For Bhatura's dough

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour / Maida
  • 1/2 cup Semolina / Rava
  • 1/2 cup Curds / Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Cooking Oil for deep frying
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar

For Paneer stuffing

  • 1 cup Paneer grated
  • Salt to Taste
  • 2 no Green Chili finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Garam Masala
  • Handful Coriander Leaves finely chopped


Preparing the dough for Bhatura

  • In a wide bowl, take the maida, rava, curds, salt, baking powder and mix well. Add warm water slowly as required and knead to a stiff dough.
  • Cover the dough and keep aside for 2-3 hours, if you are in a hurry then keep for 30-45 minutes. This ferments the dough.

For the Paneer Stuffing:

  • In a bowl, grate the Paneer, add salt, green chili, Garam masala and green coriander and mix well. Knead to form a ball. Divide into equal balls balls you get from the dough.

Making Bhatura

  • After the dough rests, knead it again and divide into 8 balls. I made with 4 cups and got about 17 balls.
  • Pour the oil in a kadai and let it heat up. Simmer when you are ready to fry the pooris.
  • For filling in the stuffing, flatten a ball on the sides and place the paneer stuffing in the center and ensure you close on all sides tightly.
  • Gently press it on the rolling board by dusting the balls with little flour.
  • Roll into oblong discs and when the oil is hot, gently drop it in. Press the bhatura lightly on top and let it puff up.
  • Then flip it to the other side and cook on that side as well.
  • Once the bhatura is cooked on both sides, drain the poori on a kitchen towel.
  • Serve hot with Aloo Matar Masala or Chole
