Bhatura | How to make Bhatura

Kapoor Sanjeev, June 3, 2014

Batoora, Bhatoora or bhatura , is a kind of fluffy  and deep-fried leavened bread which is a North Indian dish. It is often eaten with chickpea curry, chole or channe,  curd and salad which completes the traditional dish chole bhature.

Hot Chole bahtura in a cold North Indian winder morning along with a tea from the Delhi Chandni chowk street is the best break fast I ever had. Below is the recipe I just got from a street vendor during a morning chitchat

Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 7 nos
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serving Size: 7 Bhaturas
  • Maida or All purpose flour - 2 cups, (flour)
  • Semolina/ Rava - 3 tablespoons (sooji)
  • Hung Curd - 4 tablespoons (yogurt)
  • Oil for frying - 1 tablespoon
  • Salt - ½ teaspoon
  • Sugar - ½ teaspoon
  • Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Water : Enough to knead into a dough
  • Oil - Enough for deep frying
  1. Combine all the ingredients Maida,Semolina,Hung Curd,Salt,Sugar,Baking powder and prepare a soft dough. Cover the dough with a wet cheese cloth and keep for 4 hours and let the dough leavens.
  2. Divide the dough in to leamon sized blls and flatten it with a rolling pin just like for chapatis or roties.(
  3. Do not use maida powder during rolling. Use oil for a smooth rolling.
  4. Heat the oil properly and fry the flattened dough.
  5. Flip the bhatura using a ladle so the both the sides should cook
  6. Fry till the Bhatura is golden brown.
  7. Keep in a vessel with holes so that the oil get drained out.
  8. Serve Bhatura hot along with chole, curd and onions.
Oil should be hot enough before frying, else bhatura will absorb a lot of Oil
Make sure oil is not smoking hot else Bhatura will turn brown instead of golden colour
Can use milk instead of water for kneading
For a healthy option you can use 50 precent wheat instead of 100 % maida.
Bhaturas taste great of served hot
