Wheat Bhatura Recipe

Wheat bhatura is good for breakfast because the dough ferments over night and is perfect to be fried by morning.



Wheat Flour  – 1 cup

Sugar           – 1 Table spoon

Cooking Soda- 1/4 teaspoon

Salt to taste    – 1/4 teaspoon

Curd (not sour)- 2 spoons

Lukewarm water- just enough to make the dough. 


Cooking Method:

Mix all the ingredients well in a bowl.  Add lukewarm water in stages and need well till the dough is soft and do not stick to your hands.  Needing the dough is the key to good puffed bhaturas.  Cover the dough with a neat wet cloth and let it ferment overnight in container that has double the space of the dough.  

After fermentation the dough will raise almost double the size, roll the dough to small balls, so that it could be flattened for frying ( similar to poori).  Use oil to grease the base and roller, fry in medium hot oil(not smoking hot).  Keep turning the bathura for even  frying till golden brown. Fish the bhaturas to a oil drainer vessel to let the excess oil drain. Serve hot battura with chana masala to make it even more yummy.
