Aloo bati, Dal,Churma laddoo,Buttermilk, Kachumber salad

After I got married in Udaipur, I embraced the local food and learnt to make it and keep the family nourished. After all local food is everyone’s first choice.

Bati is a Rajasthan’s delicacy. These are round balls made of whole-wheat flour with salt & ajwain seeds., and are cooked  either in gas tandoor or oven. My family loves to have these baatis with filling of potatoes, which gives a different twist.After these baatis are done they are dipped in ghee to give them lovely flavours.
