Whole wheat bhatura, Wheat bhatura without yeast

Whole wheat bhatura is a puffy and fluffy deep fried leavened Indian bread prepared with wheat flour, maida, curd, baking soda and sooji/ rava. Bhatura is traditionally prepared with maida/ all purpose flour and served with chole/ chana masala but to keep it healthy and break the boredom I tried making the same with whole wheat flour( a small qauntity of maida as well) and it was really yummy and surely much different from regular poori. In this bhatura without yeast recipe I have added little maida/ all purpose flour just to make sure it doesn’t taste like poori.

Bhatura is commonly prepared with yeast but in this recipe I have used just baking soda just like the regular bhatura and got best results as seen in the images. If you are planning to make bhatura at home plan ahead as the dough needs 3 hours rest time which brings the bhatura the much needed texture and taste. So let’s get to the making of bhatura without yeast!
