  3. We love bhaturas with chole and I love the fluffy texture of them. Your bhaturas have fluffed up really well.

  4. Being from North India Chole Bhature is one of our favourite combo for brunch or breakfast.. The bhaturas look so fluffy and super soft. Must have been a treat with the chatpate chole on the side.

  5. The bhaturas look delicious. Love the heartshaped one!! I don't usually make bhaturas as most recipes are complicated. Yours is very easy to follow.

    1. Thanks Mina.. do try them once.. easy and light. They don't even soak oil.
      BTW .. the heartshaped one just happened by itself.. did not even notice until you mentioned.
