Bhatoore

So it was on this Friday, that my wife made “Chole Bhature” for the first time and it turned out great. We were talking to my brother-in-law back in India and telling them how wonderful “Chole Bhature” we made at home. Our Boudi (sister-in-law in Bengali) asked us the recipe and gave us the idea of posting a video of it on YouTube. We did the video with my phone camera, posted on youtube and shared with friends and family on Facebook and Orkut. It then gave us the idea to start this blog of our experiences with cooking.

Bhatoore is Indian fried bread made from dough of all purpose flour (called Maida in Hindi/Bengali). Bhatoore is best enjoyed with “Chole”. “Chole” is curried chick peas cooked in a blend of indian spices. This post is just about how to make the Bhatoora. This delicacy is most popular in northern India in states of Delhi, Punjab,  Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and their neigbouring states.

The secret of bhatoora lies in kneading the dough with various ingredients. There are a lots of variation of how to make the dough. If you are trying this at home, feel free to experiment according to your style. For the recipe we used, check out the video of Bhatura I shot with my iPhone while my wife was making it. I used the AudioSwap feature of YouTube to replace the audio of the video and it doesnt look bad.

A few indian terms in the video:
Maida – All purpose flour
Sooji -Semolina
Curd – Yogurt
Raita – Yogurt diluted with water, salt, cumin powder, black pepper powder etc. Raita is essentialy diluted yogurt blended with some spices.
