How to Make Stuffed BatiHideShow Media
For the Baati Dough:
In a big bowl, add the wheat flour. Add the salt, baking powder, and ghee. Mix everything together with clean hands.
Now sprinkle water and make a stiff dough. Allow the Batis Dough to rest for half an hour
For the Stuffing:
In a kadai, add oil and heat. Now, add the grated ginger and saute.
Then, add the chopped onions and stir-fry till translucent.
Now, add the turmeric powder, coriander powder, jeera powder, red chilli powder and amchoor powder and stir-fry quickly.
Just add a few teaspoons of water to the above powder so that everything is de-glazed.
Now, add the chopped tomatoes and cook everything together. Add crumbled paneer and toss and mix everything well. Add salt.
Now, your stuffing for the baatis is ready.
How to Prepare:
Make balls from the wheat flour dough. Take each ball and pat with your hands to make a puri.
Stuff 2 tsp of the paneer filling into the puri.
Pull up the edges and shape the puri back into a stuffed ball or stuffed baati.
Do the same with all the wheat flour dough balls.
Now, microwave for 4 or 5 minutes in high. Allow standing time of 2 minutes.
Drown each Stuffed Batis in a bowl of ghee and see the golden Batis shine with the ghee bath. (You can skip this step and be guilt-free).
Serve with dal or with any chutney of your choice.
