Who said that fish fingers have to be orthogonal parallelopipeds covered in breadcrumbs? This low-fat Middle Eastern version adds a whole new meaning to Fish Fingers.

Titli's Tips
I like to serve this by placing a bed of rice on a plate, then use a slotted spoon to create a bed of vegetables on the rice. Place some kofta on the veggies then spoon on as much of the liquid as you like.

The gravy is quite peppery-hot. You have been warned!
