Gatte Ka Saag/ Gatte Ki Sabzi- Rajasthan Cuisine

Today I post one of very popular and amazing recipe from the Rajasthan region, all of you heard about this curry. It’s known as Gatte ki Saag or Gatte ki Sabzi. This recipe comes under regional food theme for BM#32. My mother calls Besan ki Arbi to this Gatte Ka Saag. It’s a perfect match with Bajre ki roti and motichoor ke laddoo.

There is no need of vegetable for this recipe. It can be divided into two processes; one is preparing gatte or gram flour dumplings and second is gravy. For gatte, we have to combine gram flour with flavorful spices and then knead the smooth dough. This gatte will serve with tomato based gravy. Main ingredient in this gravy is curd and other side tomatoes are completely optional.
