Well-known as an accompaniment for Chole, piping hot bhatura is a delightful treat for all, especially on damp and rainy evenings.

However, remember that the bhaturas will become soggy and chewy if not served hot and fresh. Also, take care to blot the excess oil with a paper napkin before serving.

We also have a huge collection of Indian breads that team up well with Subzis and Curries.

How to make Bhatura

  1. Take the sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Add the dry yeast in into it.
  3. Now, add about ¾ cup of warm water in the bowl.
  4. Stir well until the yeast dissolves into the water.
  5. Cover with a lid and wait for 5 to 7 minutes or until the mixture is frothy. This is done to activate the dry yeast. If you are using fresh yeast you can incorporate it directly into the dough. 
  6. Take a deep bowl and add the plain flour into it. You can add about a teaspoon of ajwain (carom seeds) to flavour the Bhatura dough.
  7. Add the curd. Curd makes the dough soft and also helps in fermenting it. Also, add the salt to taste. 
  8. Now, add the ghee. You can also use soft butter or oil.
  9. Add the yeast mixture.
  10. Knead to make a soft dough using enough warm water. You can also use warm milk to make the dough softer.
  11. Knead it well for at least 6 to 7 minutes to make a soft dough.
  12. Cover the dough with a lid or wet muslin cloth to prevent the dough from drying up. You can also apply a thin layer on the dough before covering it to shield the dough.
  13. Keep the dough aside to prove for approx. 30 minutes. The volume of the dough will increase slightly.
  14. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
  15. Sprinkle a little flour on the rolling surface. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the surface.
  16. Take a portion of the Bhatura dough and roll into a 150 mm. (6”) diameter circle.
  17. Heat the oil in a kadhai. Add the Bhatura into the hot oil over a medium flame. 
  18. Deep-fry the bhaturas till they puff up and become golden brown in colour from both sides.
  19. Drain the Bhatura on an absorbant paper.
  20. Serve the Bhaturas immediately with Chole.

My go-to recipe for bhature!! I''ve tried it twice so far and my guests loved it! The bhature swell up well, and are practically oil-free when consumed fresh ( dabbing with paper towel unnecessary).
