Chola Bhatura


Deciding everyday of what to cook for dinner is a very difficult task...............I was also under the same confusion when I suddenly decided to make chola bhatura for dinner y'day. My choley recipe is already in our blog : http://annaprashana.blogspot.com/2009/03/punjabi-chole.html

Hope you guys like preparing Bhatura my way :)

Ingredients:

½ cup of Potatoes (boiled & grated) OR 2 slices of white bread (remove corners)
½ cup of All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
Salt (to taste)
1/4 tsp baking soda
curd
1 tsp Cooking Oil
More Cooking Oil (for deep frying)


Method:

Combine the flour, potato (if you are using bread then just wet them and mash it and add to the flour), 1 ½ teaspoons of oil, baking soda, curd and salt and knead into a firm dough without using any water. Knead the dough very well until it is smooth. Cover with a wet muslin cloth and rest the dough for 10 to 20 minutes. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll out into circles. Deep fry in hot oil until the bhaturas puff up and both sides are golden brown. Serve hot with the cholay, sliced onion and lemon wedges. "

  1. excuse the stupid question, but could the oil and deep frying be avoided and the bhaturas be made like chappatis? oh... ok, then they wouldn't puff up. but still?

  2. no question is stupid ........so lemme answer ur question...............if u make bhaturas without oil they will become hard and will nowhere be like rotis as they are made with maida. Anything made with maida shld be consumed immediately otherwise they become rubbery and strechy. If it was made with wheat flour then u can def try roti style....but then there will be no diff between a roti and a bhatura.
