Rajasthani Gatta Curry

Rajasthani Gatta Curry

Rajasthani cuisine is heavily influenced by the harsh climate and the non-availability of ingredients in the region. As Rajasthan is dry and arid state, it is difficult to grow fresh vegetables here. So most of the dishes here are prepared using grains, pulses and flours. And Rajasthani Gatta Curry is one such dish. This vegetarian curry contains gram flour (besan) dumplings (gatta) boiled in water, sliced and added to a spicy and tangy yoghurt curry.  While preparing gatta, it should be kept in mind that the dough should not be very soft and gattas should be added to the water only after it starts boiling. Once they start to float on top, it means that they are done. Reserve the leftover water in which gattas are boiled as it is used for curry. Curd based curry prepared and a good amount of spices are used for authentic flavor. Boiled Gattas can be preserved also for couple of days and can be used with fresh curry. These gattas are so fabulous that they can even be had on their own, without the curry. Rajasthani Gatta Curry goes well with rotis and parathas.
