Stuffed Aloo Bhatura Recipe - Aloo Bhatura Recipe

I love bhatura, but i dont make it very often these days. Since it is fried, i make it very rare. Few days back i was craving for it, so made it and serve with dahi aloo. I have shared few version of bhatura before, all the time i dont use yeast in it.  But this time  i decided to make it with yeast and it turned out so soft and spongy. 

I made plain bhatura as well stuffed one. I used a spicy and tangy potato filling in this, you can use paneer as well. I have one more version of bhatura in which a starter is used instead of yeast and it is a authentic punjabi recipe, will be sharing it next time..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
