Gatte Ki Sabji recipe | Gatte Ki Sabji | Gatte Ki sabzi with step-by-step process and pics -Gatte ki sabji is a Mouth-watering delicacy from Rajasthani Cuisine which has Gram flour (Besan) dumplings as the main ingredient. In this Gatte Ki Sabji recipe, Curd can be completely omitted by increasing the tomato puree quantity as I have used the base of onion-tomato along with some curd for gravy. Gatte Ki Sabji is also called Gatta curry or Besan gatte ki sabji,

When you do not have any veggies at home or when it is time to call a guest at home or when you feel like eating something traditional then this is the dish to bank on.

It tastes good with Bajra roti, Jowar Roti, Missi Roti, or even chapati or Rice.

Gatte is sabji has many variations as some people make it with curd, some go with onion-tomato gravy. We can choose the gravy we like but the trick is to reserve the water that you get from boiling the gatte and add it to the gravy as it will make the gravy tasty and give it the required texture.

Use of curd while kneading the dough for Besan gatte is another secret of good gatta curry as it will make the gatte soft which is a prerequisite for a delectable besan gatte ki sabji.
