Rajasthani Gatte Ki Sabzi

The cuisine of Rjasthan is primarily vegetarian  and offers a fabulous variety of mouthwatering dishes. Rajasthani Cuisine is one my favorite as it has a wonderful amalgamation of different spices. Rajasthanis use ghee for cooking most of the dishes. Rajasthani food is well known for its spicy curries, Gatte ki Sabji is one of the famous Rajasthani curry. There are no vegetables used, just besan (gram flour) dumplings (Gatte) that are used in its place, simmered in a curd sauce. Its tasteed just amazing.
