Kulcha Recipe (Without Yeast)


Kulcha is delicious North Indian bread traditionally made in tandoor. Kulcha tastes great with any curry but I usually make matar kulcha or chole kulche which is a popular street and chaat food item.
Recipe of kulcha/ How to make kulcha bread
2 cups maida (all purpose flour)
1/4 tsp soda bicarbonate
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp yogurt (curd/dahi)
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Butter- as needed
1. Sift maida and soda bicarb. Mix yogurt and milk to the flour. Add enough water to make smooth dough. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes, covered with a damp cloth.
2. Add 1 tablespoon oil and knead the dough well. Cover the dough and set aside for 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
3. Divide the dough into 6-8 portions and shape them into balls.
4. Roll out these balls on a lightly floured surface, into 5 inch rounds. Brush lightly with oil.
5. Preheat oven to 220 degree C.
6. Place kulchas on a greased baking tray. Bake them for 6-8 minutes.
7. Brush kulcha with butter and serve hot.
Alternatively you can also cook kulcha in tandoor or griddle (tava).
