Dal Bati Churma is the most popular item in Rajasthani cuisine. It is made of three items of bati, dal, and churma. Dal is lentils, bati is a baked wheat ball, and churma is powdered sweetened cereal. Churma is a popular delicacy usually served with baatis and dal. It is coarsely ground wheat crushed and cooked with ghee and sugar. Traditionally it is made by mashing up wheat flour baatis or left over rotis in ghee and jaggery.
It seems to have a close link with Litti Chokha which is a prevalent dish in Bihar. Major difference lies in Dal bati churma is stuffed with Dal and soaked with Ghee, Litti is stuffed with Sattu and almost always baked with a tinge of Ghee.
