Bread Bhatura with Chole Masala

Today's recipe is from my dear friend Srivalli's blog. She is the one who started the  Blogging Marathon  which is basically a food marathon where we all cook and post it in our blogs  according to the themes which we choose to do. We run this marathon every month with different themes. Its almost 61 months since this marathon started and  I am part of this marathon since 5th Edition. So glad to be part of this group. Met many bloggers through this group, we are like a family now. Couldn't  meet any one personally  except Pavani Nandula, but hoping to meet everyone one day.

Today is Srivalli's  birthday and we BM family  decided to cook something from her blog and post it. Thought of baking  a cake from her blog  but  as time didn't  permit and kids being sick at home I ended up making"Bread Bhatura" and Chole.  Which  was super tasty, didn't feel like I added bread in  bhatura. Click here for the original recipe from Srivalli's blog  along with Chole  Masala  from here blog too.


Maida / All purpose flour 2 cups
Bread slices 6 to 7
Cumin seeds 1/4 spoon
Salt to taste
Curds / yogurt 2 spoons
Oil for deep frying


Cut  edges of the bread  and pulse in the grinder or mixer to make bread crumbs.
In a mixing bowl add maida , bread crumbs, cumin seeds , salt and curds.
Mix well and add little water at a time to make a stuff dough as poori dough.
Heat oil in deep frying pan.
Make small dumplings of the dough and roll them into 4 to 5 inch diameter.
Deep fry in oil till nice and crisp.
After dropping batura into oil keep pressing on top so that it puffs up completely.
Serve hot with any curry.
I served these hot batura with chole masala  which tasted delicious.

Wishing you once again a very  Happy Birthday Srivalli.
