Instructions
 

For the Baati

  • Mix all the ingredients, namely flour, sooji, besan, baking powder, melted ghee, salt, ajwain and knead it well into a firm dough using milk. Keep it aside for 10-15 mins.
  • Take medium lemon-sized dough and make a round shaped ball. Flatten the rounds and make a small indentation in the centre of the baatis using your thumb.
  • If it has some cracks, don't worry as those cracks will help the baatis to cook properly. Keep it covered with a muslin cloth or a kitchen towel.
  • Prepare the barbeque apparatus before you start grilling baatis. There are various medium with which you can create fire in BBQ. Our option is always using charcoal as it is easy to ignite the fire and maintain the required heat.
  • Fill the bottom space of the apparatus with charcoal and ignite fire using paper. Baatis require low to medium heat to get cooked evenly. So wait for 2 or 3 mins to bring down the heat.
  • Arrange the baatis on the grilling tray and keep it over the medium rack. Brush the baatis with any cooking medium once or twice. When it turns golden in colour, remove the baatis from the rack and let it cool.

Notes

You can also steam the baatis slightly and deep fry them in low heat. Deep fried baatis has more shelf life than baked or grilled baatis. 2. In mixed dal, you can add tomatoes instead of amchur powder to get tanginess and nice colour in the dal. 3. As baati and churma have long shelf life, they can be prepared in large batches and used along with other Rajasthani food variations.
