What is Bhatura?

Bhatura is a deep-fried Indian bread prepared with all-purpose flour. It is absolutely puffed and is soft yet crispy. It has an unmatched texture and its unmatched partner is chole or chana masala. This is my favorite bhatura recipe. This recipe gives perfect texture of bhatura. Chole bhature comes from Punjabi cuisine. This is sinfully tasty. It can be prepared and served for breakfast or lunch. Many people avoid making and consuming chole at night and therefore this is not a very popular dinner recipe. However, for me, chola bhatura is my favorite brunch recipe. While traveling from Ajmer to Jaipur, we would plan accordingly and stop at our favorite restaurant on that highway to relish a plate of chana bhatura for brunch.

Ingredients and Substitutes

All-purpose flour: Bhatura has a texture, which makes it bhatura. And altering the flour would alter the texture. Therefore it is indispensable to use all-purpose flour for bhatura recipe. Further, make sure that the all-purpose flour is not stale.
Semolina: Although added in a very little quantity, this should not be skipped. Make sure to add in the mentioned quantity of semolina for the perfect texture of bhatura.
Yogurt and Baking Powder: Traditionally yeast was used to ferment the dough for bhatura. However, now baking powder, baking soda, etc are used along with yogurt. Well, it is very important to understand that baking powder and baking soda are different items and CANNOT be used interchangeably. This recipe calls for baking powder and the same should be used. Yogurt is also used. Sour yogurt works better but certainly, fresh yogurt too can be used.
Sugar and salt: Adding sugar gives a beautiful color to the bhatura. Salt is added as per taste.bhatura recipe

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
