I made the nargisi kofta using ground beef. I did reduce the oil to a ¼ cup but next time I'll even half my oil quantity to 1/8 cup. It's more than enough for our family. I served it with plain steamed rice and I think it's better because it brings out the flavours of the kofta curry. Perfect! Thank you loads for posting.

I’ve seen pakoray with boiled egg inside but nargisi koftay recipe just takes the cake! I never even imagined how tasty these nargisi koftay are and it’s even more delicious for me if I leave the egg half boiled so that I can enjoy the melted yolk when I open the kofta.
