Gatte ki Sabji Recipe (Rajasthan Special)

Rajasthani Gatte Recipe | Besan Gatte

Gatte ki Sabji is a very famous vegetable of Rajasthan. Gatte is prepared using besan(gram flour) which is then added to a curry made up of onion, tomato, curd. It can also be prepared without onion or tomato or both, just making curry using curd and masalas.

So, if you are not having any other vegetables at home to prepare, papad ki sabzi or gatte can be the choice.

The whole process of making gatte ki sabji is divided into two parts – the first is making gatte and the second is preparing the gravy.

One of the common problems that people face while preparing this is that gatte can become hard. The solution to this problem is that the dough kneaded for gatte should be in desi ghee. Also, the dough should be properly kneaded after adding curd to it.

Gatte ki sabji can be enjoyed best with roti or paratha. It is also prepared along with dal bati.

I am sharing an easy and quick recipe to make the perfect gatte ki sabji at home.
