Bhatura / Bhatoora is an Indian Classical thick fried flatbread which is generally served with Chooley /Chole . The combination of Chhole Bhatura is super tasty and famous as well. The authentic deep-fried bread is made from fermented dough. Here, I will show to make it quick. Healthy , Super easy and quick too. No fail recipe.
Generally Bhatura made with Maida/ all purpose flour and Semolina. In this recipe I took both Wheat flour and Maida in propotion of 2 : 1 . Result is superb. Soft even after cooled.
In this quick recipe, we will leave dough for 2 hrs and then proceed with frying. So meanwhile one can prepare Chole too. You can check the recipe of Chole (No Onion No Garlic ) here.
So lets checkout the detailed recipe…
- 2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 cup Maida
- 1/2 cup Semolina (Sooji ) / Rice Flour
- 1/2 cup Curd
- salt as per taste
- 1/2 tsp Cooking soda
- 1/2 tsp Sugar powder
- 3 tsp Oil
- Oil to fry
Sift Wheat flour , Maida flour, Salt and baking soda . Add Sooji, curd, sugar, oil and rub nicely with fingures. Knead a soft dough with help of water. Add water in intervals. Wrap it with a smooth cloth. Keep it aside for 2 hrs.
After this rest you can see dough is raised in size. Grease your palm and knead this dough nicely. At this point if u feel dough is over soft and sticky , you can sprinkle some Wheat flour and knead..
In a kadai take oil and allow it to be hot properly. To make Bhatura Perfectly puff up, the temperature of oil must be high. If oil is not hot enough, Bhatura will not puff up and it will absorb more oil.
Take a small to medium sized ball out of dough and roll a desired sized puri. You can roll this puri in round or oval shape.
Bhatura should not be very thick or very thin. Drop the bhatura in hot oil and it will start puffing with in a minute. With Slotted spoon, you can give light pressure on Bhatura. It will puff up fully. Turn the side and fry..
When light golden in color , remove the bhatura and drain on paper napkins..
Serve hot with Chhole or any other gravy or semi gravy vegetable.
Hope you all will enjoy as much we did..
