Rajasthani Gatte ki Sabji

Gatte ki sabji is originated from Rajasthan.  The Gatte are the gram flour dumplings which are put in the curd based gravy. Traditionally, they never add any vegetables on this sabji because Rajasthan is a state of the desert where there is always a shortage of vegetables. The scarcity of vegetables leads them to discover the mouth-watering cuisine which is so popular in all the other states also.  Ingredients: For Gatte: 1 cup gram flour (besan)1/2 tsp red chili powder1/2 tsp turmeric powdersalt to taste2 tsp curd (dahi)1/2 tsp ajwain

Bread halwa

Image
is very popular and takes few ingredients.It is so versatile in character that you can use it in many ways to create divine dishes. This is a European-Indian sweet dish. In my opinion, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Bread Halwa is the Indian take on the English classic – Bread pudding. The texture is almost similar, warm and gooey, comes loaded with sweetness, doused in desi ghee, much like butter which makes it like a pudding. If you have a sweet tooth, then you will love this Halwa, more so because it is ridiculously easy to make, taking just about 10 minutes. What I am trying here is to make the maximum with the minimums. Hope, You enjoy this super easy and fast recipe.
Ingredients: 3 slices of bread4 spoons of sugar2 tables spoon ghee
Directions: Blend the bread into small pieces.Heat ghee in the pan.Add bread piece and roast it till it turns golden brown.Add sugar then add water and stir it continuously till it becomes little dry.Halwa is ready.Notes: You can also add milk instead of w…
