When I posted Kadhi’s recipe, Goofy called me and said how much she loved it and how much she is in love with anything that has besan and the same goes for me… I love besan… and then I told her about this dish that I heart… typically a rajisthani dish which is pretty popular in Punjab too… So goofy here is the rec for u πŸ™‚ GatteKi Sabji… another dish I love


for the gattas

  • 1 cup besan
  • 1/2 cup curd
  • 1 tbsp dhaniya seeds
  • 1 tsp suanf seeds
  • 1 tsp ajwain
  • 1 tbsp kasoori methi
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • salt and chilli powder to taste
  • 4 cups water for steaming

for the gravy

  • 2 medium sized onion grated
  • puree of 2-3 tomatoes
  • 1 tsp ginger paste (u can also add garlic paste if u want)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp jeera seeds
  • 2 tsp dhaniya powder
  • salt and chilli powder to taste
  • 1 tsp oil


  • Keep the water in a broad pan/kadai to boil
  • Mix the rest of the ingredients together to form a very soft dough

  • Mold in cylindrical shape

  • put in the boiling water and let it cook for about 5-10 mins till they are done

  • filter out the gattas and keep the water aside

  • cut them into 1 inch pieces

  • now heat 1 tsp oil in a kadai for the gravy
