Deep fried flatbreads made with a fermented refined flour dough –best eaten with chole!
Bhature are large fluffy deep fried Indian breads that are usually served with an accompaniment of chole or chickpeas cooked in a spicy masala. They vary from puris because the dough for bhature is way denser. Made with refined flour, yogurt, baking powder and baking soda the dough is left to ferment well before being rolled into round or oval shaped discs and deep-fried. Bhature are one of those few things where indulging in deep fried food seems worth it!
