Hello friends, I bet all of you had wonderful summery weekend. Finally it’s Monday and after two days of relaxing I am all pumped up to start a whole new week !! 😉 So what’s cookin?? It’s no onion no garlic Gatte ki sabzi also referred to as Besan gatta curry. Gatte ki sabzi or besan gatta curry is a specialty of Rajasthani Cuisine and no Rajasthani thali is complete without this dish.
Gatte is referred to chickpea flour dumplings that are rolled out like thin cylinders, boiled and later tossed in a spicy and flavorsome gravy. After boiling and cutting these dumplings I like to toast them in my appe pan and give them a crunchy taste. You can even fry these dumplings, but again that’s optional. Boiled lauki paste is used in preparing this yummy gravy but if you choose to use onion and garlic in the same recipe – ingredients and method are mentioned below. Just before serving, gatta curry is given a tempering/tadka of spices – but that is totally optional.
For those who follow MEATLESS MONDAYS- it’s a perfect vegetarian no onion no garlic recipe. A hearty meal that can be relished with steamed rice or warm rotis.
