Ingredients

For the Kulcha –

  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • ¼ cup Yogurt
  • ¼ cup Warm milk more or less needed to make soft dough
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Baking soda
  • to taste Salt

For the filling –

  • 2 large Potatoes
  • 1 Green chili chopped finely – (I did not use it)
  • 1 Onion small, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Red chili powder
  • ¾ tsp Cumin powder
  • ½ tsp Chat masala
  • to taste Salt
  • 3 tbsp Cilantro finely chopped

Instructions

  • Combine all the dry ingredients mentioned under the dough ingredients. Now add the oil and yogurt and mix well.
  • Add the warm milk slowly and knead to make soft dough. The dough will be sticky at first and upon kneading it will become soft and smooth.
  • Cover the dough and keep it aside to rest for at least an hour.
  • Boil and peel the potatoes. Using a fork, mash the potatoes well.
  • To the mashed potatoes, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Make equal size balls out of it and keep it aside.
  • Divide the rested dough into 10-12 equal size balls.
  • Roll it out to a small puri size circle and then place the filling ball inside the rolled dough.
  • Gather the dough from all the sides and pinch the seam on the top. Now roll out this filled dough into a thick circle.
  • Cook it on the heated tawa by applying oil on both the sides until it is golden brown.
  • Remove from the tawa and keep it warm until ready to serve.
  • I served the Amritsari Kulcha with Dal Makhani and the combination worked great!
