Gatte ki Sabzi | Gatte ki Sabzi Recipe | Besan ke Gatte ki Sabzi

Having more vegetables and salads in your daily meals is ideal.  But there can be times when these may not be available.  In such circumstances, choosing healthy alternatives is always a good practice. On one such day when your refrigerator has run out of veggies, you can opt for Gatte ki Sabzi.

Gatte ki sabzi or Besan Ke Gatte Ki Sabzi is a traditional dish from the state of Rajasthan.  It can be described as  besan sausages cooked in a gravy that is spicy and yogurt-based.  The recipe is generally made with curd as its base.

Today, we are going to learn how to make gatte ki sabzi without curd - that is in FFD style.

Recipe features

FFD has modified this recipe to make it completely vegan.  This is achieved by eliminating the milk curd from the original recipe.  Instead, we use onions and tomatoes to make the curry which is healthy for diabetics.  Its chief ingredient chana dal/besan puts it directly into a diabetes-friendly category.
