      Gatte Ki Sabzi hails from Rajasthani cuisine where chickpea dumplings are dunked in a spicy and tangy yogurt-based gravy. Gram flour is used to make the coating for the dumplings and the dish is served mostly during big events, family gatherings, and wedding parties. Gatte Ki Sabzi is best served with parathas and rotis. For those days when you don't have a lot of vegetables lying around the house ... , this recipe is a lifesaver because of its simple ingredients. We've made a Gatte Ki Sabzi video for you to show how to make Gatte Ki Sabzi at home. You can watch that for the steps on making the dish and you can also modify it based on your needs. If you'd like to use something else besides gram flour or make it low-carb, you can go with coconut flour and that would work just as well. You can also serve this dish with a side of piping hot Basmati rice if you want.

      Gatte Ki Sabji - Tips On Making the Recipe Easy

      If you are in a hurry for some reason, you can skip the step involving onion and garlic in the gatte ki sabzi recipe. There is no fixed amount of water that you have to use in the gatte ki sabzi recipe. You can add water to change the consistency of the gravy. Most of the time, gravy thickens after it gets cooled. If that happens to your gatte ki sabji, add some water in the pan along with sabji and heat it for a minute. There are mainly two methods of making the gatte ki sabji. One method is to make the gatte, pan fry them and then add them to the curry. Another method is the traditional method in which you don’t have to pan-fry the besan ke gatte. You just have to boil them and then add them straight to the curry. This means that if you are in a hurry, you can choose the gatte ki sabji recipe in which you do not have to pan-fry the gatte. A good rule of thumb for knowing the time for boiling gatte is this – let them boil until they start to float on the surface of the water. Without proper boiling, your gatte will not give a consistent taste in the besan gatte ki sabji. If you follow the recipe step by step and yet your gatte becomes hard, you can try adding a small amount of extra oil and yoghurt to the besan gatte ki sabji. To check whether the cylindrical rolls are well cooked or not, just insert a knife in the roll. If the knife comes out clean, this means that the cylindrical rolls are cooked. Otherwise, cook them for 2 to 3 minutes more.

      Tips For Extra Taste

      Take curd made from full-fat milk. Curd made from low-fat milk or toned milk does not give the desired consistency and taste in the besan ke gatte ki sabji. The most important thing you can do to make your besan ke gatte soft is to knead the besan dough well. Otherwise, there are high chances that the besan ke gatte will turn out to be hard. Add some curd while you knead besan to make gatte. With curd, the gatte that we get from the dough is soft without which you can not have a delectable sabji. Some people like to add baking soda to their recipe. It is not essential to add, but if you want you can add 0.25 tbsp of baking soda while you prepare the gravy for besan gatte ki sabji. Beginners often do not stir the ingredients while they come to a boil. This leads to the curdling of the curd. And this tip does not just apply to gatte ki sabji recipes. In any recipe that involves cooking the gravy with curd, you have to keep stirring until the pan is removed from the heat. Some people like their gatte ki sabji to be extra spicy. If you are from that group of people, add 2 tbsp of red chilly powder. However, if the besan ke gatte ki sabji becomes too hot, you can reduce the amount of red chilly powder to ½ to 1 tbsp. Remember that you have to change the amount of coriander powder according to red chilly powder. Try not to take out all the spiciness from gatte ki sabji. Most Rajsthani cuisines taste best when they are prepared spicy. To counter the spice, you can take extra curd in your thali. Want some variation in your besan ke gatte ki sabji taste? You can add dried mint to the besan while you prepare the dough. If you have made extra gatte by chance or you have prepared lesser gatta curry, you can use the leftover gatte to make gatta pulao. The best part is that you do not even have to alter the pulao recipe in any way. Just fry the gatte and add them in pulao. Both of them get blended well naturally. For some variation in gatte ki sabzi taste, you can replace cumin seeds with carom seeds. There are many variations of gatte ki sabzi. Some people like to use curd while making it, others prefer to make a gravy of onions and tomatoes. You can choose the gravy according to your taste. Just remember that you have to save the water that you got from the boiling gatte. Add this water later to the gravy as it will add taste to the gravy and will also give the required texture to your Rajasthani gatte ki sabji.

      Tips On Storage

      If you are expecting guests, you can make gatte beforehand. Just prepare the gatte and store them in a fridge. Take them out the next day and then add them to the gravy and your gatte ki sabzi will be ready in minutes. If you are storing the gatte in the fridge, just make sure that you boil them again before adding them to the hot gatta curry. Otherwise, gatte will not taste fresh in gatte ki sabzi. Although you can store gatte for a day, do not wait to put them in the gravy once you have made it. For a proper blend, it is essential that you add gatte in the gravy as soon as you make it.

      Serving Ideas

      You can serve gatte ki sabji with phulka, roti, missi roti, paratha, or any other Indian flatbread. You can also serve this sabji with steamed rice. If you want to have the classic Rajsthani taste, serve it with missi roti. Usually, gatte ki sabji is eaten as a lunch or a dinner.

      The Takeaway

      Rarely do you get a rich taste from cuisines without putting a lot of effort into them. Gatte ki sabji is one such rare dish that will give you that taste without demanding a lot of effort. Once you know how to make gatte ki sabji, you can also try garlic chutney, besan ladoo, khandvi, dhokla. By now, you know almost everything about the recipe.
