    Methi Gatte Ki Sabzi Recipe: How To Prepare Rajasthani Dana Methi And Gatte Ki Sabzi

    Posted By: Ajitha Ghorpade
    |

    Methi gatte ki sabzi is a traditional North Indian dish, which hails from the state of Rajasthan. It is served as a side dish usually with rotis and rice and as a main course for lunch or dinner. There are many variations to this dish, especially in the Northern part of India. In this recipe, we boil the gatte instead of frying without adding any vegetables to the gravy.

    It is an easy dish to make if a little amount of patience is acquired. The dish comes together only when the gatte and gravy are mixed well under the same lid. It is usually made with methi and besan as the main ingredients. The dough of besan is equally divided and made into cylindrical gattes. These gattes can either be boiled or fried according to the diet plans one has.

    The soft gattes along with the silky gravy makes for a scrumptious spicy dish and tastes best when hot.

    So, if you would like to savour this dish, watch the video below and follow the step-by-step procedure having images.
