Dal, Baati and Churma – the combo is synonymous with Rajasthani cuisine. Here is a delicious Baked Masala Baati, made of whole wheat flour and stuffed with a flavourful green peas stuffing. The interesting twist here is that the baati is baked, reducing the oil requirement and also making it easy to prepare a whole batch at one go, without frying them one by one. Serve fresh off the oven with Panchmel Dal and Churma.
