Recipe for bhature


Maida 1/2 kg
Salt as per taste
1/2 spn ajwain/carrom seeds
Ice cold curd
1tbspn oil

Knead d dough with ice cold curd .while kneading add salt n ajwain. Once d dough is kneaded well apply d oil n let it proof. Once d dough rises u r all set to make ur bhatures.
You make a paneer filling to make paneer bhatures like the ones u get at haldirams. I generally add a lil bit of chole masala to grated paneer n d filling is done.

This is my tried n tested method. Doesn’t absorb oil at all.
