  • Heat about 1″ of oil in a frying pan over high heat. Batura should be fried in very hot oil. To test, place a small piece of dough in the oil. The dough should float to the top and be light in color.

  • Place one batura in the frying pan and press it down with a foamer, it will puff up like a ball. Flip and cook until light creamy brown on both sides. Take out batura and place them on paper towels to absorb excess oil. Repeat for the remaining batteries.

Notes Be sure to fry baturas in hot oil. If the oil is not hot enough, the batters will be greasy. Serving suggestion I like to serve batters to Punjabi Chola or Palak Paneer
