ABOUT Rajasthani Gatte ki Sabji RECIPE

Rajasthani delicacy made with besan is Gatte ki Sabzi. Cylindrical chickpea dumplings cooked with an exotic and flavorful curry made with curd and other spices often tickles my taste buds. So to rest my native food craving, today I made Gatte ki sabzi and enjoyed it with rice, seasoned curd and some salad.

  1. How to prepare Gatte : In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients listed above. Slowly add water and knead to make a tight dough. Make sure the dough should be tight just like we make for poori.
  2. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes. Hheat a wok full of water, add little salt and few drops of oil and let it come to a boil. Pinch a handful of dough and roll it over the counter to make a thick cylindrical ribbon.
  3. Once the water starts boiling, drop in the cylindrical ribbons in water and allow it to boil on a medium flame.
  4. Once the ribbons start cooking, they will rise and float above. Turn off the gas and pass them all through a sieve to strain water and allow it to cool.
  5. Place those ribbons on a chopping board and cut them into equal size pieces and collect them in a bowl.
  6. For the curry : Heat oil in a wok, add mustard and cumin seeds. Add broken red chilies, asafoetida, ginger garlic paste and saute till golden. Add finely chopped or ground onions.
  7. Add turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala powder and corainder powder. Whisk the curd nicely and keep aside.
  8. As soon as the masala is done, add whisked curd and mix nicely. Add a little water to get the required consistency. Adjust salt and allow the curry to come to a boil.
  9. Transfer the gatte pieces in the curry and let it cook for 5-6 minutes on a low flame. Keep the sabzi covered. Garnish the gatte ki sabzi with finely chopped coriander.
