Bhatura is one of the most famous breads from Punjab. 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 a huge kadhai. The term is most often used together with Chole as 'Chole-Bhatura'. The yeast free bhatura is a delicious fried Indian bread made with the same ingredients as its version with yeast.

Adding butter to the yeast free 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.

The resting time of 1 hour is important for the dough of Punjabi bhatura without yeast to rise and in turn puff up while deep-frying. Remember to serve them immediately, else they might turn chewy.

Tips for bhatura (yeast free recipe). 1. Ensure the maida is free of lumps and dirt. Sieve it if need be. 2. Baking powder if used from a packet which is unopened or recently opened is the best. 3. These bhaturas are rolled 6” in diameter, almost as big as chapatis. So you will have to use a bigger kadai for deep-frying. 4. Further the quantity of oil will also have to be added accordingly. If the oil is not enough, the bhaturas might puff up well.
