Wheat Bhatura Recipe


MAY 10, 2015

Sunday BrunchWheat Bhatura with its only


accompaniment Chole..yum.yum.yum!! A simple and easy Punjabi recipe prepared
with whole wheat flour instead of maida (refined flour). Nothing can beat CholeBhature Combo its like they are made for each other taste heavenly, crispy and
fluffy. Bhatura just like poori is a popular deep fried North Indian dish served
with chole, pickled chilies and onions on the side.
In this recipe I have shown both the methods of preparing bhatura Whole wheat
flour bhatura and Maida bhatura. Method is same for both the bhaturas, only
ingredients are slightly different. Wheat flour bhatura is kneaded in milk and curd and
no water is added to the dough. Though this dough DOESNT require any
resting/sitting time but I still allow it to sit for 2-3 hours and they puff up beautifully.
When Chole bhature is on the menu I soak the chana a night before and in the
morning with my morning tea I knead the dough, let it sit and by brunch time (11:30)
its ready.
I always cook wheat bhatura along with my chole for two reasons first, wheat flour
is healthier (rich in fiber, folate, riboflavin and vitamins) than maida (where the the
refining process destroys all itss vitamin content) and secondly, wheat bhatura are
denser and has a thick outer crust which keeps it fluffy for a longer period of time.
Everyone in my family absolutely loves this recipe and leftovers are tasty and

wonderful too.

METHOD

BHATURAS

1. FOR WHEAT BHATURA - Assemble all the ingredients.

2. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and knead a soft dough. This dough
should be kneaded with milk and curd and requires no water.

3. Finish up the dough with 1 tablespoon of oil.

4. All worked up dough.

5. Transfer it to a bowl...

6. Cover it with a wet towel and set it aside in a warm place for 2-3 hours.

7. Heat oil in a kadhai and to check if the oil is ready - drop a tiny ball of dough in
the hot oil..

8. And if it rises to the surface right away - oil is ready for frying.

9. After 2-3 hours of resting time - shape the dough into small round balls. Apply
a drop of oil and...

10. Roll them out into small disc shaped rounds.

11. Drop the shaped bhaturas in hot oil...

12. Keep frying till evenly brown from both the side.

13. Remove and rest it on a paper towel to drain all the excess oil.

14. Fluffy and soft wheat bhaturas are ready.

15. FOR MAIDA BHATURA - Method is the same, assemble all the ingredients.

16. Knead a soft pliable dough.

17. Make sure the dough is not too sticky, if it still feels sticky dust it with 1
tablespoon of flour and give it a smooth finish.

18. Cover it with a wet towel and set it aside in a warm place for 2-3 hours.

19. After 2-3 hours of resting time - shape them into small balls and roll them out.

20. Fry them in hot oil....

21. Till evenly brown from both the sides.

22. Both the bhaturas are ready. Well from the picture no one can make out the
difference but wheat bhaturas are much denser and has a thick crust than the

regular bhaturas.

23. Hot bhaturas are ready...

24. Enjoy them with its only accompaniment CHOLE!!

Never thought there was anything like a wheat bhatura. Searched up Healthy bhatura and your blog came up.
So many pictures to explain a recipe? How excellent. You have totally mimicked a video presentation. What
people show in a video you have done through pictures. Remarkable job Ruchi.

Never heard of wheat bhatura, after seeing your recipe I got inspired and tried it yesterday. They were just
perfect and soft. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Have tried many of your recipes gulab jamun, dhokla, chicken
smeared legs, dhaba chicken, dessert cups and the list goes on. They were all liked by everyone in my
family. Thanks and looking forward to more of your creation.

Tried this and were perfect. Never tried wheat bhaturas before and they were liked by everyone. They puffed
up nicely and were very soft. Have tried couple of your recipes and were all a success. Thanks for your hard
work. Just a suggestion why dont you post your videos too. Not that your pictures are not enough they are
such a help, even during power outrage.Just a thought!!

Kamal ki recipe hai Ruchi ji. So soft and perfect. It was healthy because it was wheat but not so
healthy.Everyone loved it and they puffed up so beautifully. This my third recipe after Khaman dhokla and
potato balls recipe. All perfect and great recipes. Need some more snack recipes. Thanks for all your pictures.
