Making of kulcha:

  1. After 2 hours of fermentation, knead the dough again for few seconds for smooth texture. Divide the dough into equal balls (for me 5 balls).
  2. Roll the dough into small circle and sprinkle little sesame seeds and coriander leaves on dough. Once again roll the dough into circle or oval shape like paratha. Brush or apply some water on the plain side of the kulcha.
  3. Heat a tawa over medium flame, place the plain side of kulcha on the hot tawa and cook until bubbles start to appear on the surface.
  4. Now turn the entire tawa along with kulcha over direct flame (gas stove or electric stove) and cook until brown spots appear on the surface. Remove from stove and apply butter on top. Repeat the same process with the rest of the dough. Kulcha is ready and serve with any curry of your choice.

Notes:

  • To get restaurant style kulcha, cook kulcha over direct flame. If you find this method is difficult, then you may cook them directly on tawa like we cook chappathi.
  • To prevent kulcha from burning, check them frequently while cooking especially when you cook them directly over flame.
  • I have used cast iron pan for making this kulcha. Iron tawa works better when compared to non-stick tawa.
