Battura

"Battura" is a vintage recipe in Punjabi Cuisine. It is a deep fried flat bread usually served with channa masala, a classic combination in Indian cuisine. 


Ingredients

2 cups Maida
1/4 cup Semolina | Fine rava | Chiroti Rava
1/4 cup Yogurt
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Yeast
Warm Water

Method

  • In a mixing bowl, mix maids, semolina, yogurt, sugar, salt and yeast.
  • Add warm water to knead the dough. The dough should be very soft

  • Cover the dough and leave it for 1 to 2 hours until dough rises

  • Now divide dough into equal portions and roll them into balls 

  • Take  a ball of dough and using a rolling pin roll it into thick circular shape (I have rolled it into puri size about 5 inches in diameter)

  • Heat oil in a heavy bottom vessel
  • Gently leave the rolled batturas in oil. Fry it evenly on both sides. 


  • Use an absorbent paper to drain excess oil
  • Serve hot with channa masala
