Namaskar Welcome to
Chole Bhature is liked by all
and if the Bhatura is stuffed with Paneer then one likes it even more.
Today we will prepare Paneer Stuffed Bhatura.
Ingredients required :
Flour(maida) - 2 cups
Suji (semolina) - 1/4 cup
Curd - 1/4 cup
Baking soda - a little more than 1/4 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Green chilly - 1 (finely chopped)
Ginger - 1/2 " long piece (grated)
Paneer - 100 grams
Green coriander - 2 tbsp (finely chopped)
Oil - to fry Bhatura
First we will knead the flour to prepare Paneer Stuffed Bhature.
Add Suji to flour then make a little crater in the center.
Put curd, baking soda, sugar
1/2 tsp salt (save some to use for Paneer stuffing)and 3 tsp oil in this crater.
Mix all the ingredients thoroughly knead a soft dough gradually using warm water.
Keep pressing the dough that you have prepared for 4-5 minutes till it turns smooth.
The dough becomes so smooth that it does not even stick to your fingers.
We have prepared soft dough and used 1/2 cup water for doing so.
Cover the dough and keep aside for 10-12 hours, only then we will make Bhature from it.
. During summers the dough can be covered and left aside for 4-5 hours.
But during winters if we are preparing the Bhature in the morning
then the dough needs to be prepared the previous night and kept in a warm place to ferment.
Here we will use the dough prepared and fremented before hand to make Bhature.
Dough has fermented properly and we need to punch it a little.
Heat oil and let us make the Paneer filling.
Grate paneer or break it into small pieces with your hands.
Add coriander leaves, salt, green chilly and ginger to it.
Mix all these ingredients thoroughly, Paneer filling is ready.
To make Bhature break off lemon (small) sized pieces from the dough.
Apply some dry flour with your hands.
Now that the dough pieces are ready we will stuff them with the Paneer stuffing.
Expand the dough piece with your hands
then place 1-1 1/2 spoon of Paneer stuffing on it.
Wrap up the pieces from all sides and close it.
Similarly stuff all the dough pieces with the Paneer stuffing.
Now that all the pieces are stuffed we will roll then fry them.
Take some dry flour and coat the stuffed piece with it, dust excess flour.
Gently press with your fingers to spread out the filling evenly.
Gently roll
we are rolling Bhature in an oval shape
Oil is heated
we can check by seeing if there is any smoke coming out of the oil.
We need sufficiently heated oil to fry Bhaturas.
We can also put a small piece of dough in oil to check if it is hot.
if the piece floats on the surface it means the oil is sufficiently hot else it sinks to the bottom.
Put Bhatura in hot oil
press with a ladle to make Bhatura puffy.
Turn Bhatura over as it is fried on the lower side.
Fry Bhatura till it turns light brown on both sides then take it out.
These Stuffed Bhaturas need to be kept a bit thick.
We have made these Bhature using Paneer filling
we can also use potato filling to make Aloo Stuffed Bhature in the same manner.
Panner Stuffed Bhature are ready.
It is very easy to prepare this recipe, just remember a few things :
After rolling Bhature oil should be sufficiently heated only then Bhature should be fried.
Serve Paneer Stuffed Bhature with Chole, Chutney and Pickle.
