How to make Govind gatte

  1. Mix the ingredients mentioned under "outer dough" to form a soft dough. Use required amount of water to form the same.
  2. Now chop the raisins and cashew nuts. Mix these with the khoya, salt and pepper powder to form the filling.
  3. Take small roundels of the besan dough and stuff each dough with little khoya mixture and shape them.
  4. Now boil a saucepan of water and once it starts boiling, add the raw gatte into it.
  5. Boil them for 15 minutes or until the gatte float up which means they are done.
  6. Now strain them and keep aside. (I have deep fried these boiled gatte for that extra crispy texture on top. This can be avoided on personal preference).
  7. To make the gravy make the tomato paste along with the ginger paste.
  8. Heat a kadhai with oil, add the jeera and Hing. Once it splutters, add the powdered masalas followed by the tomato paste.
  9. Cook for few minutes till the raw smell of the tomatoes are gone.
  10. Now add the curd while continuously stirring.
  11. Add the salt and kasuri methi. Cook till masala leaves oil.
  12. Add the remnants of the boiled water of the gattes into the masala to form the gravy.
  13. Once it boils, add little besan dissolved in water to the boiling gravy to make it thick.
  14. Add the gattes and coriander leaves. Serve
