Bhatura is a fluffy deep fried bread from India. It is often eaten with chole masala .making the traditional dish chole bhature. This combination tastes really awesome. A typical recipe includes Maida,yogurt,oil and baking powder or yeast. But today I used baking powder in this recipe. Once kneaded well, the dough is left to rise and then divided into equal portions of it are flattened using rolling pin,then deep fried until they puff into a lightly golden color.
I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.
