It is really heart breaking for me lot many times whenever I see choley bhaturey pics of Indian markets on social media. 😂I really miss India because of the variety of choley bhature its local food market offers.
You can corelate all good bollywood dialogues to choley bhature because “achey choley bhaturey banana ek art hai art”😂
After several years of trying out various recipes I have started making choley bharurey through my own no fail recipe. Initially I spent several hours over phone explaining to all my recipe. Finally I end up in taking out printouts to give and now my blog is here. Now onwards I will give blog link for the no fail recipe.
I sincerely request you all to read my recipe two three times before giving it a try.🙏🏼
If you are short of any single ingredient please do not make it by my recipe. 🙏🏼
