Our Review Factors
Convenience, taste, and texture were the primary review factors.
How did Being Baniya fare here?
Gatte typically have a bean-dominant flavor, owing to the fact they’re made with chickpea flour. In addition to this, these are seasoned with Rajasthani spices like coriander, red chilli, kasoori methi, among others. We checked the freshness and how prominent the flavor of spices was.
A soft but firm bite, easy to chew but retains its shape- this it the characteristic texture of this delicacy. How close did Being Bania Gatte come to this? Do these feel dry?
The roasting, grinding, shaping, boiling processes are eliminated with this mix. But is it truly convenient?

The breakdown of which Rajasthani spices are used has not been given.
How we made them
Following the instructions on the pack, we boiled some water, soaked the besan gatta in it for approximately 15-20 minutes. While this was soaking, we started the onion-tomato gravy. Once ready, the gatta was taken out of the water and added to the gravy.
Aroma + Appearance
These were cylindrical rounds that had a deep brown appearance. We could see some coriander seeds and kasoori methi, as mentioned in the ingredient list. There was no rancid or industrial smell, thumbs up.
Taste + Texture
In the dry stage, the gatte had a minimal spice level. Once soaked in the gravy, they swelled up, and turned slightly soft. That said, the center was still hard, the outside had softened a bit. We’d recommend some extra soaking and simmering in the gravy to enhance the bite.
We were delighted by the taste. Like most Rajasthani thalis we have had over the decades, the gattas taste as fresh and flavorful. Pair them with bajra rotis and ghee.
- Very convenient
- Clean ingredients
- No additives
- No stale aroma/taste
- Needs to be soaked for a bit longer as the centre takes much longer to soften.
