To prepare the gattas: Dry roast the zeera and then grind it in a mortar and pestle.
In a bowl, mix the besan, spices and zeera together to make the mixture for the gattas.
To this, add ginger and mint leaves.
Add about 1 and 1/2 tbsp of curd into the besan mixture along with the soda.
Start to knead it like a dough. Add more curd if its too dry. Be careful not to add too much.
Add a couple of drops of oil to make it easier to handle.
Once you get the dough to a good consistency where it can be easily handled, you can now just divide it and roll them out into long thin strips.
Now boil these rounded strips in some water in a pan.
They will be very delicate so handle them with extreme care. Once done take them out.
Now, cut the long strips into smaller pieces and deep fry these pieces. You can shape the gattas as you like.
Once they are nice and golden brown take them out and now prepare the base of this curry. Do not throw away the oil.
To prepare the base:
In a pan, add 1 tbsp of the oil in which the gattas were fried. Add to that 1 tbsp of ghee.
Add the chillies and zeera to the oil and let it brown. Now add the onions and saute.
Add the cloves, cassia, and garlic. Saute well.
Next, add the powdered spices like turmeric, coriander powder, heeng, red chilli powder. Toast the spices and add a pinch of salt.
Now, add some water to de-glaze the pan and lift the spices.
Use the curd that was left earlier from the gattas and add it to this masala. Add it little by little. Add green chilli.
Mix all the curd well with masalas. Once you see the oil coming up to the surface, add the gattas.
Mix well. Add the coriander leaves. Let it simmer for about 5-7 minutes for the flavors to concentrate. Serve hot and enjoy!
