Rajasthani Dal Bati Churma Recipe

The traditional Rajasthani dal bati churma dish is a combination of three recipes i.e. dal curry, bati, and churma (made with bati powder and chopped nuts). It is rich, healthy, and usually made during cold winter season.

We are using a special appe pan to cook bati in this recipe, but most people cook bati in bati oven. The appe pan is more practical and comfortable to cook bati. You can also cook in a traditional Indian oven but that is not convenient.

To make the perfect bati, you need to prepare the tight and hard dough.  Add a small amount of water at a time while kneading the dough. The ghee plays an important role in this traditional recipe to enhance the flavor.

The fresh dal bati churma tastes great, so serve immediately and enjoy!
