Bhatoora - bhatura - batoora - Bhature - Famous Indian puffed roti recipe - Puffed bread recipe

This is one of the favourite recipe for my kids. If we are visiting any south Indian restaurant this is must for them. They refuse to enter restaurant if Bhatura is not on menu. It is one of the popular Punjabi dish but famous across whole India. This is a very simple recipe and is without yeast too. Punjabi Chole is perfect side dish to go with it. I like to have with Pindi chole too.

All purpose flour / Maida - 4 cups
Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Powdered Sugar  - 2 teaspoons
salt to taste
Baking soda - a pinch
Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
Oil - 4 tablespoon + Oil for deep frying

Sift the Flour, Soda, baking powder together in a bowl. Mix curd, sugar, salt and mix well. Make a well in the middle pour curd mixture in the middle. Bring the flour together. Add enough water and knead to make soft soft dough. Make sure you add water little by little. Knead well get soft dough. Add oil 3 tablespoon of oil and knead again. Close it with damp muslin cloth and leave it aside for 1 hour. Divide that into equal size 12 balls. Apply oil and on the balls and leave it for another 30 mins.
