Adjust the consistency of the Dal before serving and if required, add some water.

Now garnish it with green coriander leaves.  

For the baatis
Mix all the ingredients and knead into firm dough, knead well.

Divide the dough into equal portions and shape each portion into an even sized round. 

Heat a gas tandoor and put the baatis on the grill of the tandoor. Cook them on a medium flame for 20 to 25 minutes. Cooking the baatis over a medium flame will ensure that the baatis are cooked from inside also.
