८-१० घंटे भीगे हुए उड़द दाल को मिक्सी या सील बट्टे में अच्छे से पीस लें।  पिस्ते समय २- ३ हरी मिर्च , अदरक,करी पत्ता और धनिये  के पत्ते को काट कर मिलाये। अब पेस्ट में स्वादानुसार नमक ,जीरा पाउडर , मिलाकर अच्छे से फेंटे।  जितना अधिक फेंटेंगे उतना ही पेस्ट हल्का होगा और बरे स्वादिष्ट बनेंगे। 
अब कड़ाई में तेल ले कर अच्छे से गरम करेंगे।  तेल गरम होने पर गोल गोल या चपटे बारे दाल कर सुनहरा तल ले।  बरे को हरी चटनी के साथ परोसे। 
नोट : भारत में बरा (प्रायतः ) सभी प्रांतों में खाया जाता है।  प्रोटीन से भरा हुआ बरा (बड़ा )छत्तीसगढ़ में लगभग सभी छोटे बड़े  मौकों पर बनाया जाता है।
