Cooker wali Baati..

Aaj ka very special lunch menu for Zayka ka Tadka family…

Soft and Yummy Cooker wali Baati..

Cooker Bati


Mota Aata or Whole Wheat Flour : 2 bowls

Desi Ghee – 1/2 bowl

Salt, Ajwain (as per taste)


  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.
