How to Make Delicious and Healthy Whole Food Plant Based Malai Kofta

This vegan version of the traditional malai kofta dish is made without deep frying or using heavy cream, making it a healthier option. Here are some healthy swaps you could try:

  • The koftas are made with potatoes, carrots, and tofu instead of homemade paneer.
  • Raisins add sweetness to the kofta mixture instead of sugar and make it even more delicious.
  • The creamy gravy is made with cashews, whole coconut milk, and spices instead of heavy cream for a flavorful vegetarian dish that is dairy-free too.
  • Use almond flour instead of all-purpose flour to bind the kofta mixture.

  • Use water instead of olive oil, coconut oil or ghee for sautéing the onions and garlic.

  • Add fresh ginger and garlic paste instead of a packaged product to the gravy for a flavorful kick.

  • Use vegetable broth instead of water for a richer flavor in the gravy.

  • Garnish with fresh herbs like coriander to the kofta mixture for extra flavor and nutrition.

This recipe uses many of these healthy swaps.
