Bhatura is a deep fried Indian bread made with plain flour (maida), dry yeast, curd, sugar and a bit of ghee. Well-known as an accompaniment for Punjabi Chole, piping hot Punjabi bhatura is a delightful treat for all, especially on damp and rainy evenings.
We have made bhatura with yeast but you can also make it without yeast.
However, remember that the bhatura will become soggy and chewy if not served hot and fresh. Also, take care to blot the excess oil from bhatura with a paper napkin before serving.
Notes on bhatura recipe. 1. 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. 2. You can add about a teaspoon of ajwain (carom seeds) to flavour the Bhatura dough. 3. Add the curd. Curd makes the dough soft and also helps in fermenting it. 4. Knead to make a soft dough using enough warm water. You can also use warm milk to make the dough softer. 5. Cover the dough with a lid or wet muslin cloth to prevent the dough from drying up.6. Sprinkle a little flour on the rolling surface. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the surface.
We also have a huge collection of Indian breads that team up well with Subzis and Curries.
