Quick No Yeast Bhature | Fluffy Indian Fried Bread

I don't have time to make the dough and rest it and make bhatura, so when all recipes asked to make dough with yeast and rest it for good 2-3 hours, well it's not suits my schedule. In 2-3 hours my kids will have dinner and go to bed. So when I was looking for no yeast without resting recipe of bhatura, I find nothing. Then I read somewhere to add potatoes in flour and make the dough and you don't need to rest it , so came home, make chole, make khichdi and kadhi for hubby because he wanted to eat light and before that I made dough with potato and I added AP flour and whole wheat flour while the potato was warm so there was no need to add water and dough was soft enough. I boiled potato in the microwave to save some time and it was done in 5 minutes. So in 45 minutes, I made chole bhatura, Khichdi, kadhi and kids had fun eating this. So try it this quick no yeast recipe of bhatura.

Ingredients :

1 big boiled potato
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
Salt as per taste
2 tbsp. oil
Oil for Frying


Mesh boiled potatoes nicely, add both the flours, salt, and oil and knead the dough.
Rest it for 5-10 minutes.

Make golf size balls and make a circle as per your wish, I made big bhatura so I had it 10 if you wish you can make a small size.
Heat the oil in a big pan.
When the oil is hot, fry bhatura till its brown on one side, flip it and cook on the other side.
Take it out on a paper towel and finish all bhatura.
Serve with chole, pickle, and onion.


  1. Wow... that really sounds interesting... something that I would love to make since making batturas for me is also very dicey thanks to the resting time...

    1. thanks Rafeeda, thats true with work and resting dough idea don't go together.

  2. looks so yummy...feeling hungry again

  3. We love Indian food and I'm sure my family would love to try this, looks fabulous:-)

  4. I like the idea of making bhatura quickly by adding potatoes. My SIL adds a couple of slices of bread to the bhatura dough and it seems to work. Not tried it myself though.

    1. Thanks Minaben, will try bread idea too sometime.

  5. This is a lovely yeast free bhatura recipe and they look perfect in texture
