4 cups wheat flour
1 Cup of Sooji/Rawa (Semolina)
1/2 cup melted ghee or oil (I use ghee)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp Saunf powder (Fennel powder)
salt to taste

In a bowl, Mix wheat flour with sooji/rawa, salt, baking powder and saunf powder. Make a pot hole in middle and  pour melted ghee. Mix all well. And knead to a firm dough using water. Now divide dough in to lemon sized ball each. Brush with melted ghee .
Preheat oven to 220 degree Celsius.
In a baking tray place all batis (wheat bal) with little distance from each other. And bake for 10minutes. Now bring the baking tray out and flip all batis and furthur bake for 2-3minutes more. Let it cool. You will see nice light pink firm crust on top but chewy from inside. Once it is nice golden brown that means it is done. Pour all batis in ghee for about 15-20 minutes each.

Later remove from ghee and serve it with Panch kuti/ Panchmel Dal.  (Click on the links to get the recipes which i have shared before)
