GatteyKiKaddhi_Featured1

Gatte ki Kaddhi is a spicy delicacy from the state of Rajasthan. It is made with gram flour dumplings flavored with spices and steamed to form ‘gatte‘. Then these gatte are dunked in yogurt based curry and best enjoyed with puris or rice. My mother makes another version of it where gatte are dunked in tomato garlic based curry which we call Gatte ki Sabji. I prefer my mother’s version because it becomes little tangy in taste and it is made with love 🙂 I will soon upload recipe for Gatte ki Sabji.

Directions :

1. In a bowl take gram flour and add salt, turmeric and chili powder.

5 . In a large vessel pour water and boil it till you start seeing bubbles. At this time immerse the sticks into the water. They will sink to the bottom.

6. Cook for 5-6 minutes on high flame or till you see the sticks start floating to the surface. That is when you know they are fully cooked. Take them out of the water carefully.
