The very favorite among Rajasthani people, Gatte Ki Sabji has now become one of my favorite dishes. I tasted it several times in restaurants but the way it taste when I prepared in an authentic Rajasthani style following the below link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orN-iPAgOMM&t=62 it was pure divine. Made with simple ingredients like gram flour, curd and other usual kitchen spices, Gatte Ki Sabji tastes tangy and spicy, making you crave for more and more. It needs a good amount of Ghee, not appropriate for diet but once in a while, it is really worth having this flavor-full and mouthwatering dish.
