Gatte ki sabzi, an authentic dish from Rajasthani cuisine is a delicious curry prepared with gram flour as base ingredient. Gatte / cooked gram flour dumplings, which are added to the spicy curd gravy to make this irresistible curry. This famous Rajasthani Speciality vegetable, one can serve with Roti, Puris or Steamed Rice. I am sure none can say NO to this tangy , spicy and delicious vegetable 🙂 This vegetable also taste awesome with BAATI
Well I don’t think anyone needs more introduction for this tasty vegetable.
I am posting this recipe for PARYUSHAN special so made few changes according to the festival. Here I have not used Fresh Coriander or curry leaves. I used Dried Curry leaves and Kasuri Methi . One can add as per taste..
- Don’t use very sour curd as after cooking it will be very sour gravy and I feel , we love tangy taste not very sour .
- Always add some oil while making Gattas, else it will not turn soft.
- One can also fry Gattas in stead of boiling.
