bhaturabhatura recipe | punjabi bhature recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. bhature is basically a large poori served with chickpea curry, chole or channe. this is an exotic punjabi cuisine delicacy, but very popular throughout india. bhature is prepared from mixing maida, yogurt and a fermentation agent. traditionally, yeast was used as fermenting agent. however it is now replaced with baking soda and baking powder.

while, i am huge fan of poori baji recipe, my husband is ardent follower of chole bhatura recipe. he is such fan of bhatura that he can consume it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. whenever we plan for outdoor dinners in any punjabi restaurant, chole bhature is always on the order menu. gradually, even i have started to like it. perhaps the combination of chole masala and deep fried bhatura makes it a exotic recipe.

furthermore, i would like to share some tips and tricks for perfect, fluffy bahtura recipe. to get a perfect shape, kneading the dough is very critical. i have kneaded the dough for almost 8-10 minutes continuously. also, i have added 1 tbsp of rava while mixing the dough. rava helps to get a crispy bhature after deep frying. lastly, i would highly recommend to use sour curd or yogurt. sourness would hasten the fermentation process and the dough would be extra soft.

finally, i would request you to visit my indian roti recipes collection and indian curry recipes collection. particularly, chole bhature, paneer tikka masala, palak paneer and paneer kadai masala recipe. also, do visit my other indian flat bread recipes. especially, garlic naan recipe, rumali roti recipe, poori recipe and aloo ki poori recipe.
