Rajasthani Special: COOKER WALI JHATPAT DAAL BAATI

IMG_9043

Daal Baati in Rajasthan is considered a speciality and normally takes a lot of time to prepare it.

But with kids around, you hardly can find any time to cook it. So today I made it with a unique way of making this delicious recipe in quick time for lunch.

COOKER WALI JHATPAT DAAL BAATI

DAAL:

Ingredients:

Mung Daal: 1/3 bowl

Chana Daal: 1/3 bowl

Urad Daal : 1/3 bowl

Ginger: 1 piece

Green Chili: 2 piece

Coriander Leaves

Clarified butter or Ghee: 2 tablespoon

Spices As per taste: Salt, Asafetida, Red Pepper, Turmeric, Cumin Seeds (jeera),  Garam masala

Lemon – 1 piece

Recipe:

  1. Wash the daal and add 2.5 cups of water in a pressure cooker. Add salt and turmeric. Close the lid once the water starts boiling and take two whistles.
  2. In a pan, take ghee and heat it. Now add cumin seeds and asafetida.
  3. Now add chopped ginger and green chili to it. Saute for 2 minutes and add red pepper and garam masala now. Immediately now put this Tadka in the pressure cooked daal.
  4. Garnish it with coriander leaves and add lemon juice as per taste.

Plain Cooker wali Baati: 

Ingredients:

Mota Aata or Whole Wheat Flour : 2 bowls

Desi Ghee – 1/2 bowl

Salt, Ajwain (as per taste)

Recipe:

  1. Mix all the above ingredients and make a tight dough out of it.
  2. Now make round circular balls ( just like what we make for chapati).
  3. Put the cooker on gas and remove the whistle out of the lid.
  4. Grease the cooker with one tablespoon of ghee. When the ghee becomes hot, put the baatis or round circular balls in the cooker. Keep only that many baatis so that they are in one line touching the surface in one layer only and are not on top of each other.
  5. Close the cooker with the lid now. Now let them cook on medium flame for 15 -20 minutes. Now in between, make sure that you shake the cooker well with hands without removing the lid every two minutes.  The cooker can be shaked by grabbing the cooker by handle and rotating it sideways or upside down ( make sure cooker is tightly closed with its lid). This is done so that baatis are cooked from all the sides properly.
  6. Serve the baati hot. There is no need to dip the baatis in ghee before serving.
  7. The benefit of this baati is that ghee is used less and it can be cooked jhatpat.

My family  loved this baati, let me know what your familys’ reaction was.
