My Nargisi Koftas do not cook according to the recipe I follow. They mostly get fragile and I don’t know which ingredient I should use to make them hard and soft both at a time.

Nargisi Khoftay is not easy to make especially when you stuff eggs in it. People mostly face that there Khoftas break while stirring them in gravy.
