in this bhature recipe, you just need to keep the dough to leaven for about 2 hours and then begun with the frying. so while the dough is leavening you can prepare your favorite chickpeas curry to along with it.

the bhatura recipe is made with maida (all purpose flour) and fine semolina (sooji or rava). i have also made the same recipe with rice flour. here i did not add the sooji. both ways the bhatura tasted good. the rice flour ones were softer even after cooling. below pic is the bhatura made with rice flour and maida.

baking soda and yogurt both act as leavening agents. you can add ¼ or ½ tsp of baking soda. i have used both the proportions of baking soda and they work fine.

  • ½ teaspoon salt or as required
  • ¼ or ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup curd (yogurt or dahi)

HOW TO MAKE easy batura recipe

making bhatura dough

  • sieve the maida (all purpose flour) with baking soda and salt.
  • add the sooji and sugar. mix well. 
  • add the yogurt and mix again.
  • add very little water, just about 1/2 tbsp and begin to knead.
  • knead the dough, adding water as required. make a smooth and soft dough.
  • cover the dough with a wet napkin and keep aside for 2 hours.

frying bhatura

  • heat oil in a kadai or pan for deep frying.
  • make small to medium sized balls from the dough.
  • roll the balls between your palms to make them even.
  • keep the balls covered with the wet kitchen napkin.
  • take a ball and flatten them. apply oil on both sides and with a rolling pin roll, the ball into oval or elongated shape.
  • make neither thick nor thin bhaturas.
  • rotate the rolling board while rolling the bhatura as it much easier than lifting it, since we are not using flour to roll them.
  • when the oil is hot enough, place the rolled bhatura gently into the oil. the bhatura will puff up.
  • aid in puffing the bhatura by appling light pressure on it with a slotted spoon.
  • when the oil stops sizzling, turn oven and fry the other side of bhatura.
  • when the bhatura is light golden, remove and drain on kitchen paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • make the rest of the bhaturas this way. serve the bhatura hot with chana masala.
