Bhatura Recipe is a fluffy deep-fried bread from North India usually served with Chole or Aloo based bhaji. It is also known as Bhatoora or Batoora. Making proper Bhatura takes some practice but if you follow procedure properly you will be able to produce yummy Bhatura’s in no time. 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.
Lets not waste more time and start making Bhatoora’s. In a big bowl take the Maida, Yogurt, Baking Soda, Sugar, Oil and Salt to taste.Mix all the ingredients very well, gradually add lukewarm water and knead a soft dough with your hands.Cover the dough and keep it aside for few hour at warm place for fermentation. For better results, keep it overnight.Take some oil in your plams. Take small ball of the prepared dough in your palms.Place the ball on a flat surface and roll out with rolling pin.Roll out the ball into a 4-5 inch disc.Heat good amount of oil in a frying pan and carefully drop the rolled out bhatura in it.Fry bhatura on high flame till it is nicely puffed up.Fry from both sides till the bhatua is light brown in color.Take out from oil and drain on paper napkins.Our Bhatura is now ready, serve it with chole, onion and some pickle and enjoy the complements.
