Whole Wheat Bhatura

Whole Wheat Bhatura



Bhatura is basically a fried indian clad bread made with fermented dough. It is usually made with plain flour/Maida is goes best with Chole. But, yesterday while i had planned on preparing a healthy chole bhature, I decided to made my Bhaturas with whole wheat flour and no plain flour.
For oil free Chole you clan check my other post..:)

The moment one thinks of Bhatura, and oil bread made of plain flour/ Maida come to their mind. Which of course I'd not too healthy. Trust me, these Wheat Bharuras came perfect in terms of texture and perfectly puffed too.. :) 

So I'll share how I prepared them.
 
Ingredients
- 2 cups whole wheat flour ( I used my regular multigrain atta)
- 1 medium sized boiled and mashed potato
- 1/2 cup curd
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- very little water to knead
- 1 tsp oil and oil for frying
- salt to taste

Process
1. In a bowl take flour add salt and baking soda,and mix well
2. To this add boiled, 1 tsp oil and mashed potato and curd. Mix everything well.
3. Try to bring together the dough as much as you. An without adding water with curd.
4. Then add little by little and as less as possible water to for a Soft dough out of the mix.
5. Once the dough Is ready, cover the dough with a kitchen towel or any cloth and let it rest for minimum 2 hours.
6. After 2 hours, knead the dough for another minute or so.
7. Now make small balls out of the dough.
8. Heat the oil in pan/wok for frying.
9. Roll the small balls of dough which is neither to thick nor too thin. And fry them till golden brown and puffed from both the sides.

Your amazing and healthy Bhaturas are ready..:)
