Baati Recipe: Wheat Pockets

Wheat pockets following baati recipe. You may call it stuffed baati, but it's open like a basket. Just stuffed the wheat basket with potato filling. Worth a try for occasional oil-free treats! Made on gas stove.


baati
Recipe:

1 cup wheat flour
2 tbsp oil
salt as per taste
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp carom seeds (ajwain)
Little water to make dough - should not be too soft nor too hard

Mix everything and make a dough. Keep aside for 20-30 minutes.

Potato Filling:

2 boiled potatoes (mashed)
1/2 tsp fennel seeds (saunf)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1/2 tsp coarse coriander powder (I used home made)
Salt as per taste, 1/4 tsp oil, 1 tsp ginger- chilly paste
Sambar powder- 1 tsp (optional) (I used home made)  Here's the sambar powder recipe.

Take a pan, heat oil.
Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds. Stir
Add coriander powder. Mix and add ginger-chilly paste.
Add salt
Add mashed potatoes.
Mix everything well. Add sambar powder. Switch off the flame.

Let's prepare the baatis.
Roll out small balls from the dough. Take one ball, roll it out like a small chapati. Add the filling. Close the sides like a basket. Follow the same process for all baatis. Brush baatis with little oil.
I used little dough to make baked wheat chips along with baatis as shown in picture.

Take a skillet (tawa). Keep a greased pressure cooker over it. Place baatis on the surface of the cooker. I also placed the wheat cubes along with baatis. Cover the cooker lid and remove the whistle.
We need to bake on a medium flame. Keep an eye on the baatis after 5-10 mins. You may have to switch sides intermittently for even baking. 
It may take 18-20 mins or more. Keep an eye on the sticks, which may bake quicker than baatis.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.
