Amritsari Kulcha

Hi Friends .....
  Yesterday was my B'day and I thought of taking full day rest but one of my cousin asked me -"What esp. you are making today?" .....Those words I took them seriously and made Amritsari Kulcha at home :-)
I tried this for the first time and was liked by everyone at home. So sharing the recipe with you all so that you  too can impress your family members :-)

3 cups Maida (all purpose flour)
3 tbsp Curd 
1/4 tsp baking soda 
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Sugar 
Salt  acc. to  taste
Oil for kneading 
For garnishing:
Few chopped coriander leaves
Onion seeds or melon seeds 

For Potato Mixture:
4-5 potatoes (boiled and mashed)
1-2 green chilies (finely chopped)
1 medium size onion (finely chopped)
1 tsp amchoor powder (dry mango powder)
1 tbsp coriander powder 
1/2 tbsp garam masala
Salt taste
Few coriander leaves 
(finely chopped) 

  • Sieve the maida in a bowl add  curd, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar.
  • Mix the ingredients, knead the flour with water to make a smooth dough.
  • Apply oil to the dough. Cover it with wet towel and keep it at a warm place. Within 4-5 hours the dough will become double the size.
  • Knead it again with greased hands. Keep the dough aside and prepare your potato filling.
For Filling :
Mix all the ingredients nicely in mashed potatoes and keep it aside.

How to make Kulcha:
  • Divide the dough into 5-6 portion and balls of the dough.
  • Take one ball of the dough and roll it into a flat disc of 3 inch.
  • Put the potato mixture on the dough. Close it from all the sides to make a round ball again.
  • Apply dry atta on the ball and press it with light hands to make kulchas.
  • You can use rolling pin too (but with light hands).

  • Garnish with some onion seeds (kalonji) and finely chopped coriander on the top of the kulcha.
  • Place it in tandoor. ( I used electric tandoor)

  • You can make it on griddle or tava too. (Put the kulcha on the tava or griddle and roast it till it turns brown from all the sides).
  • Remove from fire or tandoor.
  • Apply little butter on the top and serve hot with white chole or mix veggie raita.
