Bhatura is one of the most famous breads from the Punjab. The term is most often used together with Chole as 'Chole-Bhatura'.


The Bhatura is a delicious fried bread made with plain flour. Adding butter to the Bhatura dough makes it softer while the baking soda and baking powder help it to rise and become fluffy. The curd on the other hand helps the Bhatura to rise and adds a slight tangy taste.


Bhaturas are served at most Punjabi functions and restaurants and the size of a Bhatura could vary a great deal. At a traditional Punjabi restaurant or get-together you can expect very large Bhatura being fried right there before your eyes in huge kadhai.

Soft, succulent bhaturas..truly restaurant style! I think the curds and the butter is what gives softness to these bhaturas. Try http://www.tarladalal.com/Chole-2182r with these Bhaturas, it pairs really well.

Couldn''t resist the moment I made it... It was just FAB!! So soft and it fluffed up also really well. I liked this yeast free version of the Bhatura and enjoyed it with Chole. http://www.tarladalal.com/Peshawari-Chole-30881r
