Air Fried Hariyali Cabbage Kofta

Cabbage kofta is made without frying them. I have used an Air Fryer for making the dumplings. This way I have cut the oil from the koftas. The gravy is made with spinach and onions without using cream, cashew paste and lot of oil. I can assure you that by following this recipe you can easily cut down drastically on fat content without having to compromise on the taste. This dish is a pleasant change from the traditional Malai Kofta Curries.
