2 cups All Purpose flour ( maida)
1 ½ tbsp Suji
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Baking powder
¾ Cup Yogurt
1 tsp Sugar
1 tbsp oil + oil for deep frying
How to Make:
1) Take a large bowl and pour All Purpose flour in it.
2) Add Suji (Semolina), salt and mix it well.
3) Mix Yogurt with sugar and baking powder and add to the flour.
4) Knead the flour and make soft but pliable dough without adding water. (As I have not added water i used only curd to make dough).
5) Once the dough comes together, apply oil all over the dough and keep kneading for about 2-3 minutes to make it smooth and elastic.
6) Dough should be stiff enough to roll without extra flour.
7) Our dough is ready.
8) Now cover it with wet cloth and leave to rest for an hour.
9) knead it again and make small balls of the dough and spread little oil on it so that while rolling it will not stick with the rollers.
10) Take one ball of dough and roll it like puri but this needs to be kept thicker than poori.
11) Repeat the same process to roll out all Bhaturas.
12) Heat oil in a pan until it becomes very hot. Put Bhatura and slightly press the top of it with a spatula so that it will swell up like a ball.
13) This should take only a few seconds. Flip the Bhatura over and cook the other side until golden brown.
14) Take out on absorbent paper and serve.
15) Serve hot Chole Bhature , onion and lemon wedges
