Quick, Instant bhatura recipe with eno

Quick and instant bhatura recipe – Eno fruit salt is used while making bhatura instead of yeast. Bhatura is deep fried, puffed Indian bread.

Today’s bhatura recipe is the quicker version. No fermentation is needed. To replace the yeast, I have added Eno fruit salt. Dough needs only 30 minutes resting time. After that start rolling and frying the bhaturas. Within 40-45 minutes you will have piping hot bhatura ready to serve.

The texture of the bhatura is just fantastic. You won’t have to compromise in terms of taste and texture. It has crispy top with soft and fluffy bottom or inside.

I have already shared traditional bhatura recipe. In that bhatura recipe, I have made homemade yeast mixture which needs to ferment overnight. So to make the traditional version of bhatura, one needs to be pre-planned.

Usually bhatura are made with all purpose flour. But in this recipe I have used half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour. So it is very little on healthier side.

Bhatura is traditionally served with punjabi chole. Chole bhature is usually served as a breakfast. Now no one (including me) can afford to have this kind of heavy breakfast in this modern lifestyle. So I usually make this as a weekend lunch or sometimes as a dinner.
