Bhatura or Bhature Recipe

                                                        Bhatura or Bhature is a deep fried Indian bread very popular in north India and especially in Punjab.It is very similar to poori which is made with wheat flour but the bhaturas are made with Maida(refined fllour).
It is usually served with Channa masala or Chole,some Sliced onions and lemon wedges.It is a very tasty dish and Most kids would love it.In restaurants they make a plate size Large Poori but at home people make half the size of it.
