I tasted Dal Baati only last year. Weird right? That too I came to know only then. When I was served at a friend’s place. I really loved it and wanted to take the recipe from her. Saw this Dal baati recipe at Khaugri and bookmarked it few month back. But recently wanted to eat this dal baati, so I wanted to try and blog it too. I had this last year when I visited Pune – Rajdhani restaurant. I saw it in a mall and suggested Vj to have lunch there. I have hear about Rajdhani in Chennai that they serve so many varieties of food and dessert. So wanted to give a try there in Pune as I know I wont get a chance to go there at Chennai.
But there was not that good service where we went at Pune. Or may be we went late for lunch. There were few items missing or they forgot our table. Also we all were South Indians and who ever accompanied us never felt filling and they were waiting and waiting for some rice to be served. But everything was served in small quantity and they never re filled our dishes – as they supposed to do (as far as I know). And I think no one liked the food. Somehow I liked as I like most of the North Indian cuisine. From that time, everyone in our family runs away if they hear the name Rajdhani. But I sure want to visit the one at Chennai once in my life time .
Serve hot ghee dipped baatis with the finger-licking good dal- generously - generous enough to drink it, yumm.
