Shilpi’s Quick Tricks
  • Knead soft, smooth and elastic dough. If dough sticks to your hands take some dry flour while kneading.
  • Add little water at a time while kneading the dough.
    Cover the dough and let it rest for fifteen minutes. After that dough will be much easier to handle.
  • While rolling try to use gentle hands towards the edges. Don't worry it will become small again and again. Before putting it in hot oil either roll it once more or stretch it with your fingers.
    Always fry bhatura in hot oil. If oil is not hot enough bhatura will absorb lot of oil and will not puff up.
  • In the video I have shown the proper technique to make perfectly puff bhatura. Do watch it.
