Whole wheat ( atta ) flour Batura

Whole wheat ( atta ) flour Batura - A delicious deep fried Indian bread !!!

Makes: 8 - 9


1 cup / 200 ml whole wheat ( atta ) flour (Indian standard measuring cup of 200 ml / 8 oz capacity

60 ml curd

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon oil

1/4 cup water (for dough)

Oil for deep frying ( approximately 250 ml oil )


Mix sugar, salt, oil and curd. Add flour into it. Mix well and bind a soft dough. Add extra 1 - 2 tablespoon water if required to make a soft dough.

Keep aside, covered for 4 -5 hours ( recommending to keep in a Tupperware container / box ) .

Knead the batura dough again and divide into 8 portions. Flatten them to make rounds ( just like puri) with the help of little dry flour.

In a kadai / frying pan,  heat oil. Reduce heat to medium and fry batura one at a time till it puffs up. Turn over till both sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve with chole or any gravy dishes of your choice.
