Stuffed Kulcha Recipe | How to Make Stuffed Kulcha

Flatbreads are the main part of any Indian cuisine. Being an Indian, each one of us knows very well the value and variety that comes attached with any Indian flatbread.

Though the Indian flatbreads come in a lot of variety but ‘kulcha’ is actually the king of them all! There was a time when kulchaa and naan were confined only to the households of the rich and royal people. But that is not the case today.

Kulcha is actually a famous Indian bread which hails from the North Indian cuisine. It is prepared easily but of course, with perfection using ‘maida’ (all purpose flour), salt, rising agent and water. Kulchas can be made in different forms. Butter kulcha, matar kulcha, aaloo kuclha and Amritsari kulchas are just few of the famous kulcha varieties.

Kulchas are mainly served during special occasions, parties or get togethers. You can find them readily available in restaurants, hotels and dhaabas across India. I prepare my own kulchas while throwing a party at home. Soft and laid with butter or ghee, they surely make a great combo with any vegetable curry too!
