Cute Bhaturas

Bhatoora, a fluffy deep-fried bread from North India which is often savored with chickpea curry, making the traditional dish 'chole bhature'. Its usually available as a wholly puffed up large bread. Here we have a smaller, cuter version of the same traditional bhatura, which kids are really going to love. 

1 cup self raising flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tablespoon sunflower oil 
1 tablespoon natural yogurt
2-3 tablespoons water
salt to taste
oil, for deep frying
  • Mix the flour, oil, yogurt and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Add water little by little and knead to form a soft dough.
  • Cover the dough with a clean, moist tea towel and leave to rest for at least 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the dough to lightly floured surface and knead for 3-4 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball.
  • Roll out each ball into a small disc using a rolling pin and set aside to rest.
  • Heat enough oil for deep frying in wok.
  • Fry the rolled out bhaturas  in the hot oil until it puffs up. Turn it over and fry until lightly browned on both sides.
  • With a slotted spoon remove from the oil and drain onto a paper napkin.
  • Serve immediately with our own Channa Chatpata
