CHANA BATURA

Chana Bhatura is one of the most popular breakfast in North India.Its so popular that its sold as a fast food dish by roadside vendors.Bhatura is a fried puffy bread made out of All purpose flour(maida).I add a little bit of semolina and some slices of bread for the crispiness.Its usually served along with chana masala, a spicy and tangy chickpea dish.


BHATURA

INGREDIENTS

All purpose flour-2 cup
rava-1/4 cup(for extra crispness)
Bread - 4-5 slices,crust removed
Baking pdr - 1/4 tsp
curd-1/2 cup
water -just enough to knead to a smooth dough
salt to taste
oil for frying


Channa Masala - Click on the pic below for the recipe

METHOD

Sift the flour,salt and the baking pdr into a bowl.Break the bread and add it in the bowl.Add the curd and knead to a smooth dough adding little water.Cover it with a moist cloth and keep it aside.Allow it to ferment for 5-6 hrs or overnight.Make small size balls out of it and roll it out just like a chapathi.Dont roll out too thin ,it should be slightly thick and even ,otherwise it wont puff up.Heat the oil and fry the flattened dough.Serve it hot with chana masala.
