  • 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.
