Gatte ke sabzi recipe (A rajasthani delight)

When I was kid , this was one of the recipe I always disliked. After getting married I noticed that Rajasthani cusine is my hubby's weakness . So, started the gatte sabzi trial sessions n now I consider myself really good in preparing this curry.

So, here is the recipe .

besan (gram flour) 1 cup
yogurt 1/4 cup
Onion (big )1
green chilly 3
garlic (1 -2 flakes)
Oil 3 tsp

turmeric powder 3/4 spoon
chilly powder 1/2 spoon
coriander powder 1 1/2tsp
garam masala(optional)1/4 tsp

take besan in a bowl , add just a liitle turmeric , chilly powder and salt to it(pinch or two of each ), add 1/2 tsp of oil and knead it in stiff dough (use water if reqd). keep it aside .
grate ginger and garlic n onion and green chillies .(I use blender for onion n grater for ginger , garlic)
Put 3 glasses of water to boil on high heat and i n the mean time make 3-4 long strips of dough .Don't make the strips two thin .
Put these strips in boiled water , cover the vessel and keep it on high heat for 15-20 min.
(I usually pressure cook them for 2 whistles and let the cooker cool down)Don't throw the water .
Take oil in pan (high heat), add mustard and jeera , pinch of hing (optional ), add ginger and garlic fry for 30 sec and then add onion paste. fry till onion leave oil.turn the gas on med heat Now add yoghurt give a stir , in 2-3 min oil ll start separating .
Add dry masala except garam masala , cook till it becomes like gravy .(I keep putting a few drops of water in few seconds to make it thicker of gravy consistency).
Cut the strips into 1/2 inch size by using knife .put them in the gravy also add the boiled water Let them simmer for 20 min on medium heat . keep checking(u can also add more water if u want )
Add salt and garam masala.

You can serve it with fulka or rice.
