What is Hariyali Gatte?

Shallow fried gram flour dumpling cooked in flavourful spinach gravy…  Combination of gatte and spinach gravy is awesome. Hariyali gatte is a very delicious and interesting twist to the regular gatte curry. Hariyali gatte can be served with chapattis or rice. No fancy bread is required. The dish itself is fancy enough.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Hariyali Gatte Recipe

Hariyali gatte recipe… the hariyali comes from spinach gravy and the gatte come from… gatte (obviously).

Both are tricky to make, at least for me. I was never happy with my spinach gravy. At times it would lose its color. At the time it would lose its texture. At times it would be too bland. And a lot more miserable things have happened with my spinach gravy. But this recipe gives a nice color, with awesome flavors and wonderful taste and texture!

For gatte, I have used my tried and tested recipe.

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!.
