Bhatura

$2.50

Whole wheat puffed bread, deep fried.

A huge bhatura looks some what like puri or poori but big in size. Many gets confused or do not know the difference between a puri and bhatura. Its just simple, bhatura is made of all-purpose flour adding baking powder and yoghurt to give a sweet and salty taste and is huge in size where as puri is made of whole wheat flour (atta flour) and is small in size. Puri can be eaten with any Indian vegetable gravy dish but bhatura is mostly combined with Chole.
