Bhature is a deep fried North Indian bread prepared generally using refined flour or all purpose flour. I thought of trying the same using wheat flour as its comparatively healthy, yet tasty & yummy!

Try it out & do post your valuable comments!!!

Prep Time: 10 min

Fermenting Time: 4 hrs

Cooking time: 20 min

Serves: 3

  1. Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
  2. Sooji - 1 1/4 tbsp
  3. Curd - 2 tbsp
  4. Salt - 1 tsp
  5. Sugar - 1/2 tsp
  6. Baking powder - 1 tsp
  7. Water - nearly a cup to knead the dough
  8. Oil - to deep fry
  1. Combine all the above listed ingredients to prepare a soft dough.
  2. Cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for 4 hrs.
  3. Pinch off dough, make lemon sized balls and roll into thick oval shaped rotis.
  4. Heat oil in wok on medium flame; once hot enough, slide the bhature in to the oil along the sides.
  5. By using the back of the ladle gently press down the center portion and the edges seem to puff up simultaneously.
  6. Flip and deep fry the other side until light golden brown; do not deep fry longer as the bhature might get charred.
  7. Transfer contents to kitchen tissues to drain excess oil.
  8. Serve hot with Batata Humman or any side dish of your choice.
  • The oil has to be hot enough before deep frying the bhatures; or else they become soggy absorbing too much oil.
  • Strictly follow the fermentation time for best results.
