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 .

Awesome recipe! Had to modify the quantity of gram flour as it was very less as mentioned in the recipe.
