  1. Bhatura are my most favourite, i dont even bother whether they are yeasted or not, just need that plate rite now to enjoy and finish those tempting bhatures without any fuss. Lovely.

  2. drooling over your chola bhatura platter..the bhaturas look perfectly made , and have a great texture..I could eat them just by themselves..though the cholas look absolutely stunning too. Do share the chola recipe too.

  3. That is a lovely recipe for yeast free bhatura. Would love to try it some time. Also the black chana curry sounds just perfect to serve with the bhatura. Yummy combination.

  4. I too make bhature this way sometimes when I am out of yeast. Love this tempting combi but I always use white chickpeas and never used the black ones.
