Soya Malai Kofta Curry, Completely Vegan

Soya chunks are one of the important source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. Last month, I invited one of my family friend, whose daughter has recently turned Vegan. It was quite a challenge to make something interesting and complete meal for her. So I thought to make Soya Malai Kofta for her, that too completely Vegan. It was a big hit in the party, everybody loved it and it is no doubt a healthy and powerpacked dish. I decided from now on I'll make malai kofta this way only. You should also give this a try.
