What is Gatte ki Sabji?

Gatte ki Sabji Recipe – Gatte are gram flour dumplings, soft but steady (if made right). Gatte ki sabji is gatte cooked in spicy yogurt gravy, flavoured with cumin and asafetida and some basic spices. Gatte ki sabji is a Rajasthani preparation. Any Rajasthani thali is not complete without gatte ki sabji. Gatte ki sabji needs very few and handy ingredients and the best part is that it taste the best with the most simple bread i.e. roti or steamed rice.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Gatte ki Sabji

There are multiple ways of making gatte. Every recipe has a different ration of the ingredients. Similarly the gravy can also be made in many ways. I have kneaded the dough with curd/yogurt. For flavouring I have added some fennel seeds and whole coriander seeds. I have prepared the very basic gravy using curd/ yogurt. For tempering the gravy I have used ghee, cumin seeds and asafetida. Do not substitute oil for ghee. Ghee gives an awesome taste to the yogurt gravy.

To Make Gatte

1. Prepare dough for gatte : In a large bowl take 1 ½ cup gram flour, salt to taste, ½ tsp red chilli powder, ½ tsp fennel seeds, ½ tsp coriander seeds, 1/8 tsp fruit salt, and 2 tbsp oil. Mix everything. Add 3 tbsp yogurt, gradually. Prepare smooth and soft dough.

Tips:Do not add 3 tbsp curd in one go. Add ½ tbsp at a time initially and thereafter even less than that. The quantity of curd required depends on the quality of curd and gram flour used and therefore might vary.


2. Let the dough rest and thereafter make logs : Cover the dough and leave it for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, knead it once. Take portions of dough and make logs.


3. Boil the logs and cut to make gatte : Heat enough water in a pan. Once the water comes to a rolling boil, add 1 tsp oil and pinch of salt. Add the logs and boil them. Once they come on the surface, continue to boil for another 4-5 minutes. Thereafter take out the logs. Once they cool a bit cut them into ½ inch thickness. Keep the gatte aside.


To Make The Gravy

1. Prepare curd mix : Mix 1 ½ cup curd, 1 ½ cup water (preferably the left over water in which gatte were boiled) and 1 tsp corn flour. Mix everything well.

Tips:Make sure the curd is at room temperature and not cold otherwise it might curdle. Add little corn flour to curd to prevent it from curdling.


2. Heat ghee and add spices : Heat 2 tbsp ghee. Add 1 tsp cumin seeds and ¼ tsp asafetida. Add 2 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder and ¼ tsp turmeric powder. Give a quick mix.

Tips:To avoid the spices form getting burnt, add 2-3 tbsp of water.


3. Add curd mix : Reduce the flame. Add curd mix. Stir continuously. Let it come to a rolling boil. Thereafter simmer for 12-15 minutes.

Tips:Stirring continuously prevents curdling of curd.


To Make Gatte ki Sabji

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
