How to Make Masala Baati

  • Mix together flour, semolina, curd, spices and ginger-garlic paste.
  • Knead into semi-hard dough with enough water.
  • Keep it aside for 20 minutes covered with a wet cloth.
  • Heat oil in a pan, splutter cumin seeds.
  • Add onion and green chillies.
  • Fry for 2-3 minutes till the onion turns brown.
  • Add salt and mix.
  • Add tomatoes and spices.
  • Cook covered till the aroma starts coming and tomatoes become tender.
  • Add peas and cook covered for 3-4 minutes till the mixture becomes dry and peas absorb the spices well.
  • Keep it aside to cool.
  • Now, divide the dough into equal balls.
  • Roll the balls in your hands.
  • Keep rolling the dough ball and close it to form baatis.
  • For boiled baatis, boil water in a pan.
  • Immerse the baatis in the boiling water and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  • The baatis will start floating over the water.
  • Take them out and cool at room temperature for 5 minutes.
  • Bake all the baatis, ( both boiled and raw ) in a preheated oven ( 180 degrees C ) for 30-35 minutes, flipping sides after every 10 minutes.
  • Ensure that they don't get burnt.
  • Take out from the oven, allow it to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Break the baaties by pressing with hands and sprinkle ghee on top.
  • Enjoy it with your choice of chutney or raita.
