The Essence of Dal Baati Churma

Rajasthani Dal Bati Churma is a dish that combines lentil curry with wheat rolls. The curry is infused with aromatic spices, adding a savory layer to each spoonful. The Baatis, dense, round-shaped yet fluffy, are baked over open flames, adding a smoky essence to the dish. The sweet Churma transforms the wheat into a crumble, sweetened with jaggery or sugar and infused with ghee, creating a harmonious balance. The dish deeply represents Rajasthan's cuisine and culture. Its preparation is not just a cultural ritual but also a sense of tradition passed down through generations.

Instructions for making dal bati churma recipe

For Baati:
In a large mixing bowl, combine whole wheat flour, semolina, ghee, and salt. Gradually add water and
knead into a stiff dough.

Divide the dough into small portions and shape them into round balls. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Place the baati on a baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes or until they turn golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with ghee for added flavor.

For Dal:
Rinse the mixed lentils thoroughly and cook in a pressure cooker with chopped vegetables, turmeric powder, and salt until soft. In a separate pan, heat ghee and add cumin seeds. Once they splutter, add chopped onions and ginger-garlic paste.

Sauté until onions are golden brown, then add chopped tomatoes, red chili powder, and garam masala. Cook until the tomatoes are soft and the oil separates. Add the cooked lentils to the mixture and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

For Churma:
In a bowl, combine whole wheat flour and ghee to form a crumbly texture. Bake this mixture in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until it turns golden brown. Allow it to cool, then add powdered sugar, chopped nuts, and cardamom powder. Mix well to form just like the Rajasthani Dal bati churma.

Serve the baatis with a generous dal, and don't forget to enjoy the churma on the side. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot. The dal bati recipe will be tastier when paired with a wide range of authentically made ADF Soul's pickles.
