Dal Bati Churma Recipe

Rajasthani Style Dal Dati Churma | Dal Baati Churma

Dal Bati Churma is a veteran & a very delicious Indian dish. It is mostly prepared in the Western/Northern Region of India. It is a traditional Rajasthani dish.
It is generally served in marriages and festivals as a special dish. It is a mouth-watering dish. It can be eaten at lunch or dinner.

This dish is a mixture of three recipes i.e. mixed Dal, baked wheat balls(Bati), and powdered wheat balls(Churma). Chana, urad, and chilka moong dal are used for the preparation of Dal in this recipe.

Bati can be prepared using an oven, cooker, or appe pan. Generally, bati is prepared in an oven which is a traditional method but I am introducing the preparation of bati with Appe pan. In appe pan, baati is prepared within 15 minutes which saves our precious time and labor.

Bati can be served with dal, kadhi, besan gatta, or vegetables. To enhance its taste, we can serve bati with mirchi kuta(fried green chili with spices) and green chutney of coriander and mint leaves.

Rajasthani Bati | Baati Recipe

Generally, coarse wheat flour is used for bati, but you can mix sooji(semolina) in fine wheat flour for the preparation of bati if you do not have coarse wheat flour.
To make bati crispy, we have to mix masalas, moyan(adding melted ghee in flour), and besan in wheat flour.
Bati is dipped in ghee after baking to make it blossom. Ghee enhances the flavor and taste of bati.
