This Dal Bati recipe is one that you could try the next time you decide to have a barbecue. Hot Spicy dal served with roasted whole wheat dough, this is absolutely delicious and yes, healthy as I decided to use the grill instead of deep frying them.

This seems wonderful and it is baked instead of fried! I must try this but maybe I will reduce the ghee a bit. I know it tastes so good but trying to lose weight. This really sounds yummy.
