Kasuri methi baturas – easy indian deep fried bread

When I visited kailas parbat for the first time, something which really piqued my interest were their chole baturas. Of course, it was not the first time, I was coming across or having chole baturas. To tell you the fact, I have had the authentic ones during our stay in Delhi. I have devoured different varieties of them and have really enjoyed them to the core. But here in Kailas parbat, they had something different to offer.

I do buy broccoli quite frequently, not because its a favourite at home. But as its quite healthy and we get really good fresh ones here that I am quite tempted to buy it everytime.
