Chawal Ka Gatta & MEME

Chawal Ka Gatta & MEME

I have made chawal ka gatta after very long time. As there was left over rice I thought of making chawal ki roti but I was not really in a mood to make rotis, then the thought stuck my mind why not make gatta but I had my reservation, I was thinking whether Kedar and BIL will like this but then I decided if they don't like there is instant roti :-). Once the gatta got boiled Kedar gave me a looks and said I'm not going to eat this. I asked him to try it and if he doesn't like then I will make something else (kya kya karna padta hai!) after lot of sweet talking he did try and loved it I guess, that's why he ate heartily chawal ka gatta! In fact everyone did liked it...so don't worry go ahead and try this recipe :-)
This gatta makes a good breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack item & can be server with pickle, tea, any sabji or chutney.
For Ingredients refer chawal ki roti recipe, it's the same ingredients additional things required are:

Semolina/Sojji/Rava - 2-3 tbs
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tps
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tps
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves chopped - 2-3 tbs
Green chill chopped - 4-5 (according to taste)
Oil - 3-4 tbs
Water - 4 cups for boiling

Method:

1. Mix all the ingredients (as per chawal ki roti exclude oil and water), Semolina. Add water only if required to make hard dough. I have added 2-3tbs of water.

2. Make medium size balls of dough and roll them between palms to make sausage kind of shape.
3. Boil these rolls in hot water for 20-25mins until it's gets cooked nicely.

4.Use a knife to test. Once done, nice aroma will start coming.
5. Drain the water and cut the rolls in to small pieces.

6. In a pan heat oil, add cumin, mustard seeds, greenchilli, curry leaves. Add the boiled gatta and mix well. Sauté for 8-10mins until gatta pieces turns in the brown colour, garnish with chopped coriander leaves
7. Chawal Ka Gatta is ready.

8. Server with mint chutney (will post chutney recipe later).
