Aloo Bhatura

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.
