Baati (Daal Baati) and Choorma – Rajasthani Cuisine

Dal Bati Churma is a very popular Rajasthani dish. The mere mention of the crumbled Baatis with the Panchmela Daal is enough to get the taste glands working overtime. The simple version is with just the Baatis and Daal on top with drizzle Ghee is the more rustic and traditional way to serving this awesome dish.
