Technically Baatis, these delicious baked Whole-wheat Kachori like treats are a delicious alternative to Deep-fried Maida Kachoris! We love to eat them with spicy green chutney and some hot Tea or chilled Pudina Chaach!
For the Baati/ Baafle dough
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.
Break small portions of dough. Fill liberally with spicy peas and potato (optional) filling.
Seal carefully and flatten into round discs.
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.
Brush the top of the baatis lightly with some ghee/olive oil for even uniform browning.
Place clay pot in a cold oven. Then switch on oven to 375F and bake for about 1 1/2 hour.
Flip sides in between.
In the last 15 minutes….increase oven temperature to 400F and bake till the baatis turn a deep golden.
For the filling:
Heat some oil. Splutter jeera. Follow with minced ginger and green chillies. After a minute add boiled peas and diced boiled potato (optional). Also add salt, red chili pwdr, dhania pwdr, amchur, garam masala and a little coarsely ground saunf. Bhuno for 5-6 minutes. Coarsely pound some of the peas and potato(if using), leaving some intact. Stir in some freshly chopped dhania and cook for another 2 minutes…ready!

This looks fabulous Ruchi!!! Wanted to ask alternative for clay pot,don’t have one. Is a cookie sheet lined with foil ok or may be a round cake pan?
Cookie sheet lined with foil would work…though, the browning is better on a clay surface! You can try using a pizza stone if you have one…
Wow Ruchi! Can this be made without the clay pot?
