Gatte ki sabji is a popular and all-time favorite marwari recipe with besan based steamed dumplings simmered in buttermilk laden tangy gravy. I had never heard of this sabji nor tasted, few days back i was watching a TV show called Chak Le India on NDTV Goodtimes. There he was showing all marwari dishes in that i liked only gatte ki sabji, because it was sounding very different and very tasty too. On the same day i tried making this gatte ki sabji and it was very tasty with rice and i love it...
1 cup Besan (Gram flour)
1 pinch red chilly powder
1 pinch turmeric powder
2 tsp curd
2 tsp oil and salt to taste
2 cup of buttermilk
1onion, 2 green chilly (finely chopped)
5 to 10 curry leaves
2 dry red chilly
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp turmeric powder, 2 tsp red chilly powder
1tsp ginger garlic paste
4-5 tsp oil and salt to taste
In a mixing bowl add besan, cumin seeds, oil, curd, salt, chilly & turmeric powder in to it & make a thick dough (if needed add little amount of water )
Divide the dough in to 3-4 pieces.
Roll every piece & cut them in to small capsule like pieces. (these are the Gatte)
Now add these gatte in to the boiled water & allow them to boil up to 10-12min (when gatte boiled properly they will appear on a surface of water)remove the water from boiled gatte & keep then aside.
Heat a deep frying pan add oil, when the oil is hot add dry red chilly, curry leafs, mustard seeds and cloves, when they splutter, add chopped onion and green chilly and fry to golden brown.
Then add turmeric and red chilly powder and fry for another 1 to 2 minutes. Then add buttermilk and mix it well, now add the prepared gatte and salt and cook for 4 to 5minutes in a low flame.
Serve hot with Roti or Rice.. I prefer with Rice.
