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!
