To Make Gatta: In a bowl mix together besan, jeera, fennel seeds, salt, chilly powder, hing, coarsely crushed cloves and black peppercorns, baking soda and oil. Then add the curd and mix well.
• Next with the help of little water knead a stiff dough just like for rotis. Make sure to add water little by little so that the dough should not get extra soft.
• Now divide the dough into 6 – 7 parts. Roll each part into cylindrical tubes of ½ inch in diameter and 4 – 5 inches long.
• Boil 4 cups of water and place these rolls in it. Let it cook for 15 mins or till the rolls get cooked from inside.Cut a piece to check if they are cooked properly and evenly. Otherwise cook some more.
• Then turn off the flame and take out the rolls from the water and keep the water aside for the curry.
• Cut the rolls into 1 inch pieces.

For the gravy: Make a fine paste of ginger, green chillies, onion and garlic. Whisk the curd smooth with a beater.
• In a kadai heat the pan and put jeera. When it begins to crackle add the onion paste prepared before.
• Fry the onion paste till light brown in color. Then add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and garam masala. Fry for another 2 mins.
• Now lower the flame and slowly add the whisked curd. Stir well and continue cooking till oil separates. Stir once in a while so that the mixture does not get burnt.
• Now add the gatta water separated earlier. Bring it to a boil and then add the cut gatte pieces. Let the curry simmer for 5 – 10 more minutes on low flame. Then add the fenugreek leaves.
• Transfer the curry to a serving dish and garnish with chopped coriander.
• Serve hot with Rice or roti as you prefer.
