Especially making baturas was a challenge and it came out so well that i recommended all my cousins to make it. u wont be dissapointed except as someone in the comments wrote i kept the dough for 4 hours before making it. it came out wonderful

I would ferment the dough a bit longer, even overnight. Leave the dough in a bowl and coat it with a bit of oil, and cover it with saran wrap removing as much air as possible. Adds a slight sour taste to the batura and it is healthier.

this was a good recipe.i followed the comments and used only milk as required to knead the dough.also i added 3/4 cup of semloina to the dough, it makes the batura crispier. thanx for posting this recipe! we enjoyed it!

Recipe was good except that we followed the recipe exactly as mentioned and we found out that the dough became too `watery` (we should have read the comments section). May be the recipe should call for add as much milk as necessary for the required consistency. Hopefully the recipe owner can correct this to avoid others from making the same mistakes.

My husband liked this preparation. Thanks a lot. However I tried this receipe with self raising flour as I couldn`t get maida & didn`t use baking powder. Anyhow iI should say that it came out well. Thanks once again for this wonderful receipe.

The curry was really good. But the Batoora dough I made became too thin and soft. I guess its because of too much milk (1 cup). Anyway, I am going to try making the batoora`s again, and this time with 1/2 cup milk.

Excellent recipe. As commented by someone else also, I needed only 1/2 cup milk. I made the baturas 4 hours after preparing the dough. They turned out very fluffy and soft.

We got very good baturas with this recipe -- better than we ate in any hotel; and it was the first time we ever tried baturas. However, only about 1/2 cup milk was needed for the dough.
