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.
