Gatte Ki Kadhi

Gatte ki Kadhi is a Rajasthani Dish. I had this at my friend's place for first time and instantly loved it. My husband is big fan of gatte ki kadhi, he never gets tired eating it. This recipe calls for buttermilk, I made buttermilk at home by mixing yogurt and water used for boiling gatte together.  Buttermilk that we get here in US is thick, so if you are using it make sure you add lots of water to make it thin.


For Gatte

1 1/2 Cup Chickpea Flour
4 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp Chili powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/3 Cup luke warm water

For Kadhi

4 Cups Buttermilk
1 tbsp Chickpea flour
Salt as per taste
Chopped Coriander for garnish

For tempering

2-3 tbsp oil
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 Green Chilies
Curry Leaves


For gatte, heat oil until smoking hot. Mix together Chickpea flour, oil, chili powder, salt. Pour water and knead it into a medium soft dough. Roll it on a flat surface like cutting board to make cylindrical shape.

 Add these gatte into salted boiling water and let them boil for 10-12 min.


They will start floating when done.  Let them cool and then cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Keep aside.

Meanwhile mix buttermilk and 1 tbsp of Chickpea flour. Heat oil, add mustard and cumin seeds, once they crackle add Asafoetida and Turmeric following by chilies, curry leaves and chili powder. By adding chili powder in tempering, will give nice color to your kadhi. Then add the prepared buttermilk. Once it starts boiling add gatte and let it boil for 10-12 minutes. Turn of the heat and garnish with chopped coriander.

Your gatte ki kadhi is ready.
