  1. Hi Preeti,

    Thanks for this recipe. I have been wanting to make this from a longtime and you had the perfect recipe. Lauki kofta is one of my favourite childhood dishes. Have'nt had it from a long long time(since I live in Canberra-Australia). I tried it for the first time and it came out very delicious. Thanks one again.
