Instant Gatte Kadhi: No Onion Recipe



gatte kadhi
If you love gatte, you have always tried these savory snacks with gram flour (besan). In continuation of my experimentation spree, I went ahead and tried gatte with a blend of besan, suji (semolina), and oats.

This no onion recipe post is inspired by Ritu Mendiratta's Dahi wale gatte.

I have used chana sattu (roasted bengal gram) in place of besan or chickpea flour. This is the yummiest ever gatte ki sabzi - do give it a try.




Ingredients for OPOS dahi gatte ki sabzi

For Gatte
1 cup- sattu
1 tsp- oil
coriander powder- 1tsp
1/2tsp- Red chilly powder
1tsp Curd
Salt, Ajwain (carom seeds), jeera (cumin seeds)
 Haldi - 1 pinch

Water 1 cup + 2 cups
Haldi -1 pinch
Red chilly powder 1 tsp
Salt , coriander powder

For tadka
Dried Red chilly 1
curry leaves a few
Hing 1/2 tsp
1 tsp- ginger garlic paste
1 tsp-oil

Let's make gatte first:

Mix all the ingredients listed first under gatte.
If you need little water, add 1/2-1 tsp of water to make dough.
Roll into dough logs (cylindrical).
Take a  2 or 3-liter pressure cooker.
Add 2 cups water to it. Add salt and little oil.
Drop in rolled logs of gatte.
Pressure cook for 4 whistles.
Allow pressure to settle.
Take out the gatte logs and cut them into small pieces.
Keep this water for gravy.

Let's prepare gravy.
Add the gatte water and curd to a vessel.
Whisk all other ingredients listed under gravy.
Take a 3-liter pressure cooker.
Add oil.
Drop dry red chilly, garlic ginger paste, curry leaves, and hing.
Place gatte on top of this masala.
Add the remaining whisked ingredients along with salt and turmeric.

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk.
