What is Bhatura?
         It is a fluffy and puffed deep-fried Indian bread that is very popular in India and is served along with Punjabi Chole or Chana Masala or Chickpeas Curry. It is made with all-purpose flour and is deep-fried in oil till it becomes nice and fluffy. You can make it with Whole Wheat Flour too, but Whole Wheat bread is called Puri/Poori, not the Bhatura, as Bhatura mainly prepares using all-purpose flour. Along with all-purpose flour, I have used other ingredients like semolina, sugar, salt, oil, milk powder, and yogurt.

Tips to Make perfect Bhatura:
  • You can use milk in place of water to knead the dough, that will help to make the softer bhaturas.
  • Rest the dough for at least 1 hour before making the bhaturas.
  • When you fry the bhatura, make sure the oil is hot else the bhatura won’t puff up and absorb a lot of oil.
