It IS that delicious and tempting!
My aunt makes these the best, and I got her secret recipe!
Super simple, lip-smacking delicious and quick!
A must must try!
5 - 10 Minutes
3 - 4 Hours
4.5 - 5 Hours (including the fermenting time)
Mix the yeast in luke - warm water and set aside for atleast 5 - 10 minutes.
Mix together the maida, ghee, dahi and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the yeasted water to the flour and knead well for 5 minutes atleast.
Make the dough a little stiffer than a roti dough, and do not over-knead it.
Cover with a moist tea towel and set aside for atleast 3-4 hours. The dough should have doubled in size by now.
Heat oil in a kadai.
Deflate the dough, take a small amount of dough and shape it round, like a table-tennis ball.
Using little flour, roll it out into rotis.
Once the oil is heated (test it by dropping a small amount of the dough into the oil. If it surfaces immediately, then the oil is at a perfect temperature) slide this roti into it and allow it to cook on both sides (approximately 1 minute each side).
The bhaturas should be golden - brown coloured.
Tastes best with Punjabi Chole.
Definitely makes the bhaturas more fluffy and soft.
