Onion Kulcha~~ IC Challenge

Srivalli choosed stuffed kulchas for this month of Indian Cooking Challenge, actually this challenge is our last month's challenge but for some reason we couldnt able to post it. Kulchas are flattened and a type of leavened bread made from all purpose flour aka maida. These breads are quite often prepared in India and Pakistan. Kulchas are famous bread from Punjab, usually this bread is baked in earthern clay oven until they turns golden brown, once baked its usually rubbed with butter and served with spicy side dishes.

I have already prepared many varieties of kulchas and this time i used onion stuffed kulchas for this challenge. Srivalli shared 3 types of filling,immediately i choosed onion stuffed kulchas as i have already paneer and aloo anardana stuffing. Everyone at home loved this super flavourful kulchas,thanks to Srivalli for this wonderful challenge.I skipped brushing the kulchas with butter and served simply with paneer butter masala.


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

For Filling:
2nos Onions (chopped finely)
3nos Green chillies (chopped thinly)
1/2tsp Ajwain seeds
1/2tsp Grated ginger
1/4tsp Cumin seeds
Salt

Take the all purpose flour,baking powder,baking soda,sugar,salt,oil and yogurt in a large bowl and knead as a smooth dough with enough water and keep aside. Let it sit for 2 hours.

Meanwhile mix well the chopped onions,chopped chillies,ajwain seeds,grated ginger and cumin seeds and salt in a bowl.

Divide the already prepared dough as small pieces and roll them as small circles with a rolling pin.

Place the enough onion filling in the center of the rolled circles, bring all the sides together to close the filling completely. Press it well.

Now roll it down gently as medium sized circles and keep aside.

Heat a pan in a stove in medium flame and place the already prepared kulchas. Drizzle enough oil on all the sides of kulcha and cook well until the brown spots appears.

Serve hot with spicy channa masala or paneer butter masala.
