Daal Bafla

Bafla baati belongs to malwa community or malwa region from the state of madhya pradesh. but due to the simplicity or perhaps due to the migrating community, bafla recipe has become more popular in rajasthan. moreover, the recipe suits more to the rajasthan demographics as it requires less use of flora and fauna. furthermore, traditionally the bafla recipe is consumed with rich and high protein mixed dal, but today it is served with choice of curries. it also tastes great when served with rajasthani yoghurt based curries.

furthermore, some important and critical tips and suggestions while preparing dal bafla recipe. firstly, the traditional bafla recipe is always made with clay or baking oven and i would recommend the same if you have access to. in this i have used the pan/tawa as quick and cheat recipe for those who do not have access to ovens. secondly, the bafla as such does not have any striking taste and the taste of dish comes from the topping i.e dal recipe. hence, ensure to make it chatpata or zing as compared to the traditional dal recipe. finally while serving to ensure to crumble and crush the bafla before adding dal to it. also, do not forget to add a generous amount of ghee on top it.
