Dahi Ke Gatte

Dahi Ke Gatte

Belonging to the northern part of India, we were always close to Rajasthan and I have always admired the Rajasthani people, its culture and of course, its cuisines. Talking about Rajasthani cuisines, they have a unique delectable taste that make you keep longing for more and more. Gatte ki sabzi is one dish from the royal state of Rajasthan, that is been prepared at my home since I was a child and that I always love to relish. However, today I made something slightly different out of the usual Gatte ki Sabzi with dahi (curd) and called it Dahi Ke Gatte. The taste was as expected – just irresistible and it went well with plain home made hot chapatis. I am very sure you too would fall in love with this great curry from Rajasthan, so use this simple recipe to make Dahi Ke Gatte.
