A Bafla is very different from a baati, the more popular Rajasthani twin. The former involves boiling the dough balla and then either dipping it in clear butter or frying it to finally serve it with dal. Another variation exists in MP in the form of Gakkad-Bharta in which the gakkad(again, a type of bati) is eaten with baingan ka bharta.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sumitpal Chhabra shares, "People in MP are very supportive and one should not forget to eat dal bafla here."

2. Bhutte Ka Khees
