Todays recipe comes from a dear friend Kavita Durgani from calcutta. “Ghatta” is a dumpling made from gram flour (besan). Gram flour is very popular in many desi dishes. Gram flour also known as chickpea flour is gluten free and is good for diabetics. This is an innovative recipe so do try it out.
200 gms Gram flour (chickpea flour/besan)
1 tsp coriander powder
2 tbsp Ghee or oil
250 gms Yogurt (curds)
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Oil
Mix besan while adding 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp red chilly powder, 1/2 tsp. coriander powder and ghee or oil
Make a stiff dough. Make 5-6 thin and long strips of the dough.
Put these strips in boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Cut these gattas into small pieces.
Strain the yogurt through a strainer. Add 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp red chilly powder, 1/2 tsp. dhaniya powder and turmeric powder to the curd. Mix well.
Add the gatta pieces. Heat oil in a pot. Fry some cumin seeds and curry leaves and then add the beaten yogurt with the ghattas in it.
Cook it for 5-7 minutes while stirring continuously till it comes to a boil.
Simmer the flame and cook for another 5-7 minutes.Turn off the gas. Finally heat up a teaspoon of oil and add some chilli powder to it, pour it over the curry.  Serve gatta curry with rotis.
Thank you Kavita Durgani!!!!!

    curry looks splendid

  3. Curry looks splendid , gatta curry is one of my favourite. Since it is a rajasthani dish , i like the spicy touch to the curry .

    Red chilli thus is my obvious ingredient, as your recipe didnt use red chillies , I am curious to know how it tasted on the spice/chilli level.

    I am tempted to try this curry.
