Stuffed Kulchas/ Indian Bread- Punjabi Special

For this June month’s ICC- Indian Cooking Challenge, Srivalli chose Punjabi Speciality i.e Stuffed Kulcha. Through this link, I got a general idea about this recipe. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe with us. Under this recipe, I prepared two types of stuffing, one with onion and second with paneer or cottage cheese.

  • For Kulchas Dough:-
3 cup maida (refine flour)
½ tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda or meetha soda
1 tbsp. sugar
Salt to taste
¼ cup oil
1 tbsp. ghee
½ cup yogurt
  • For Onion Stuffing:-
1 large onion (finely chopped)
2-3 green chillies (finely chopped)
1 tbsp. green coriander (finely chopped)
¼ tsp. ajwain or carom
¼ tsp. cumin seeds
Salt to taste
  • For Paneer Stuffing:-
1 cup grated cottage cheese or paneer
Salt to taste
½ tsp. Red chillies
1 green chilli (finely chopped)
½ tsp. chaat masala

  • For Paneer Stuffing:-
Combine all ingredients into one bowl and mix well. For more crispy taste, you can add chopped onion.
  • For Onion Stuffing:-
Combine all the ingredients into one bowl and mix well.
  • For Kulchas Dough:-
Combine all the ingredients of dough into same bowl and add water for making soft dough. Keep this dough for 2-3 hours for fermented. Then divide the dough into small and equal portion and make rounds of each them. Roll it out into small round shape with the help of rolling pin same as like chapati or roti. Now place the stuffing in the centre of the rolled chapati and close the all side of roti. Press it down. Now again roll it dough like chapati slowly with the help of rolling pin.
Heat the non-stick tawa on the medium flame. When the tawa is hot enough, place kulcha on the tawa carefully. Turn it and spread little oil or butter on the top and flip it again. Do same with other side. Cook for 5 minutes. Spread butter at the time of serving and serve hot with chole’s and chutney.
