Aloo Kulcha is a delicious, flavour-packed Indian bread , which is stuffed with a tasty, mildly-tangy potato mixture.
A sprinkling of black sesame seeds and chopped coriander on the rolled dough boosts the aroma and flavour of the Aloo Kulcha manifold.
When cooked on the tava, these ingredients get toasted and give out an awesome aroma. Make sure to brush the kulchas with a little butter before serving, to make the taste even richer!
