This dish is from the cuisine of Rajasthan in Western India. Dal Baati is more popular and specially made on some occasions. The Baati usually roast in an open coal fire but you can also cook them under a grill or in your oven. But I have cooked in gas oven not electric oven. Daal is basically prepared from tuvar daal or red lentil and Baati is basically a hard bread made up of wheat powder commonly known as aata.
