To make bati, knead a soft dough with wheat flour, ghee, curd salt and just
enough water. Make lemon sized balls. Cover and keep them from 1 hour. Then
roast them in batches on hot coals or oven for 20 minutes and microwave oven
for 15 minutes till they become double their actual size. Try to bake them
till they become puffed and golden from outside and spongy from inside.

ghee to it. Mix them well and make a soft dough using water. Now make small
ping pong balls. Once the balls are made. place them one by one on a flat
surface and make small circular plates or bread out of them. As soon as the
breads are made, put some oil in a deep frying pan. Now fry all the breads
in this oil till they become slightly brown. While still hot, crush the
breads to powder to make the Churma. This Churma is now ready to be served.
