Bhatura Recipe

Bhatura is a popular Indian deep-fried bread made from fermented dough. It is a fluffy and soft bread that is often served with chole (chickpea curry) or other spicy gravies. The dough is made with all-purpose flour, yogurt, and a leavening agent like baking powder or yeast. The dough is then allowed to ferment for a few hours, which gives the bhatura its characteristic texture and flavor. Once the dough is fermented, it is rolled into small discs and deep-fried until golden brown. Bhatura is best enjoyed hot and crispy.
