Stuffed Aloo Kulchas

Kulcha is a typical north indian bread usually eaten with choles..they are prepared with maida flour . Flour dough, mashed potatoes, onion and lots of spices are rolled into a flat round bread and baked in an earthen clay oven until golden brown. When baked, it is rubbed with butter and then eaten with spicy chole...Since a long, i was craving for this kulchas which i had long back in India, even its easy to prepare i never tried it here at home, this time i want to prepare absolutely for RCI-Lucknow guest hosted by Lavi by Home Cook's Recipes, event started by Lakshmi. I didnt prepared completely this kulchas with maida flour, i mixed both maida flour and wheat flour to make this delicious kulchas n stuffed it with simple potato filling, and cooked in pan until they get well cooked instead of oven which replace the Indian clay ovens..



Kulcha Dough:
2+1/2cups Wheat flour
1cup Maida flour
3/4cup Luke warm milk
1/4cup Curd
1+1/2tsp Yeast
1tbsp Sugar
1tsp Baking powder
2tbsp Butter
Salt

Add the yeast, lukewarm milk, sugar n salt in a cup,mix well n let it stand for 15 minutes, until they turns foamy..now mix everything in a large bowl as stiff dough n keep aside with a lid, place the large bowl in a warm place n let it stand for two hours, until the dough double their volume..



Potato Masala:
3nos Potatoes(cooked n smashed)
1no Onion (chopped)
2nos Green chillies(chopped)
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
2tbsp Coriander leaves
1tsp Lime juice
Salt

Take the smashed potatoes in a large vessel, add the chopped onion, green chillies, cumin seeds, coriander leaves, lime juice and salt n mix everything well with ur hands..make small balls out of this masala n keep aside..

Stuffed Aloo Kulchas:
Knead the doubled dough until it turns soft, make 13-15 lemon sized balls out of the dough,dust the balls with maida flour and roll it as small circles, place the potato masala..cover the dough well else the potato masala will squeeze out while rolling again..roll the potato stuffed dough with rolling pins...heat a hot tawa/pan, drizzle few drops of oil or ghee n cook the stuffed kulchas until they get well cooked..

Serve hot with spicy chole!
