy.
But Soyabean koftas are vegetarian alternative to this dish .
Koftas in many Hindu families are made from paneer or cabbage or lauki or soyabean keema in place of minced meat.
From childhood we have seen our moms cooking them in special occasions
Many sentiments are connected with these special dishes.
But now a days , these dishes are prepared as and when one desires.
