Gatte ki sabji( Sabzi)

Rajasthan, a state in India, has its own specialties when it comes to delicacies. Gatte ki sabji is one of that delicacy prepared using simple ingredients however has amazing taste. Though it is specialty of Rajasthan,its famous all over India. Other parts of India have their own variation of besan curry similar to to gatte ki sabji and I have shared couple of recipes of the same. It seem Rajasthani  marriage celebrations are incomplete without this dish. The main ingredient of the recipe is besan (gram flour) which is used to prepare Gatte. The curry is based out of tomato, curd and mix of spices. In this recipe, I have also added fresh fenugreek (methi) leaves which make Gatte’s more delicious. Making dough for Gatte is little tricky and it should be of wheat flour chapati’s consistency. The delicious curry goes very well with Roti, Rice, Naan and Paratha.

Recipe Notes
  1. Gatte dough consistency should be not very loose and not very hard. It should be of chapatti dough consistency.
  2. If gatte dough is loose it might break during boiling, and if it's too hard, the gatte would become hard. 
  3. The boiling time of gatte roll would depend on the size of the dough cylinder to adjust the time accordingly. 
  4. In case the dough becomes loose, add little more gram flour to it to bring to correct consistency.
