Buckwheat Bathura

buckwheat chaolay bathura fried indian bread quick and easy

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

  1. Knead the ingredients into a smooth elastic dough, cover and allow to sit for about 15-20 minutes
  2. Meanwhile, heat some oil for frying the bathura
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Serve warm with a few sides like Mutter-Tofu curry, Paneer Kofta Curry, Cholay, Dal, chutneys...
