Daal Bafla/Baati

When ever we think about Daal bati, we remember Rajasthani Daal Bati. But at our place we prepare Khandesh style daal bafala that is daal batti. My husband taught me this dish. It's his favorite dish. Instead of baking into tandoor or in Oven, he deep fry it in oil. Battis tastes awesome after frying. We usually eat leftover battis (if any) with tea.

For Bafala/ Batti
Whole wheat flour (Atta) - 2 cups
Chiroti Rawa (thin semolina) - 1/4 cup
Ajawain - 1/4 teaspoon
Hot oil - 4 teaspoons
Salt to taste.
Oil for deep fry

FOR Daal
Tuver dal - 1/2 cup
Moong Daal - 1/4 cup
Masoor daal - 1/4 cup
Oil - 2 tablespoon
Asafetida - 1/4 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves - 3-4
Red chilli powder - 2 teaspoon
Goda Masala - 2 teaspoon
Kokum - 3-4
Jaggery - 1 teaspoon
Chopped Coriander - 2-3 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Pure ghee - 1/4 cup

For Bafala/ Batti

Mix all the ingredient of batti and knead a tight dough with water. Cover and keep aside for half an hour. In a large vessel take around 1 lit. water and boil it. Now make medium size ball of the dough. Put all balls in boiling water. Boil it for another 15 minutes. Drain all the water from batti. Cut battis into half. Heat oil in heavy bottom kadai. Deep fry batti till it turns to golden brown.
For Daal
Wash and Pressure cook all daals with little hing and turmeric powder. Heat oil in kadai make tadka of cumin. Add hing, turmeric and curry leaves. Add cooked daal, red chilli powder, goda masala, kokum, jaggery and salt. Mix well. Add some water for desired consistency. Bring it to boil. Add chopped coriander.
Break the baflas/ batti completely. Pour daal on it. Then pour 1-2 teaspoon of pure ghee.

I tried this But it became very hard after some time. What could have gone wrong.

Khaugiri said...

Reason of hardness is either the hot oil is not sufficient which you added in dough or you kneaded a very hard dough.
