Chole bhatura
  1. Some people knead the dough with soda water to get nice puffed bhaturas. In that case do not add baking powder.
  2. Always roll the bhatura thicker, if it is thin it will become flat and won’t puff up.
  3. Ensure the oil is super hot. Else bhaturas  will absorb oil and won’t puff up.
