Small Balls of Wheat Flour baked in Tandoor called BAATI. Its very famous and favourite in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. Baati will be served with Dal, lots of Ghee and Chutney.  It tastes best even with Ghee and Grated Jaggery.

Baati is hard from outside and soft from inside. The traditional way to eat Baati is ,  Crumble Baati, Add Ghee and Dal, Mix with Chutney and Enjoy 🙂 🙂 No doubt Ghee can be Minimize or ignored also as far as Calories are concerned 😉 😉

My family loves this Rajasthani food with Dal, Chutney , Onion and a Dry Vegetable like Potato vegetable or Thin Beans Vegetable.  Earlier on blog, i already posted the recipe for Dal and Garlic Chutney which can be used with Baati, I made this Baati in Gas Tandoor. One can make it without Tandoor or even in Microwave. Details for this are given below.

Making Baati is very easy. Main Ingredient is Wheat flour. Add Another few ingredients, bake till brown the outer layer… Break Baati slightly, pour Ghee in that and Baati is ready to serve 🙂

So lets checkout the whole Process..

INGREDIENTS:

  • 5 cup Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 cup Rawa
  • 1/2 tsp Cooking / Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Curd (Not Sour)
  • 1/4 cup Oil
  • Salt

METHOD:

Mix all The ingredients nicely and Knead a Soft dough. Dough should be that much soft that when you make balls from it, there should not be any crack on surface. Grease your hands with oil and knead the dough for a minute. Allow it to rest for 15-20 mins .

Baati is ready to place in Tandoor. For that Grease the Tandoor plate, arrange Balls batchwise. At a time generally 8-10 balls can be placed, it depends of size of tandoor. Cover the lid and Bake on Medium Low flame. Keep turning the side after every 5-7 minutes.

Don’t get afraid of some cracks on surface while baking, it make sure Baati is nicely cooked from inside .

Take a Kitchen Napkin, place hot baati on it and slighly press from sides in your palm. It will get a big crack in center.. Fill this crack with Ghee..

Serve Baati with hot Dal and Chutney. Onions can be best accompanier.

For the friends who wants to bake in Microwave , bake in convection mode. Initially on 200C for 8-10 mins then on 180C for 3-5 mins. Keep Checking in between as time duration may be vary .

If No Tandoor No Oven then also its very easy to make Baati , One can make in Kadai/wok. Take a Heavy bottomed Kadai, Place strainer on that. Grease the strainer with little oil. Place dough balls on it , cover the lid and allow it to cook till the desired colour. Keep changing the sides for even cooking. One can also make in Appam Pan. 🙂 🙂 So there are so many ways friends to Make Baati, so now no excuseFATAFAT BANAO AND PLEASE SHARE  THE FEEDBACK WITH ME 🙂 🙂

Hope you all will Enjoy this Delicious Rajasthani Food.

Happy Cooking 🙂 🙂
