For me, well…this dish conjures up images of the huge van near our college called Caterwheels, which as the name suggests, was a food van, dishing out fresh food to it’s numerous customers. We were a bit skeptical the first time we saw this monstrous but chick van, a bit apprehensive as well to try anything from it. But those who were adventurous enough to do so, seemed to go back again and again…word soon spread and your’s truly was finally seduced for good.
From then on, every lunch time, we would make a mad dash to queue and savour the delightful dishes they had to offer. For me it was usually chole- bhaturas… some of the best I’ve ever had and combined with the rather relative low price, for a student with limited pocket money, what more could one ask for!
The following is my version of bhaturas…will post the chole recipe later.
1/2 C yogurt
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tblsp oil
Add yogurt, milk,baking powder and oil to flour and make a soft dough. Keep aside, covered, for preferably 8 hours. Can be left overnight.
Make small balls, roll into thick puris and deep fry.
