One of Mama's recipe again, she has always been cooking this and I just love them with plain rice. Thanks to Mama and Papa who took snap. I was so happy she did this and I could send this to RCI - Rajasthan hosted by Padma @ Spicy Andhra

Here goes the recipe in Mama's words:

For the Gatte's


2 cups besan(bengal gram flour)
salt to taste

1 tsp. turmeric powder
1/2 cup oil
curds to bind the dough
a pinch of ajwain (optional)

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients.
  2. Add oil and mix till it resembles bread crumbs, if needed add a little oil.
  3. Mix in curds to make a stiff dough.
  4. Knead well and rest for 10 Min's
  5. Take a little dough and roll into a thin cylinder.
  6. Meanwhile keep a pot with water on the stove.
  7. Complete the dough in this manner.
  8. Cut into small pieces about 1/2-3/4 inch.Boil some pieces in the boiling water.
  9. Do not put all the pieces as they may stick.
  10. Boil till they float in water and than take them out.
