Bhaturas are deep fried Indian breads, more like pooris. Bhature or pooris are a must have dish with Punjabi Chole. For some Punjabi families, Chole bhature is a fixed Sunday breakfast dish. Bhature is made of refined flour (maida) and hence is not all that healthy. But, having it once in a while is alright and moreover it pairs excellently with Chole. Here’s the recipe for Bhature:
1 cup refined flour (maida)
3 tbsp semolina (rava/sooji)
1/3 cup curds (dahi)
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
Salt as per taste (namak)
½ tsp sugar (cheeni)
1 tsp oil (tel)
Oil for frying the bhaturas
- In a mixing bowl, add maida, rava, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
- Mix well using a spoon.
- Now, add curds and mix.
- Knead to a smooth dough using water as required.
- Finally, add a teaspoon of oil and knead for few seconds.
- Cover and keep aside for 3 hours.
- After 3 hours, divide the dough into small balls.
- Take a dough ball and roll into oval shaped bhaturas.
- I have sprinkled some maida on the dough ball while rolling.
- Alternatively, you can dip the dough ball in oil and roll it.
- Heat oil in a pan.
- Drop the bhaturas into hot oil and fry evenly on both sides.
- Serve hot with Punjabi Chole.
