What is dal baati?

Dal Baati Recipe is an Indian dish comprising of dal (lentils) and baati (hard wheat rolls). Baati is a whole wheat roundel with flavors of clarified butter (ghee), carom seeds (ajwain) and fennel seeds (saunf) cooked, bathed in ghee and served with dal, making a delicious meal. Dal… a combination of dals(lentils)cooked and tempered with spices along with onion, ginger garlic, and tomato.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Dal Baati Recipe

Baati recipe calls for ghee and lukewarm milk. I would always use water to knead the dough for baati. But ever since I used milk to make the dough for Aloo Frankie, I was happy with the texture I got. So I decided to try using milk for baati also and it did wonders. I flavored the baatis with ajwain, saunf, and sabut dhaniya.

Dals… I have used a chana, black urad, moong, and masoor dals. And dal combination might vary as per your choice. I don’t add arhar dal because I don’t like it. But you may add that too. In this Dal Baati Recipe, I have tempered the dal with onion, ginger, garlic, and tomatoes. You can omit the onion garlic. Easily customize the tempering as per your choice keeping it limited to some simple spicesDal Baati Recipe

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
