    YouTube - Battura Recipe by Manjula, Indian Vegetarian Gourmet


    • 2 cups all-purpose flour (plain flour or maida)
    • 4 tablespoons sooji (semolina flour)
    • 2 teaspoons yeast
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons yogurt
    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 3/4 cup lukewarm water (adjust 1 or 2 spoons as needed)
    Also needed:

    • Oil to fry
    • 1/4 cup flour for rolling

    1. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water and let it sit for 10 minutes or until the mixture becomes frothy.
    2. Add sooji, sugar, and salt to the flour and mix well.
    3. Next mix oil and yogurt with flour. Add yeast water to the flour and make into soft dough; add more water as needed to make soft pliable dough.
    4. Cover the dough and keep in a warm place for 3-4 hours. The dough should become almost double in volume.
    5. Knead the dough well and divide the dough into 8 equal parts.
    6. Shape dough into ***** and roll into roughly 6 or 7 inch circles. Dust lightly with dry flour to help with the rolling.
    7. Heat the oil in a frying pan on high heat. To check if oil is hot enough place a small piece of dough in oil and dough should floats to top right away.
    8. The frying pan should have at least 11/2 inch of oil.
    9. Place the Batura in the frying pan and press it with a skimmer. This will make batura puff like a ball. Turn the batura; batura should be light creamy brown on both sides. Take the batura out and place them on paper towel to absorb the extra oil. Be sure to fry the batura in hot oil, otherwise batura will be very greasy.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
