Being born in Rajasthan always influences me toward its food and culture and why not. I have spent almost 20 years there. But being traveled to different regions of the country also influence me toward its taste and attracts my appetite towards it. I am bringing to you all, this soothing and delicious version of Dal Baati which is Dal Bafla. While Bati is baked Bafla is basically boiled and then baked or fried in butter. This crispy and tasty 😋 Bati is served with Lentil soup 🍲 (Toor Dal). You can enjoy this recipe with hot Dal and Mirch Kutta. So let’s jump right into the recipe first.
- 2 cups wheat flour
- 1/2 cup semolina
- 1/4 cup curd
- Salt to taste
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 tsp carom seeds
- 3 tbsp oil
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- Warm water to knead the dough
- Ghee/Butter to fry Bafla
- Mix all the ingredients together and knead the dough with warm water. The dough should be smooth. Now cover and let it rest for about 15 min.
- Meanwhile, take a big saucepan and fill 3/4 of it with water. Cover and let this come to a boil.
- When the water starts boiling take off the cover and side by side divide the dough in equal sizes and shape it around between your palms. Flatten it a little.
- Add it to the water by one at a time and let the water comes to the boil again.
- Turn the flame to medium and cover and cook for about 15 mins.
- When Bafla floats on the top and you see the cracks on Bafla it’s actually good and it’s cooked. To check perfectly insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean it’s done.
- Now take out the Bafla and let it cool down. Either you can shallow fry them or deep fry them. It’s up to you. If you shallow fry cover and let it cook to get golden brown and crisp.
- When done, pour butter on top and serve hot with Dal.
