Koftas consist of balls of minced or ground meat/vegetables - mixed with spices and/or onions.
In India, vegetarian varieties include koftas made from potato, calabash (bottle gourd), paneer or banana (raw banana). In Europe, kofta is often served as fast-food sandwich in kebab shops.
Koftas in India are usually served cooked in a spicy curry/gravy and are eaten with boiled rice or a variety of Indian breads.
The koftas are then either baked or deep fried and simmered with tomato sauce.

Plain rice refers to rice that has been cooked either by steaming or boiling. You may cook plain rice with or without salt, depends on your taste.
The terms steamed rice or boiled rice are also commonly used for plain rice. Any variant of Asian rice (both Indica and Japonica varieties), African rice or wild rice, glutinous or non-glutinous, long-, medium-, or short-grain, of any colour, can be used. Rice for cooking can be whole grain or milled.
Plain rice is very simple to cook and takes not too much time. You don't need to have a rice cooker to make plain rice. You can use a saucepan or a pressure cooker.
In India rice is cooked daily in main meals in many families. Plain rice goes well with any gravy dish.
