Gatte ki sabji is one of the most popular recipes with many variants. This can also be prepared with onion and tomato based gravy as in Punjab Cuisines. But in Rajasthani Cuisine they have two variants one is without onion and garlic and other version is with onion and garlic. As it is a curd based gravy , if onion and garlic are not added then it tastes very similar to gatte ki kadhi. I love this recipe with Onion and Garlic in it . Also try use homemade full fat thick curd to make this recipe if curd is not thick then there are chances of splitting when added to the curry.

In this recipe , I have used Onion and Garlic with some whole spices which imparts a aromatic fragrance to the curry. While making gatte ki sabji recipe , the most important element is to cook gatte perfectly .Cooked Gatte should be soft and not dense.Do follow this recipe for right measurements and cooking directions to get perfectly cooked gatte. With perfectly cooked gatte making curry is lot more easier. If you try this recipe do Comment , tag me on Facebook or Instagram , I would love to hear from you guys šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚
