Icle Kofte/ Icle Dumpling (Vegetarian)

Icle kofta is really fantastic dumpling recipe in which crust prepared with broken wheat and paneer and stuffed with paneer and onions. It’s really unique and tasty version of kofta or dumpling which you can serve as snack with green coriander dip and tomato ketchup. Even you can serve this recipe with tomato and onion based gravy as main course. 

This time I choose Special theme in BM where I get chance to taste and explore the recipe from my co-blogger’s blog. So for this I choose Gayathri’s blog Gayathri Cook Spot, she is really fabulous cook and friend of mine in BM. Last time, she had posted one really unique recipe Icle Kofte under dumpling theme which attracts me a lot. Here I get the chance to explore this kofta recipe in my kitchen and share with my friends. Hope she will like it my trial.
