Bhature Recipe

Chole Bhature is one of the most mouth watering dish from punjab.  Chole and bhatura both compliment each other. Bhature is deep fried Indian style bread made from all purpose flour. The bhature have more calories than any other Indian style bread.If you are calorie conscious then this recipe might not be for you. I occasionally makes them with chole as my whole family droll over this delicacy. Let us see how it is made.

Preparation time: 1-2 hour

Cooking time: 20 minutes

  • 1/2 cup Curd
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

  • Start kneading the dough and add luckwrm water to knead smooth and soft dough.
  • Cover with a damp cloth for about an hour. In winter keep it for more time.
  • This resting time will ferment the dough and will make it more soft and airy.
  • Punch the dough and divide it in 20 equal balls.
  • Take some dry flour and roll it a slightly thick roti.
  • Heat oil in a deep fry pan or kadai.

  • After dropping in the hot oil the bhaturas will puff up like a puri, and fry it till it turns golden.

  • Enjoy it with chole a punjabi delicacy.
