Rajasthani food is incomplete without the mention of the famed Dal-Bati-Churma. It consists of baatis or flaky round breads baked over firewood or over kandas (i.e. cow dung cakes) as done in villages. Batis can be baked in a gas tandoor or an electric oven as well.
But one thing common for batis, irrespective of their cooking technique is that they are always served dipped in ghee accompanied with panchmel or panchkuti dal and churma. The dal is cooked with ghee, the masalas in the dal are fried in ghee and more ghee is mixed into the dal before serving. Want to taste this traditional Rajasthani dishes in Mumbai?
