Onion Kulcha

2015-01-04 19.20.31

For the third day for the bread stubs, I am preparing kulcha.  Instead of plain kulcha, I thought of preparing onion kulcha. I love kulchas as they are easy to make at home. Its pretty much like bhatoora dough but with less curd and addition of milk. I usually let it sit for 4 hrs and I have used active yeast when I don’t have baking soda and baking powder. It comes out well. I have tried with and without yeast.

  • Make balls from the dough and roll into round shape. Now sprinkle a little of onions, cilantro and sesame seeds and roll it one more time so that they all stick together.

  • Now heat the tawa and cook the kulcha as usual like roti. The only thing is spread the oil nicely on the top of the kulcha while flipping them. You can use butter also.
  • Thats it, yummy kulcha is ready.
