    For the gattas

    1. Combine all the ingredients for the gattas. Knead into a firm dough using 1 to 2 tablespoons of water.
    2. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a 75 mm. (3") long cylindrical roll.
    3. Boil plenty of water in a pan and cook the gattas in boiling water for 7 to 8 minutes till they float on top. Drain and keep aside.
    4. Cut the gattas into 12 mm. (½") long pieces. Keep aside.

    For the kadhi

    1. Combine the beaten curds, gram flour, ½ cup of water and curry leaves and mix well so that no lumps remain.
    2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds, mustard seeds, fennel seeds, asafoetida, bay leaf, clove, cinnamon and cardamom.
    3. When the seeds crackle, add the turmeric powder, chilli powder and coriander powder and sauté for a few seconds.
    4. Add the curd mixture, 1 cup of water and salt and bring to a boil while stirring continuously, so that the kadhi does not split. Simmer for about 10 minutes and keep aside.

    How to proceed

    1. Add the prepared gattas to the kadhi and bring to a boil.
    2. Serve hot, garnish with the coriander.

    i like all the recipies. But please add a measurement like international cooks. When is 1tbsp it can be australian 20 ml spoon or amercian 15 ml or british 18ml. Also when you say a cup please mention 250 ml cup or 220 ml cup. This is necessary for new cooks. Also , for e.g. if I add some extra ml of baking powder for a cake it goes haywire. Hence requesting you to standardize the measurements
