*Once the batis are golden brown in color from all sides, remove them from the oven.

You can remove those which are done and let other cook.

Once removed from the oven or gas press the bati gently so that it will crack but will not brake.

Dip them in liquid home made Ghee, take out and store in a container.

In this way prepare all the bati.
