Marwari is the term used for many businessmen but it is really an adjective only in real this is a tag for the people belongs to marwar which was found by rathore house of rajputs in Rajasthan near jodhpur, you can say it includes nagaur, jodhpur area mainly.
So in this recipe we are going to make a Rajasthani flat bread which is known as battiye as this is inspired by batti. Battiya are filled with ghee like batti and made over tawa only not over the flame although you can make this over flame but that is only for your convenience.
This is also one of fat rich flatbread as this is made by filling ghee, but this can be eaten in daily life as people in marwar are very hardworking so they digest these kind of dishes or flatbreads there very easily.
A little ghee is an essential for a body in daily life so this is good for health after being rich in fat.

  2. Now roll a round chapati and brush this with good amount of ghee now fold it from all sides leaving a gap in between making it pentagon or hexagon in shape. Keep in mind that you have to aplly ghee in every fold to make a thin layer of ghee in them.
