Dal Bati recipe - Dal Baati (Rajasthani recipe) - Starter, Snack, breakfast Recipe

Dal Bati is famous Rajasthani dish which is made with lentils (Dal) & wheat flour (Bati). This dish also has Ghee. Traditionally it is also deep fried in Ghee. I have done baking version. I heard about this few years ago from one of my Rajasthani colleague. He was mentioning he had dal Bati for weekend meal and it was too heavy etc..He said it is fried with ghee etc.. Last 5 years I have been visiting Chennai for work I have been eating at Rajdhani almost every trip. I started liking Dal Baati. I am sure kids would love it. Finally I managed to do it. They enjoyed it
