  • ½ tsp salt or as required
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder

Instructions
 

kneading the dough :

  • Collect all the required ingredients.

  • Rub it into the flour mix with your hands.
  • Then add the yogurt.
  • Mix it well again.
  • Pour very little water, just about 1 tsp at a time to knead the dough.
  • Add any additional water if knead to get the dough together. The dough will be slightly sticky. I have used 4½ tsp water for kneading this dough.
  • After this, knead the dough with your hands till you will get smooth and soft dough. It will take about 10 minutes. This will bring the break the gluten and make the dough elastic.
  • Once done apply apply little oil on top of the dough.
  • Cover it with a damp cloth and place it in a warm place for about 3-4 hours.

making bhatura :

  • After few hours, you will notice its increased size. Knead the dough once again to smooth out.
  • Divide the dough into 5-6 small portions. Roll it with your both hand palms to give it a round ball shape.
  • The balls should be crack free. Keep the remaining balls covered in a damp cloth.
  • Take a ball and smear some oil over the ball and flatten it slightly.
  • Begin to roll the bhatura to oval or round shape as you desire.
  • It should neither be too thick nor thin. The edges of the bhatura should be a little thicker than the centre.

frying the bhaturas :

  • Meanwhile heat oil in a kadai on medium-high heat.
  • When the oil is hot enough, drop a small piece of the dough in the oil.
  • The dough should come up briskly. That’s when the oil is ready to fry the bhatura.
  • Slide the rolled dough gently into the oil.
  • After 5-7 seconds, gently press it in the center of bhatura with a perforated spoon to puff up.
  • Once there is no more bubbles, flip it using slotted spatula and fry other side as well. It should be crisp and golden in color.
  • Deep-fry another side until light golden brown. Make sure that you are deep frying on medium heat.
  • Once done, take it out from oil with the help of perforated spoon and transfer it on a tissue lined plate.
  • Fry remaining bhaturas in same way.
  • Serve the hot bhatura with some punjabi chole.
