This Chakki Ki Sabzi, made from whole wheat dumplings in a tangy sauce is a meal by itself.  Apart from being a meal, this spicy and tangy sabzi also goes well with rice.

Love this Chakki Ki Sabzi from Madhya Pradesh, it is made from whole wheat flour and is very similar to gatte ki sabzi for Rajasthan.

This month, us bloggers from  Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge traveled to the land known as the “heart of India” also known as Madhya Pradesh.

Here are some of the famous things to see in Madhya Pradesh

  1. Sculptures of Khajuraho
  2. Wildlife at Bandhavgarh
  3. Kanha National park
  4. Temples at Ujjain
  5. The historical city of Gwalior
  6. Buddhist stupas at Sanchi

Apart from the historical sites and national parks, Madhya Pradesh is also known for vegetarian food such as poha, bhutta ka khees, palak pooris, malpua and mawa bati.

This month my partner Shobaji from Shobasfoodmazaa gave me two very simple ingredients to use and make a dish representing Madhya Pradesh. She gave me whole wheat flour and cumin seeds. The obvious thing for me to make was Chakki Ki Sabzi.

A few things to know about this recipe:

  1. The chakki / whole wheat flour dough used in this recipe is first steamed, then fried and then in gravy.
  2. Make nice and small pieces of the dough ( once it is steamed it does become big).

3. It is time time consuming to make this sabzi, but it is absolutely delicious.

4. Don’t go overboard with the spices, subtle flavours make this sabzi delicious.

This recipe is similar to Gatte ki Sabzi which is a popular recipe from Rajasthan. Here whole wheat flour is used instead of gram flour (besan). The main difference is seen in the way that the Gatte and chakki are cooked. Gatte are cooked like a pasta in boiling water whereas chakki cubes are steamed, fried and then added to gravy.

It is time time consuming to make this sabzi, but it is absolutely delicious.

Some of the other recipes using whole wheat flour / atta ingredients are:

  1. Mattar ke parathe
  2. Instant healthy dosa
  3. Sattu ka paratha
  4. Burger Buns

Amazing sabji. Similar to gatte and yet so different. Definitely going to try this delicious looking preparation. A wonderful share for the theme Priya. Today my neighbor sent something similar and when I asked her if it is chakki sabji she said no its besan sabji. They cook the paste, spread on a tray or thali, let it set and then cut into pieces and make a sabji. Didn’t know so many variations exist.

This is a great looking dish, and the recipe makes it something I can attempt. I am embarrassed that in spite of travelling all over India and trying out local food, there are still so many I had not heard of, the chakki ki subzi being one of these. Need to try out more new items like this one!
