KULCHA

 

Kulcha are Indian flatbreads similar to naan, but the key difference between them is that they are made using maida or a refined white flour whereas naan tends to be made with a wheat flour.  Naan dough is leavened with yoghurt and yeast to make it soft and light, whereas kulcha dough is not.  This makes an especially yummy breakfast dish!

Ingredients :

  1. All purpose flour - 2 cups
  2. Sugar - 1 tsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Baking powder - 1 tsp
  5. Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
  6. Oil - 2 tsp
  7. Water, as required
  8. Yoghurt / curd - 1/4 cup
  9. Water, as required
  10. Coriander leaves, chopped
  11. Butter 

Method :



1.  Mix together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, oil & water.  Knead & rest the dough for 2 hrs.

2.  After 2 hrs, knead the dough & divide them equally into small balls.

3.  Sprinkle some coriander leaves on each dough ball & roll them into desired shapes.

4.  Brush water on one side & cook the kulcha on either sides over medium heat.

5.  Finally add some butter on either sides of kulcha & serve.


Serve warm.
