Dal, Baati and Churma – the combo is synonymous with Rajasthani cuisine. Here is a delicious Baked Masala Baati, made of whole wheat flour and stuffed with a flavourful green peas stuffing. The interesting twist here is that the baati is baked, reducing the oil requirement and also making it easy to prepare a whole batch at one go, without frying them one by one. Serve fresh off the oven with Panchmel Dal and Churma.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a firm dough using milk. Knead well for 3 to 4 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and cover with a wet muslin cloth and keep aside for 20 minutes.
- Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the cumin seeds and asafoetida.
- When the seeds crackle, add the green peas, ginger-green chilli paste, chilli powder, coriander powder and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring continuously.
- Remove from the flame and allow the stuffing to cool completely. Divide the stuffing into 10 equal portions and keep aside.

- Place one portion of the stuffing in the center of a rolled dough circle. Surround the filling with the dough by slowly stretching it over the filling.
- Seal the ends tightly and remove any excess dough if necessary.
- Flatten the rounds lightly and make a small indentation in the centre of the baati using your thumb.
