Yeasted Bhatura#BreadBakers

Chole Bhatura' is a very famous street food in India This Punjabi dish  a combination of Chole and Bhatura, a chickpea gravy served with fried bread. Bhatura's are made with or without yeast. This Bhatura recipe is with yeast, they so very flaky, puffy, super soft and delicious. I served them with Chole. There is nothing more delicious, super tasty than this combo of Chole Bhatura. 
Made for lunch and we, really enjoyed them. 
Makes 13

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/3 Cup Fine Semolina
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup Club Soda
1 Tablespoon Oil
1 Teaspoon Yeast
1 Tablespoon Sugar
½ Teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste
Oil as required for deep frying


In a bowl add the sugar, salt, oil, yeast, club soda and mix it. Now add the semolina and give it a good mix. Cover the bowl and let it rest for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes add both the flours in a bowl. Mix it well add more club soda if necessary and knead it to a soft dough. Take the dough out on to lightly oiled work surface and knead till you get a soft smooth dough for about 10 minutes.
In a big bowl add a teaspoon of oil and club soda each and mix well. Coat the dough with this and let it rest covered till it doubles in volume. This oil and club soda mix, will help to keep the dough moist, since semolina tends to absorb more liquid and the dough should not dry out. Cover the bowl with a lid and keep it in a warm place for 2.1/2 to 3 hours.
After 2.1/2 to 3 hours of fermenting the dough should look like this.
Knead the dough once again for 3-4 minutes and put in the same place for another hour.
Divide the dough into equal pieces.
Make lemon size balls out of it.
Keep the balls covered in a damp cloth.
Rolling one at a time oil the work surface 
Flatten it to 2-3 inches with a rolling pin into an oval shape or round in shape.
Flatten all the balls and keep them covered with a damp cloth.
In the meantime heat the oil for deep frying.
 Starting with the first rolled one put it in hot oil on medium high flame, it will puff up immediately. 
The oil should be very much hot. Flip it when the one side is light golden
Fry them one by one, till all are done.
Bhaturas  are  ready ...
Enjoy them. 
Do try this and make your meal a special and enjoyable one.

Happy Home-maker and culinary enthusiast.


  1. Love how they puff up! What a great accompaniment to the meal.

  2. I am intrigued by your addition of club soda to the oil to coat the dough as it rises, Sneha. I often use oil but never with soda. Your bhatura puff up so nicely! Thanks for hosting and for the excellent theme.

  3. What great puffy light looking bhatura! I'm intrigued like Stacy with the soda and oil coating, something I'll have to try. Thanks for the fun theme.

  4. Hello Sneha, I loved the use of semolina, all-purpose flour and wholewheat flour in your recipe. And the oblong shape looks so cute. Thanks for hosting this month!

  5. Bhatura was my favourite...... Chole and bhatura are a unbeatable combination.......
