Paneer Gatta | How to make Paneer Gatta Sabzi

Paneer Gatta Sabji

Paneer Gatta is a twist on the popular Gatte ki Subzi from the Rajasthani Cuisines. In this gravy, paneer is added along with besan that makes it rich and extra soft. So this dal and paneer dumplings are steamed or fried and served in a yoghurt sauce.

Traditionally this gatte ki sabzi is prepared with chickpea flour, but you can use moong daal flour as well. Moong dal makes the gatta more lighter than the besan. However, I went ahead and used besan as I was trying to get the original taste in place. This surely makes a wonderful side dish with rice.

I made this subzi for my Rajasthani Thali I prepared during March. Along with Tikadiyas, this yoghurt based subzi tastes really well as with Rice. Many years ago I had made Gatte Ki Sabzi for a Rajasthani Meal, where only a handful of dishes were cooked. This time I wanted to try few more and the thali did end up being little more elaborate though no equal to the Rajasthani thali that is originally served.

We are starting the new Edition from this week. I picked ‘Pick one Protein Rich Ingredient’ for BM#88 week 1 and I will be sharing 3 different dishes with Paneer.
