Paneer Stuffed Bhatura is a delicious deep fried Indian Pooris made with All Purpose flour stuffed with fresh Indian Cottage Cheese.
These stuffed paneer bhaturas are good to enjoy as such though we can serve it with chole or aloo. I have adapted this from here and got to know this is a specialty from a street vendor and is hot selling dish not easily available all the time.
Batura stuffed with paneer makes a wonderful breakfast or brunch dish for a relaxed and lazy Sunday morning. If you forget to soak the chole ahead, go ahead and make the No Onion No Garlic Aloo Matar masala.
We are starting the week 2 of BM#114, where I will be sharing my next three alphabets in the A to Z Indian Pooris. This month it is going to be P, Q, R. I had other choices like Pudina Poori, Peethiwali Poori, Pumpkin Masala Poori.
Although you can make this for breakfast, I made this for dinner and everybody enjoyed it so much. I had told my boys ahead that I was making it and they agreed to try it. They had only the pooris on its own and said it tasted delicious as such.
Bhatura or Bhatoora or Bhature or batura as we call this deep fried pooris are typically made with all purpose flour fermented with curds and baking powder. This dough calls for about 3 to 4 hours of resting.
