Channa Bhatura

Channa Bhatura this is my all time favourite dish , i normally make this for breakfast or rather to say brunch for weekends or for dinner.
Ingredients for making Bhatura:
  • 2 cups - All purpose flour(maida)
  • 1 cup Buttermilk ( or as desired to knead the dough)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 Tablespoon Oil/Butter
  • Oil for deep drying
Ingredients and method for making Chole (channa): pls follow the link

Method for making Bhatura:

Step 1: In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients together- All purpose flour, salt, baking soda and mix well.

Step 2 : Add the buttermilk and water to the dry ingredients and knead them to a soft pilable dough. Keep it in a airtight container and let it rest for 2 to 3 hrs .

Step3: Heat Cooking Oil in a deep frying pan.

Step 4: Meantime take the dough and knead it again. Then roll out a small amount of dough to make it 1/4Th inches thick and 5 inches in diameter.

Step 5: Deep fry it in oil. Fry one side and then turn over and deep fry the other side. Remove when it turns golden brown and then drain the excess oil in a tissue paper and then serve the Bhaturas warm with side dish Chole (channa), a small piece of lime and some fresh cut Onions.
