  5. Now when done take a batti in a kitchen towel and press lightly in between your palms to break it a bit and then soak in to melted warm ghee.

Churma
  1. The traditional way to prepare churma is to make small balls of baati dough, deep fry them, break them and then mix with sugar and nuts. But here i have an easy less oily method... hope you like it.

  3. Take in bowl, add few more nuts (if you want) and serve.

Recipe Notes
  • You may make any type of daal with baati, it depends on personal liking, like mix daal, panchmale daal, toor daal, urad daal etc.
  • To serve with baati, daal should be of pouring consistency.
  • You may temper daal with red chili fried in ghee.
  • For baati do not overknead the dough otherwise baati will be hard, dough should be kneaded to just combine.
  • Do not work too much while rolling balls of dough. just pinch the dough and give a shape of ball.
  • Traditionally we have baati oven seperately but here we can bake in usual oven also at 180°C for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown in color.
  • Break slightly and keep them soaked in warm melted ghee for atleast 2-3 minutes for better taste.
  • You may bake baati in batches of use. Because it taste yummy when its hot.
  • The traditional way to prepare churma is to make small balls of baati dough, deep fry them, break them and then mix with sugar and nuts. But here i use an easy less oily method... hope you like it, otherwise you may make it traditionally as well.
