Here's Munmun Ganeriwal gluten free Chole Bhature recipe
• Fresh dahi – ¾ cup
• Whole wheat flour (gehu atta) – 2.5 cups
• Sugar - ½ tablespoon
• Salt – 1 tablespoon
• First of all, mix a few ingredients in a bowl for the dough. Take the mentioned amount of fresh dahi (ensure it isn't sour) along with maida. Add gehu atta (whole wheat flour) and half a tablespoon of sugar. Mix all the ingredients well and you may or may not require water to knead it into a dough.
• Cover the bowl with a cloth or lid and set it aside in a warm place overnight or for 7-8 hours to allow it to naturally ferment.
• Next morning, add about a tablespoon of salt and the same amount of ghee to the fermented dough. You can mix some warm water if required (not hot water). Gather the dough into a single compact ball.
• Now, you have to use a damp cloth to cover it. Again, set it aside in a warm place for about a couple of hours.
• Knead the dough again. Finally, it's time to shape into 15-20 balls or as per your requirements.
• Roll the balls into bhature and deep fry in ghee and your fluffy delight is ready.
• Now, you can serve it hot with chole, pickled ginger and onions or any other homemade pickle.
