Kulcha is a traditional preparation made with plain flour and curds. The curds add a yummy tanginess to the kulcha. Here the kulcha has been stuffed with a rich and spicy paneer filling.


It is advisable to keep the dough aside covered with a wet muslin cloth for at least 2 hours to allow it to rise. This will make your kulchas fluffier.


These kulchas are excellent and satiating as a one dish meal . Raitas and Chutneys make an excellent match for these kulchas. When had with a bowl of Dal Amritsari or Panchmel Dal it gives you the satisfaction of having had a wholesome and tasty meal.
