Bhatura is a deep-fried leavened bread popular in India and Pakistan. It is usually served with a spicy curry or chana masala. Bhatura is made from a dough of maida flour, yogurt, baking soda, and salt. The dough is kneaded until it is soft and then left to rise for several hours. After rising, the dough is divided into small balls and rolled out into flat circles. The circles are then deep-fried in hot oil until they are golden brown and puffy. Bhatura is usually served hot with chana masala, a spicy chickpea curry.
