Gatte ki Kadhi | Rajasthani Dahi Wali Gatte ki Sabzi

Last month I spent over a week in Rajasthan. I was in and around Udaipur, and had the time of my life. While I was there I had a version of Gatte ki Sabzi cooked largely in an onion-tomato gravy and I had posted that recipe last week.

However, I have always eaten Gatte ki Sabzi that was made in a yogurt gravy and that is what I am presenting today. This version is easier to make as it involves lesser cooking time but is just as delicious.

I also find this Gatte ki Kadhi version of the curry lighter on the stomach, and given that all the vegetable I really need is an onion, it is perfect for those days when you do not have vegetables at home or are not in a mood to eat them!

Another dry curry that needs no other vegetable apart from an onion is the Andhra Patholi.

There are many versions of Rajasthani Gatte ki Sabzi. This version is made like a Kadhi; that is, it is cooked in a Yogurt gravy. It is much lighter on the stomach than the version that uses the Onion-Tomato gravy.

Instructions
Making the Gatta
  1. Sieve the besan, if required.
  2. Heat 1 tsp oil and add the Ajwain to it.
  3. Add the red chilli powder, turmeric, salt, yogurt and warm oil with Ajwain to the besan.
  4. Mix well.
  5. If the dough is a bit dry, add a little lukewarm water to make a firm but pliable dough.
  6. Cover the dough and set aside for 10 minutes.
  7. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts.
  8. Roll each part into a cylinder about 1/2? in thickness.
  9. In a large vessel, boil 5-6 cups of water with about 1/2 tsp salt.
  10. When the water starts boiling, add the Gatta rolls to the water.
  11. Boil the rolls for about 5-7 minutes till they start to rise to the surface and change colour to a paler yellow. Be careful at this stage; cooking the rolls for too long will make the gatta hard.
  12. Turn off the heat.
  13. Save about 1/2 cup of water in which the gatta rolls were cooked.
  14. Drain the rest of the water from the gatta rolls.
  15. Let the boiled gatta rolls cool for about 10 minutes.
  16. Cut the rolls into 3/4? pieces and set aside.
Making the Dahi Wali Gatte ki Sabzi | Gatta Kadhi
  1. Beat the Dahi (Yogurt) till it is smooth.
  2. In a kadai, heat the oil.
  3. Add the cumin seeds and asafoetida.
  4. Stir-fry till the cumin just starts to change colour.
  5. Add the onion and 1/4 tsp salt.
  6. Stir-fry till the onion turns light brown.
  7. Add the ginger, garlic and green chillies.
  8. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes till the raw smell of the ginger and garlic disappears.
  9. Add the red chilli powder, turmeric, coriander powder, and salt.
  10. Mix well.
  11. Add the Gatte and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes.
  12. Add 1/4 cup of the water in which the Gatte were cooked.
  13. Turn the heat down to low.
  14. Add the beaten yogurt and immediately mix well.
  15. Over low heat, let the gravy cook and thicken. If needed, add the rest of the reserved water.
  16. Turn off the heat.
  17. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
Recipe Notes
  • Be sure to cook the Kadhi/Yogurt gravy, on low heat. The yogurt curdles on high heat.
  • If you fear that the yogurt will curdle, mix about 1/2 tsp besan in some water and add it to the beaten yogurt.
  • For a detailed step-by-step tutorial with photos for the process to make gattas, refer the recipe for Rajasthani Gatte ki Subzi | Gatta Curry with Onion Tomato Gravy.
