Veggie Nargisi Koftas

                  My second post for the "Meatless dishes" theme... is the veggie version of the Famous Nargisi Kofta.. Nargisi Kofta is a Noth Indian dish from the Mughalai cuisine.The name 'Nargis' comes from the resemblance to a flower named Narcissus, a winter flower grown in India.When the kofta's are cut into halves, it resembles the flower. In the meat version it consist of ground meat mixture wrapped around hard boiled egg.Here i have replaced the meat mixture with paneer and egg with potato. It have served it as starter.
