Amritsari Aloo Kulcha

Kulcha is a typical punjabi recipe, which have its origin in Punjab, this Indian flatbread is made usually with maida flour and its often eaten with chole, a type Punjabi channa masala..Amritsar is known for its kulchas which is prepared with a flour dough, mashed potatoes, finely chopped onions and with a variety of spices which is rolled as flat round shape and baked in clay oven until they turns golden brown which is quite hard when we live in abroad, so sometimes i'll go for oven or else in stove top..Stove top cooking makes the life easier and even this time i went for stove top cooking..We loved this aloo kulcha simply with thick yogurt and we loved it..This Amritsari Aloo kulcha goes usually for a double dough which is finally stuffed with a spicy potato mixture, i skipped this double dough and i went for a single dough..They turned out prefect..

Amritsari Aloo Kulcha

2cups Maida/All purpose flour
1tsp Baking powder
1/2tsp Baking soda
1tsp Salt
1tsp Sugar
3tbsp Oil
1/4cup Yogurt

1no Onion (chopped finely)
1no Green chilly (chopped)
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Cumin powder
1/4tsp Chaat masala
1tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)

Mix the flour,baking soda, baking powder, oil, yogurt, sugar and salt in a bowl, add gradually the warm milk and turn everything as a soft but not a sticky dough, cover the bowl with a damp cloth and keep aside for an hour..Take mashed potatoes, finely chopped onions, chopped green chillies, red chilly powder, cumin powder, chaat masala and coriander leaves in a bowl, mix everything and make 4equal medium sized balls..Now flatten a portion of the dough, place a spiced potato masala balls in the centre, fold the dough to form a ball, dust the dough with flour and gently flatten them as round disc..

Heat few drops of oil, gently drop the flattened kulcha and cook on both sides until the kulchas turns golden brown..brush the hot kulchas with butter and enjoy with thick yogurt or Punjabi chole..
