  • red chili powder – 1 tsp
  • green cardamoms – 2
  • cinnamon sticks – 2 inch pieces
  • roasted cumin powder – 1 tsp
  • garam masala powder -¼ tsp
  • fresh coriander leaves chopped
  • salt to taste
 I used vegetables which were available at that time, one can use any of choice.
One can add fried onions too, it gives nice taste.
METHOD:
For gattas::

Take a large mixing bowl. Combine all the ingredients for the gattas and knead into a stiff dough. Use 2 tbsp of water if needed.

Divide into equal parts and roll into cylindrical shape.Boil enough water in a Vessel. Add rolls to the boiling water and boil for 5-7 minutes.Remove from heat. Drain and keep aside. Cut each cylinder into Pieces and keep  aside.  Once cool completely shallow fry gattas till golden brown color . If making vegetable frying is not necessary but for making pulao yes one has to. It gives the perfect crunchy taste.  One can add 1-2 tsp Dry Fenugreek Leaves (Kasuri Methi) too while making dough for gatta. It enhance the taste.

For Pulao:
In same non stick pan, in which we fried Gattas, take 3-4 tsp Oil / Ghee.

Now add Cumin Seeds, green cardamom pods, Cloves, cinnamon sticks, red chilies,  bay leaf and saute on a medium heat for 30 seconds. Add Asafoedita and boiled vegetables. Add all spices and cook for a minute.Now add cooked rice and Gattas , mix well.

Sprinkle some water (Not more than 2 tsp)  and cover the lid. Allow it to cook for 4-5 mins. Stir Occasionally. Garnish with chopped Coriander.
