  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour/ Maida
  • 2 Tablespoon Semolina (Sooji)
  • 3 Tablespoon Yogurt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoon Oil
  • Oil For Deep Frying


  • In a mixing bowl, add all the above ingredients and knead it to a soft dough with the help of lukewarm water. Cover it with a wet kitchen towel and keep aside in a hot and dry place for resting for at least 4 hours.
  • Divide the dough into equal parts and make round balls of it. Roll every Bhatura into circle of 4-5 inch diameter and fry them in hot oil till both side are nice golden.
  • Serve hot and enjoy with Punjabi chole, pickled onion and Green chillies.


  • Always Add yogurt which is at room temperature, not coming straight out of fridge.
  • Bhatura shape can vary depending upon the softness of dough. So don’t worry if they are not coming perfect rounds.
  • Always fry them on high heat as they can absorb oil if fried on low heat and also will not puff perfectly.
