Gatte Ka Pulao Recipe | Gatta Pulao | Rajasthani Gatta PulavGatte Ka Pulao is associated with Rajasthani cuisine and Marwari culture hence it is called Marwari Gatte ka pulao or Rajasthani Gatte ka pulao as well. Gatte ka  Pulao is a traditional rice delicacy in which cooked rice is combined with gram flour dumplings, called Gatte. In this recipe, I have used ghee in the recipe which is the key ingredient in Rajasthani cuisine.

Gram flour is extensively used in Rajasthan as most of the vegetables are not available throughout the year.

Whenever you get the chance to visit Rajasthan, never miss tasting authentic Gatte Ka Pulao along with the following Rajasthani special dishes.
