Gatte ki kadhi

Hi Readers,

I am back again with more recipes from my kitchen. My dad was here, and I just gave all my time to him. I was literally away from all sorts of social sites, just checked and did my office work. Now, that he returned back, .I am back to my normal schedule. Well, in the meanwhile I had been trying new recipes, I have taken pictures but yes sis not get time to blog.

Today, I will start with a Rajasthani dish, Gatte ki Kadhi. Kadhi is made in same way as I had described in Dahi Kadhi Pakora. Kadhi is a thick gravy made by blending gram flour with curd and simmering it gently. Here, I have added Besan Gatte one of the Rajasthani food, that is made of gram flour dough.

Ingredients :- 
Gatte :- 
1 1/2 cup gram flour(besan) 
1 tbsp curd
a pinch of baking soda
3/4 tbsp carom seeds(ajwain)
3/4 tbsp coriander seeds( dhania)
1 tbsp anardana
2 tbsp oil
1 green chilli chopped
1 tbsp green coriander finely chopped
1 tbsp salt to taste

Kadhi :- 
2 cups curd
2 tbsp gram flour(besan)
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp mustard seeds
1/2 tbsp fennel
a pich asafoetida
5 to 6 Curry leaves
1 tbsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp red chili powder
1 tbsp coriander powder
salt to taste
2 tbsp oil

Method :- 
Mix all ingredients for gatte together and knead a hard dough using about 4 to 5 tbsp water. Shape the dough into long cylinders. Boil water in a thick bottpmed vessel. When water starts to boil, add gatte cylinders and boil till they turn yellowish white. Remove and keep them aside. Cut them into 1 inch long pieces. For Kadhi mix the curd and besan. Add turmeric and salt. Simmer this and keep stirring so that curd does not separate water. When this liquid thickens and starts boiling add the Gatte pieces. Now, in a tampering vessel, take 2 tbsp oil and heat it. When its sufficiently hot, add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, fennel and wait till it starts to splutter. Add asafoetida, curry leaves , red chili and remove from heat. Add this tampering mixture to Kadhi and serve with rice or roti.  


  1. you can make this with lentils (toor dal) instead of gram flour and chick peas, both ingredients my husband is allergic to, taste so delicious.

  2. Nice suggestion will try the same with toor dal sometime.. :)
