Aloo Bhatura Recipe is the Deep Fried Indian Bread and famous Punjabi Breakfast made with Maida, Yogurt and Boiled Potatoes, usually served with Chole or Aloo based bhaji. It is also known as Aloo Bhatoora or Aloo Batoora. Aloo Bhatura is very famous among kids, because it tastes very soft and yummy.
My husband and my mother in law like eating Chole Bhature allot, and I learned making different kind of bhatura’s for them. It took me some time to expertise in art of making Bhature, but it was very simple once I learned how to make it. While we have to keep other Bhature dough aside for few hours for making Bhatura Recipe, but here we don’t need to keep this dough aside for more than few minutes while making Aloo Bhature Recipe, because Aloo (Potato) makes dough softer and hence it will break the dough, if you will keep dough aside for long time.
It is also important that you seal Bhatura dough from sides before rolling out and putting them in oil and while frying it, keep pouring the oil on top of it to make it fluffy like you get in restaurants. See how fluffy my aloo bhatura is. Following are the ingredients that required for making Aloo Bhatura Recipe. All-purpose flour (maida), Boiled Potatoes (Aloo), Yogurt (Dahi) and Oil.Take Maida in a bowl and add mashed Potatoes, Yogurt, Oil and Salt to taste. Mix all the ingredients nicely and gradually add lukewarm water for making a soft dough. Cover the dough and keep it aside for 15-20 minutes so that it gets fermented nicely and becomes puffy. Take a small ball of dough in your hands and roll out with the help of rolling pin. Give it a nice round shape, just like we roll out poori. Make sure that the edges of Aloo Bhatura are thin. When the oil is heated properly, then carefully drop the rolled out bhatura in pan and fry on medium high flame. When the bhatura floats at the surface, press it slightly with ladle to make it puffy, turn it upside down and fry until both sides are cooked properly and evenly. While frying pour the hot oil over bhatura, so that it can nicely puff up.Drain on paper towels and your Aloo Bhatura is ready for serving.
