  1. Should we use roasted rava or unroasted?

    • Hema, use unroasted rava.

  2. Hi..I would be making this recipe but I need a total of 3kgs. Would multiplying this recipe by 6 times be fine and how much does the cake rise since I only have a 11X9 inch pan.

    • chris, this recipe will give you about 500 grams of baath cake. so for 3 kg you will need to multiply all the ingredients 6 times. this cake can be easily increased proportinately. only when adding milk, you can add some more milk. also some sugar can be added to get the right sweetness. the cake does not rise much, so you can use the pan you have.

  3. Hi,I have one question about baati and litti.Are they different or one and the same?!….

    • yashwiin, they are different.

  4. hi dassana.. can we do this in pressure cooker?

    • pooja, yes you can try. most probably it will work.

  5. Made it, love it and thank you!
