Rajasthani Gatte Ki Sabzi
Written by Jayashree
Spread the love

India, being a land of diverse culture and traditions, we are a home to different cuisines also. Each state has its own kind of food depending on the availability of the cereals and pulses. People dwelling since some time, tend to follow their own method of cooking and thus there have been a significant change in the ingredients used and the process involved. The food can be broadly classified into five kinds as Northern, Southern, Eastern, Western and North Eastern. Rajasthani cuisine, is one such kind which is very famous and delicious.

Enthusiasm of the blog hop and the desire to learn new culinary skills bought us to the Rajasthani theme. I was excited as this had never been made in my kitchen. Being a foodie, I had a mind to try the very famous  Dal Bati Churma,but with many other things coming up, I stuck myself to the spicy accopmpaniments which I can use more frequently. 

Rajasthan ,being a desert, one cannot find much vegetables. Hence, pulses are extensively used. Gram flour is used in many of their dishes. Rajasthani cuisine does not use much of onion and garlic either. Many dishes I find to be sans these ingredients. Gatte  Ki sabzi is a popular accompaniment and I was tempted to try it. Without much ado ,to the recipe now.

                                           Gatte Ki Sabzi 

Gatte are small elongated dumplings made of gram flour mixed with a few spices. They are at first boiled in hot water and later fried. These dumplings are immersed in a gravy of yoghurt.
