BATTOORA- no milk, no yeast, super soft


Ingredients:

  • Maida- 1 big cup
  • Curd-1/2 small cup
  • Egg- 1
  • Salt- to taste
  • Ghee- 2 tbsp
  • Baking powder- 1 tsp ( or 2 tsp if you want the dough to rise within 1 hr)
  • Vegetable oil- enough to deep fry the battoras in a wok
Preparation:
Knead the dough using all above ingredients to a soft dough. If the mixture seems to dry, add in some more curd or milk until you get a soft dough.
Let the dough rest for two hours. Make 5-6 large balls out of the dough. Roll each dough to 1/4'' thickness. Now cut the circle shaped dough into 4 equal portions so that you get a cone shape.
Heat oil in a wok, fry the battooras in the hot oil till it turns golden brown. The oil has to be really hot or the battooras will be too oily and soggy. Serve hot with chicken roast, chicken chilly roast etc.
