I love buckwheat flour, am not sure why... I mean, I know its many virtues, and that could be the reason.
Bathura is a lightly fried Indian bread, usually made with whole wheat flour. This bathura recipe is not very different from my older one, except I used a combination of buckwheat flour and whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour.
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp canola oil
water or buttermilk as needed
salt to taste
- Knead the ingredients into a smooth elastic dough, cover and allow to sit for about 15-20 minutes
- Meanwhile, heat some oil for frying the bathura
- When ready, divide the dough into roughly golf-ball-sized rounds, then flatten out with a rolling pin to about ¼ inch thick, dusting with flour as needed
- Fry one at a time till it puffs up and turns darker, flip or dunk the bathura in oil to make sure both sides are cooked, drain
- Serve warm with a few sides like Mutter-Tofu curry, Paneer Kofta Curry, Cholay, Dal, chutneys...
