DAL BATTI | KHANDESHI DAL BATTI RECIPE | DAL BAFLA RECIPE

Dal Batti or Dal Bafle is one of the authentic dish of India.Here I am preparing the traditional Dal Batti recipe which is widely prepared in north west part of Maharashtra.I would like to give all credit of this recipe to my wonderful neighbour and also a dear friend Dhanashree Gharate from whom I have learnt this delicious dish.The recipe is same as that of traditional Dal Bati..i.e.दाल बाटी ……but the name is bit different like they call it as Batti i.e.दाल बट्टी.Also here maize flour is added with the wheat flour while making the Batti’s.(Semolina or Rava is not added in this recipe of Batti instead maize flour is added.)As usual Ghee is the key ingredient of this recipe,for without ghee Dal Batti cannot be complete.It is a difficult task for the health conscious people to eat it with ghee but you can’t skip it.The preparation of batti is very easy as all ingredient mixed while kneeding the dough enhances the taste of the batti.Here I have steamed the batti’s and then fried it.The dal i.e. is prepared for the recipe is also very simple.Here I have mixed Toor Dal/Arhar Dal with Moong Dal.You can prepare the dal with any one of them.The dal I had prepared was a bit spicy for we love spicy food.So lets start with the recipe…
