Dal Baati (Hindi: दाल बाटी) is an Indian dish comprising dal (lentils) and baati (hard wheat rolls).[1] It is popular in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh (especially in Braj, Nimar and Malwa regions).

First a small amount of vegetable oil is heated in a frying pan and then the seasoning rai-jeera (mustard and fennel seeds) is added into the hot oil. Then mashed green chilli, garlic and some spices including hing, red chilli, haldi, coriander, ginger are added. There may be a sweet and sour daal version can be made.And finally, the boiled daal is added and cooked.
