Bhatura recipe, Bhatoora recipe, How to make Batura

Bhatura (batura, bhatoora) is a puffy fried Indian bread made with maida, sooji and curd that is usually served with channa masala/ chole masala. Bhatura/ Batura is very easy to make at home as the ingredients used are so basic and are always available in the kitchen. one thing I like mostly about Bhatura is that it tastes completely different from regular poori and also the puffiness it long lasting puffiness it achieves is a really thrill for any cook i feel. Yes that 1 minute party when the bhatura puff up like balloons makes all the hard work worthy. Channa batura has been my favorite recipe from childhood and from the time I started making this at home I seldom eat this at restaurants. So lets get to the making!
