A favorite for many of us, Batura is a deep fried flat bread made of flour. Chole/Chana masala is the most common side dish, Baturas are typically served with. This is a very popular choice among the street food joints in India. So, you might find very few indians who'd say no to a plate of chole-Bature with a few exceptions for health reasons.
Prep Time: 2 hours (kneading +fermenting) + frying time
All Purpose Flour / Maida: 3 cups
Oil: 1/4 cup
Dry Yeast / Eno Salt: 1 1/2 teaspoons
Sugar: a pinch
Curd: 1/2 cup
Salt: to taste
Heat a little water (about 1/4 cup), add in the sugar and mix the yeast well until completely dissolved. Meanwhile just roughly beat the eggs. Now take the flour in a large mixing/kneading bowl. Make a centre. Pour the curd, oil, beaten egg, yeast and salt. Keep kneading until it becomes a soft dough. Cover it with a thin wet cloth and keep aside for about 2-3 hours. The dough will rise almost in double.
Heat oil in a for deep frying in a pan. Take the dough, knead it one last time and then make it into balls and flatten using a rolling pin. Slip each of these rolled baturas into hot oil and they will fluff up like a balloon. Turn over both sides and take it off when it starts to turn a little brown. Drain off the excess oil on a tissue paper. Serve hot.

@Sandhya : Well, we dont know if we could replace eggs since we only have this recipe. But we are sure there will lots of other Batura recipes without eggs, specially for all those pure veg folks.

this was our treat for carrying mummys shopping basket from the market after a sunday mass.ReplyDelete
i tried this recipe.. wonderful..(i found this one better than some other recipe i got where they use bicarbonate instead of yeast.) however i feel the yeast quantity is a bit more here. i did not like its smell. also keeping the dough in yeast for more than 2 hours make a bit foul smell.ReplyDelete
