Gatte Ki Sabzi

Rajasthani-Gatte-ki-sabzi-recipe

Amongst the most popular Rajasthani cuisine, gatte ki sabzi comes close second, giving the most esteemed numero uno position to Dal Bati. However it is second to none as far as taste and deliciousness is concerned. Made from gram flour(besan) dumplings in a spicy and flavorsome gravy, this is a preparation you must give a try.

2. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and make small cylindrical rolls as shown and illustrated in picture.

3. Boil 5-6 cup water in a vessel and drop the gatte in boiling water. Cook for 10-15 minutes over medium flame. 

4. When gatte starts floating in water, it means they are done and should be taken off. Keep the gatte aside to cool. You may also keep boiled water aside to be added to the curry later.

5. When it cool down, cut this into small roundels.

6. Now heat oil in a wok and shallow/ deep fry the steamed gatte till they are golden in colour. (steamed gatte without frying can also be added to the gravy)

For the curry-

1. Heat oil in a wok, add bayleaf, clove, black cardamom and cinnamon stick. Afterwards, add cumin seeds and asafoetida.

2. When the cumin seeds crackle, add ginger-green chilli, tomato paste and turmeric powder, cook till oil surfaces. Stir occasionally.

3. Add red chilly powder, coriander powder and cook for 2-3 minutes.

4. Meanwhile beat the curd well in a beater and add 2 tsp gram flour into the curd, mix well.

5. Add this curd mixture to the gravy, mix well. Now add 1 cup of water which we kept aside earlier, and keep stirring till the first boil occurs.

6. Turn the flame low and cook the mix for 4-5 minutes or until desired consistency is achieved. Stir occasionally.

7.  Add gatte, garam masala and salt to the curry, mix well. Put the flame off.

8. Garnish with coriander and serve hot with roti, paratha or rice
