Bengal gram is abundantly used in Rajasthani cooking because it grows in plenty in the arid desert conditions. Besan made from Bengal gram is used to make rotis, gatta, mithai and also as a thickening agent for kadhi .
Gatte ka Pulao is made on festive occasions when plain steamed rice is not served. As vegetables are not available throughout the year, cooked gattas are added to spice up this pulao, which is usually served with kadhi or plain curds .
- Combine all the ingredients for the gattas in a deep bowl and knead into a stiff dough using 2 tbsp of water.
- Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a 200 mm. (8") long thin cylindrical roll.
- Cut the gattas into 10 to 12 equal pieces and keep aside.
- Boil plenty of water in a deep non-stick pan and cook the gattas in boiling water for 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai, deep-fry the gatta pieces till they turn light brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the cardamom, cloves, cumin seeds, mustard seeds and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds.
