  • 1 lb Potatoes, Peeled & Boiled
  • 1 green chilli finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil

How to Make Namkin Bati

  • Dice the potatoes into 1/2 in cubes. Heat the oil in a skillet over a medium heat . Add the cumin, mustard and green chillies. When the mustard starts to splutter, add the potatoes, turmeric, chilli, coriander and salt. Stir fry for 5-7 minutes. Put aside. Cool.
  • For bati:
  • Take 2 cups whole wheat flour or corn flour, 1tbsp oil/ghee, 1 tsp salt, warm water and oil for deep-frying. Mix flour, salt, oil/ghee and make a tight dough.
  • Keep aside for 20 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into balls (nearly equal to tennis ball size).
  • Take a ball, flatten it on a slightly floured surface and roll into a round of 3" across. Place 2 tbsp of the filling in the center and fold up the edges enclosing the filling completely. Press the ball (bati) lightly in between your palm (to make bati little flate).
  • Take water in a saucepan for boiling. Put the bati into boiling water and boil it on medium heat for about 30 minutes.
  • Take out bati when done and keep aside, till it cools (about 30 minutes).
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Put as many batis as you can into the hot oil. Fry until crisp and golden. Drain.
