Batura is a soft deep fried Indian bread. This is a breakfast dish which is normally taken in North India and is originated from Punjab. It goes great with Channa masala(Chickpeas curry).


2 Cups all purpose flour
1/2 Cup Fine Semolina
5 Tbsp Curd
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Water
1 tsp Ghee
Oil for deep frying
Extra flour for dusting


Mix in the flour, semolina, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix all these ingredients well.

In another small cup, take curd and add sugar to it. Mix well and add it to the flour mixture.

Add the water and ghee and knead well to form a soft dough.

Close and rest the dough in a warm place for about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile keep oil in a deep pan for heating. Take the dough and make golf sized balls and roll them into circles of about 6 to 7" in diameter.

Slide the rolled dough carefully into the hot oil and just press them lightly with a spatula so that it will swell up like a ball. This will take just few seconds. Flip the poori over and cook the other side until golden brown.

Serve hot with channa masala.
