Chole Bhature Recipe | Aloo Bhatura

       Chole Bhature - a famous Punjabi flat bread made with maida/all purpose flour.Always deep fried in oil to get puffy,soft bature.Bhatures are often served with chole ,a curry made of chickpeas cooked along with Indian spices.Hence chole-bhature is an inseparable combination.

     Chole bature's are not only famous in Punjab,but all over India or you can say world wide.This is the first time i am trying my hands on bhatures.I used north Indian famous cook tarladalal ji recipe.She made the bature's with potato.So i call bhature as aloo bhatura.These aloo bhatura is so filling in a way that we skipped our lunch on Saturday.
     Chole bhatures can be relished hot along with white chickpeas masala/curry.
Why this chole bhatura?
     This aloo bhatura can be eaten when cold too,it is not going to become rubbery also there is no cooking soda or baking powder.I still want to do batura with wheat flour,if i do it then i will share it with you all.In this post i am going to explain only bhature recipe.

For making Dough:
  • If you are not able to make a dough with the mentioned amount of oil,add little more oil.
  • It take at least 10 minutes to make the dough soft and ready.
While frying:
  • Fry the bature in medium high heat of oil.
  • If the flame is too low you result in fried naan.If its too high you end up in maida poori(Very crispy).
  • Press the bhatura gently after it rises ,to get a puffy chole bature.
  • Puffy ones taste better than non-puffed ones.
