For Baati –

  • Mix whole wheat flour, semolina, ghee and salt in a large bowl.
  • Gradually add water and mix the mixture well. The dough should not be soft and should be hard. Cover it with a damp cloth and leave it for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the stuffing (if using) by mixing the roasted gram flour, ghee, red chilli powder, cumin seeds, celery and salt in a bowl.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Divide the dough into small pieces of equal size, then flatten each piece into a disc. If using filling, add some filling to the center of each disk and bring the edges together to seal.
  • Place the batis with or without filling on the baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • When the batis are ready, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly.

For Dal –

  • Soak all the pulses in water for about thirty minutes.
  • Add three to four cups of water, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, salt and pulses in a pressure cooker.
  • Pressure cook the dal until it becomes soft or for 3-4 whistles.
  • Heat ghee in a separate pan. Then add dry red chilli, minced garlic, minced ginger, chopped onion and cumin. Fry until golden brown.
  • Add green chillies and chopped tomatoes. Cook until tomatoes become soft and oil separates from the spices.
  • Cook this tomato-onion masala on low flame for about a tenth of a minute. If necessary, change the consistency by adding water.
  • Let the dal boil for a few more minutes, then add the garam masala.
