Notes

Don't fry the gatte too crisp and roll the dough evenly so that you get evenly cooked gatte's. The water for boiling the gattes should be bubbling when you add them. When boiling rice add little oil so that the rice doesn't stick. If you want it to be spicy add up the chilliness as per your need. The dough you are making should be nice and stiff which makes perfect gatte's. I have powdered cumin,cinnamon and cloves according to my family need you can add it without grinding. Coriander seeds should not be finely powdered,should be ground roughly.
