The staple food or the comfort food of Rajasthan is Daal baati. #dfwfoodadventures tried Daal bati at Bhawani Daal bati shop near Nasrani cinema hall, Chopasni Road in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
Bhawani Daal bati shop specialises in this dish!
Renowned in the countryside of Rajasthan, baati is simply a dumpling made up of whole wheat flour, baked in coal. It is served with mixed lentils, spicy garlic red chilli chutney and green chilli pickles.
We also visited the kitchen where baatis are made at Bhawani daal bati shop. Hygienically prepared, the baatis are baked in an electrical oven. Instead of using the hands to crush the baati, they are put inside a crusher and you get finely ground baati to be easily mixed with dal and chutney.
The churma laddu, again made up of whole wheat flour with sugar, ghee and nuts was to die for.
A meal that warmed our hearts and left a big smile on our faces!
