Dal-Baati recipe
Dal-Baati

Dal-Baati is a Rajasthani, Indian food. Spicy Dal and freshly made hot Baatis with ghee is a perfect combination of Rajasthani meal. Rajasthan is famous for their regal caterer and their culture.

Dal is prepared with Moong dal (Split green gram), Chana dal (split Bengal gram), Urad dal (split black lentils), Tuvar dal (Arhar) and Baati is prepared with wheat flour. In this recipe, I will tell you the exact Rajasthani recipe how they prepared in Rajasthan.

In the restaurant, if you will order this dish they will give you Baati immersed in oil. But if you are making in the home with ghee instead of oil. This will give you perfect Rajasthani taste. Which you will never get in the restaurant.  A better way to make it in a home in Rajasthani way with ghee.
