Bhature Recipe

Bhature (also known as bhatoore, bhatoora, bhatura) is a popular Indian bread mostly consumed in the Northern half of the country, especially the Northwestern chunk. The fluffy deep-fried bread is usually paired with chhole, pindi chane or chana masala (different varieties of curried chickpea), to make the popular Punjabi dish chhole bhature.

The puffed bread is different from most other Indian breads on various grounds like taste, size, and ingredients. A typical bhatura is made using flour, yogurt, ghee/oil, and yeast or baking powder to give it the distinct – and colossal – fluff. Chhole bhature is a popularly eaten dish, especially during festivals like Baisakhi, Basant Panchmi, and the likes. With Baisakhi less than a fortnight away, get up and gear up to roll out a zesty Punjabi meal to usher in the harvest season. Follow the recipe below to fry up some delicious bhatura, which you can gobble with this traditional chhole.
