How to make Rajasthani Daal Bati Churma

  1. To make Churma:
  2. In a mixing bowl take wheat flour, semolina and ghee, add water to form a stiff dough.Make patties with your palms with an indentation at the center.
  3. Heat ghee (you can use oil too) and deep fry the patties in hot oil till golden brown.Turn over and cook for even cooking, cook in low medium flame.
  4. Drain in tissue paper and set aside to cool down.
  5. Once it is completely cool, break them into small pieces and grind it using a mixer.Grind it a little coarse.
  6. Collect the mixture in a bowl, add castor sugar and mix well.
  7. Add almonds, pistachios along with ghee and give a quick mix.
  8. Your yummy sweet churma is ready.
  9. To make daal -
  10. Rinse the daals well and pressure cook for 5 whistles along with a pinch of turmeric powder,salt and 3 cups of water.
  11. Once pressure releases, mash it well with a laddle and set aside.
  12. In a pan heat ghee, add the items listed under for tempering and let it splutter.
  13. Then add tomatoes along with red chilli,turmeric,coriander and garam masala along with salt and saute for few mins until raw smell of tomatoes leave!
  14. Now add mashed dal and mix well.Let the dal boil for 5 mins, add little water if its too thick.
  15. Finally garnish with coriander leaves.
  16. To make Baati -
  17. In a mixing bowl, take all the ingredients listed under 'BATI', mix well and knead it together to form a stiff dough.
  18. Divide the dough into small balls and flatten them using your palms.
  19. Make a small indentation in the centre of the baatis using your thumb.
  20. Now boil them into water until they comes up once they are totally boiled! And let them cool completely.
  21. Then take a wok, put the ghee to deep fry the baatis until they become golden brown and drain then into tissue paper. (You could also arrange them into microwave are 180 degrees for 20-25 mins to bake, but I personally prefer deep frying to make it more traditional)
  22. So your delicious treat is ready. Serve it with papad chura, green chilli, lemon slice and shudh deshi ghee!

My Tip:

You can make churma a day before and refrigerate it. The baatis are meant to have cracks as we have a stiff dough. Use ghee generously thats the speciality of the dish!
