Bhatura :

2 cup maida
baking powder less than half spoon
salt to taste
sugar 1 tspn
1/4 cup sooji
3/4 cup of buttermilk
2 tbspn hot oil
mix with water or milk...make it tight.
Rest for 2 hour covered

roll it even on all sides...
after you put bhatura in hot it with spoon so that it puffs up.Oil should be really hot else your bhatura wont puff up like a balloon.
Due to small size of kadai (Wok) I was able to make small bhaturas.If you have a big wok then use it with 3/4   filled oil.

1/2 cup Chick peas soaked in water over night
1 medium onion
1 tomato
