The Mughlas made use of every ingredient in their cooking and in the most unusual ways. This dish as the name suggests uses phal or fruit to make the kofta.

Raw banana is combined with a few basic spices and deep-fried to make wonderfully tasty kofta. These are eaten with an equally unusual gravy that is a little sweet as it makes use of honey. A must try for everyone!

Without any binding agent the koftas just collapsed in the oil while frying
