Bhatura

That is a picture of my favorite, and easiest to make Bhatura recipe I have, which I got from Betty Crocker's Indian Home Cooking. What I like most about this recipe, is that it doesn't use yeast, which I rarely have on hand! I try to keep from making it often, since It's made with white flour, and fried, but sometimes, It's a nice change :) I haven't had a recipe from this book fail me yet, and I continue to return to it over and over! The chickpeas were a last second save from a recipe I found online, which didn't turn out the way I was expecting... I threw in some last second spices and it turned out great!
