For the Baati/ Baafle…
2 cup atta
1/2 cup sooji
1/2 cup besan
Add 1/3 cup oil
Mix in the oil and try to form loose muthis….as shown in the pic. If the muthis do not form, add a little more oil.
Now using a little water make a stiff poori like dough.
Shape into round large lemon size balls. Flatten them like pedas. Press your finger in the middle of each Baati to make a small indentation.
Boil water with a little salt and oil. Simmer Baatis in the water till they rise to the top.
Using a wire mesh, gently take out baatis.
Place them in a clay pot lined with aluminum foil that has been rubbed with some ghee/oil. Place clay pot in a cold oven. Then switch on oven to 375F and bake for about 45min to 1 hour. Flip sides in between. In the last 5-10minutes…. increase oven temperature to 400F and bake till the baatis turn a deep golden.
Holding each baati with a pice of foil, squish with hand to gently crack.
Just before serving….immerse cracked baatis in warm ghee and take out.
Serve warm with Panchmel Dal!
