Everyday food- Gatte ki Sabzi
Hello! my Foodie friends!!
Though now we live in a city where fresh vegetables and fruits are available amply throughout the year because there are some all-time family favourites that are still made and relished even over fresh veggies.One of them is Gatte ki sabzi.Traditionally, it is made in curd gravy but I prepare this in onion masala.
With very few ingredients and quick cooking process and this one is definitely my go-to when I have forgotten to place an order for fresh vegetables.
Everyday Food – Gatte ki Sabzi
For my style Gatte ki Sabzi you will require following ingredients
Ingredients For making Gatte:
Gram flour – 1 cup
half a teaspoon each of salt,caraway and cumin seeds, turmeric powder and red chilli powder
A pinch of asafoetida and baking soda each
One table spoon oil
water enough to make a soft dough
Keep water in a deep pan for boiling
kneed a soft dough with all above ingredients
For small sausage shaped cylinders of the dough
Drop these gram flour cylinders into the water when it is at a good rolling boil
boil for 5-6 minutes or until the cylinder float on top. This is how we ascertain if the gattas are cooked
Remove the cylinders from water and allow them to cool. Once cooled cut pieces of bite size.
Gatte are now ready
Ingredients For making Onion masala :
One medium sized onion – grated
Two teaspoons ginger and garlic paste
half a table spoon each of Kashmiri red chilli and red chilli powder, Coriander powder
Oil for tempering
handful of cumin seeds
pinch of asafoetida
handful kasuri methi
handful chopped coriander
Heat oil in a pan. add cumin seeds and asafoetida.Allow seeds to crackle
Add grated onion and ginger garlic paste. Saute this on low flame nicely till oil separates from the mixture
Add all Dry masala powders. Mix well. Cover and continue to cook for 2 mins on low flame such that masala does not burn or change colour but gets roasted and oil separates
Add 250 ml of water and allow the mixture to come to boil
Add Kasuri methi and coriander at this point and allow the gravy to reduce in size to half.
Add gatta to the gravy now and finally, cook covered for 2 mins. Adjust the consistency of the gravy at this time by adding water as needed
Switch off the gas and the dish is ready to serve with Roti or rice. Though this can be eaten with any roti or rice, it goes rather best with missi roti.
