Kulchas might taste heavenly and feel exotic, but the fact is that they are not difficult to make, if only you know the right method. Here is an easy-to-follow recipe to make perfectly-textured kulchas.
The secret lies in handling the yeast properly. Make sure the water is warm, and not too hot or cold, because that will fail to activate the yeast. Once you see bubbles after five minutes or so, it means your yeast mixture is ready to use.
Now, just follow the rest of the procedure to make tasty Paneer Kulchas stuffed with a succulent mixture of crumbled and spiced paneer.
All in all a completely lip smacking kulcha which can be enjoyed with curds , pickles and chutney. Chole or dals like Dal Makhani and Moong Dal with Spinach also make a good combo with the Paneer Kulchas.
