Its a very famous Indian Breakfast in North India.

Bhatura Recipe is a kind of leavened bread because we use baking soda to raise it while frying, which also makes it crispy.  My husband is a huge fan of Chole Bhature and he always insisted me to make some for him.   I started making some bhatura’s but then, I found those were not coming out fluffy like we get in restaurants, but after some research I came to know that it will help if I keep the dough aside for few hours.  It will be best if you keep the dough overnight.  This will really help you in making them more fluffy and crunchy.
