Aloo Matar Kulcha

Kulcha is a type of Indian flat bread made with a either maida flour or with a combination of maida or whole wheat flour, its quite popular in North India and its usually baked in an clay oven until its turns golden brown, since its not that much easier to get a clay oven here, i went for stove top for cooking this kulchas which i stuffed with a spicy aloo matar masala, this kulchas tastes spicy, delicious at the same time,also its quite an easy flatbread which can be conserved two or three days in fridge, everyone at home enjoyed just having the kulchas with thick curd spices with a simple tadka and we loved it..

Aloo Matar Kulcha

2cups Maida flour
1/4cup Milk
1/4cup Yogurt
1tsp Baking soda
1tsp Nigella seeds
Salt
2tbsp Oil

For Aloo matar masala:
2nos Potatoes (cooked)
1/2cup Green peas
1no Onions (big & chopped)
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Coriander powder
1tsp Garam masala powder
2tsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt
1/2tsp Fennel seeds
Oil

Heat oil, fry the fennel seeds, saute the onions and salt until the onions turns transculent, now add the green peas, chilly powder, coriander powder and garam masala,cook everything simmer until the veggies get half cooked, add the cooked and smashed potatoes, saute everything for few minutes..finally add the coriander leaves and put off the stove..keep aside and let them cool, makes 6-8 medium sized balls of this masala..

Meanwhile make the dough for kulchas, combine all the ingredients except the oil and nigella seeds, make a smooth and soft dough,keep aside for an hour..Knead again the dough and make 6-8medium sized balls, flatten the ball with a rolling pin, gently place the already prepared masala ball, cover the stuffing with the dough and roll again as flat disc..brush the kulchas with oil, sprinkle the nigella seeds..

Heat a tawa,once its hot..gently place the kulchas (no need of drizzling the oil) and cook on both sides until they turns golden brown..Enjoy with any sort of side dishes..
