Rajasthani Dal - Baati

Photobucket
Dal-baati-churma these three are the most popular and traditional dishes From the beautiful and color full state Rajasthan.These three dishes are commonly eaten on the special occasions like wedding ceremonies and also some religious occasions. Baati is a hard, unleavened bread which is made by whole wheat flour and cooked on coals and then served with ghee and dal. It is considered as a long shelf life and nutritional food.When you cook them on the coals they turns heard from out side but soft and sponge from in side.Break cooked hot baati with your hand pour lots of dal and ghee over it and enjoy it hot.
Dal-Baati is my 3rd dish from Rajasthan for Blogging Marathon-6
I didn't cook the baatis on coals,I baked them in the oven at 220C for 45 minutes.
let's check how I made them....
