Easy Bhatura Recipe / Bhatura without Yeast Recipe

Hope everyone had a awesome weekend and enjoying a great Monday now..I had quite a busy Saturday..As a result of that we went to a famous restaurant  in our place called 'PRABHU' on Sunday..We ordered their famous Parota, Chicken 65, Aapam & Mutton chukka. It was mouthwateringly delicious.. Then we went to again a famous icecream parlour 'WARRANCE' and enjoyed the best icecreams like jelly icecream, chocolate sundae, blackcurrent..It was so yummy..We totally enjoyed the day..

Now back to recipe..Anything deep fried is mine and my sweet heart's favorite. Starting my Samosa to Bhaturas, we drool for this..I made this some days back for dinner and served it along side with a spicy chana masala.. My god the combo was amazing and hubby loved it a lot and even thanked me for doing this for him. He even requested me to do this more often, because as a food blogger I don't repeat making the same dishes over and over again, He knows that..

I have two variations of chana masala in my blog, you can make any one of it..For recipe for both check this link and this link..I hope you will love this and tell me how it turned out for you..

Baking soda is baking powder or metha soda?or its something else? Kindly explain

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Baking Powder is different from Baking Soda. Baking soda is khara soda or Meetha soda. You can also use Eno Fruit salt. Baking Powder on the other hand is used for breads, it makes the batter rise.
