1kg all-purpose flour
1 tsp dried active yeast
1 egg, beaten
1 can 7 Up
1 tsp salt
Water, as required
1 Place the flour in a bowl and combine with the yeast and salt.
2 Add the beaten egg and mix to combine.
3 Add the full can of 7 Up, and mix.
4 Add more water as required and knead vigorously to achieve a smooth dough.
5 Cover the bowl and place in a warm area for about an hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
6 Separate the dough into 10 evenly sized balls.
7 Roll each ball into a circle about 5mm thick.
8 Allow the rolled circles to rest a while.
9 Heat the oil in a large deep frying pan, over a medium-high heat.
10 Fry the bhaturas one at a time, very carefully. You will know that you have achieved the perfect temperature when the bread puffs within a few seconds.
11 When it’s golden brown on one side, flip and fry the other.
12 Drain the bhaturas on kitchen paper and then serve with your favourite curry.
