Kulcha is a traditional preparation made with plain flour and curds. The curds add a yummy tanginess to the kulcha. Here the kulcha has been stuffed with a rich and spicy paneer filling.
It is advisable to keep the dough aside covered with a wet muslin cloth for at least 2 hours to allow it to rise. This will make your kulchas fluffier.
These kulchas are excellent and satiating as a one dish meal . Raitas and Chutneys make an excellent match for these kulchas. When had with a bowl of Dal Amritsari or Panchmel Dal it gives you the satisfaction of having had a wholesome and tasty meal.
- Sieve the flour and salt together in bowl.
- Add the curds, mix well and knead into a soft, smooth dough using enough warm water.
- Cover with a wet muslin cloth and keep aside for 2 to 3 hours.
- Divide the mixture into 10 equal portions and keep aside.
- Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and roll out one portion of the dough into a small circle using some flour for rolling.

- Brush the kulcha lightly with ghee and cook on a hot tava (griddle) on both sides until light brown spots appear on both the sides.
