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.
