Bhatura are leavened puris usually served with Chole. They are soft and spongy and must be enjoyed while they are hot or else they become chewy. This recipe is a variation of this popular bread that uses a potato filling to add softness to the Bhatura and a blend of other ingredients to flavour them. Moreover the potatoes prevent the Bhatura from turning rubbery and chewy. Another innovation is that they can be cooked lightly on a tava and kept aside. Deep-fry them only when you need to serve them to enjoy them hot and fresh straight out of the kadai!
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead into a firm dough using water as required.
- Cover with a wet muslin cloth and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll each portion into a 100 mm. (4") diameter circle.
- Cook each portion lightly over a tava (griddle) for a few seconds on each side. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a kadhai on a medium flame and deep-fry the bhaturas till they puff up and are golden brown on both sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
- Serve immediately.
