bhatura

Add the grated potatoes to it and mix all the ingredients well with hands and knead a soft dough for the bhatura. Use water in little amounts to knead the dough , we have used 1/4  cup water to knead it. Now grease your hands with oil and smoothen the dough. Spread a little oil over the dough and keep it covered for 15 to 20 minutes to set.bhatura

Grease hands with oil again and smoothen the dough. Spread dry refined flour over the hands and make dough balls from the dough.

bhatura

To roll out the dough balls to make bhaturas firstly grease the rolling pin and board with a bit of oil. After that pick up a dough ball and press it with hands like and roll out. Meanwhile place a wok on flame for the oil to heat.

bhatura

After rolling out the bhatura a bit rather than picking up, rotate the rolling board. Give it a round or oval shape as desired. Flatten it out like a paratha i.e  neither too thin nor too thick. In the meanwhile check if the oil in the wok is hot enough to fry the bhaturas. The oil should be hot enough for frying the bhatura.

Now to fry the bhatura, put the bhatura in the wok. Press it lightly with a slotted ladle. Flip it when puffed and fry it golden brown in color from both sides.

  • You can roll out the Bhatura in two different ways. Either roll out the dough ball by rotating the rolling pin while rolling or by picking up and rolling it while dusting it with a bit of refined flour.
  • To check if the oil is hot enough break a little dough and put it into the oil. The dough should instantly float over the oil as we need the oil to be hot enough for frying the bhature.
  • Make sure you grate the potatoes finely with a fine grater so that they are kneaded well with the dough.
  • Add little quantity of water while you knead the dough because the moisture from the potatoes goes into the dough.
  • You can add Dahi and baking soda to make the bhatura soft and puffy. Add semolina to keep the bhatura puffy for a longer time.

  • While grinding the mixture you don’t grind them too finely so that it should not turn into a paste, it should remain powdered.
  • Strain the powder so that big chunks can be separated easily.
  • While cooking the cashew powder, keep special note of its consistency. If the paste is not cooked with desired consistency and remains less cooked then it might get difficult to bind and roll out the paste.
