You don’t need oven or tandoor to cook this recipe; you can simply prepare it in pan or tawa as well.

• Bafla Bati is ready to serve now. The best suitable option is spicy daal but you can try this recipe with spicy dum aloo as well.


• Keep that in mind, while cooking that always put bati in perfectly boiled water. If you do not put them in highly boiled water, they may stick to the pan.

• Also, note that prepares the soft dough and use warm water to prepare the dough.

Mix and rub ghee into the flour mixture, so the texture of flour is slightly crumbly and easily bind between hand. Curd enhances the taste of bati. Use slightly hot water for kneading bati dough.
