  • 3 cups - Maida (all-purpose flour)
  • 1/2 tsp - baking powder
  • 1/8th tsp - baking soda
  • 1 tbsp - Sugar
  • Salt to taste (approx. 1 tsp)
  • 1/4 cup - oil
  • 1/2 cup - yogurt
  • 1 tbsp - Ghee
  • For the filling:
  • 1 - large onion, chopped very finely
  • 2-3 - chillies, sliced thinly (or as per taste)
  • 1/4 tsp - ajwain (oregano)
  • 1/2 tsp - ginger, grated
  • 1/4 tsp - cumin
  • Salt to taste

How to Make

  • Mix all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl until blended and set aside.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the dough, add water if needed to make it into a soft dough. Set aside for at least 1-2 hours.
  • Then divide the dough into small pieces and make rounds of each. Roll it out into a small circle with the help of a rolling pin, just like you would do with rotis or parathas.
  • Now place a little filling in the centre of the rolled out dough and bring all the sides up to enclose the filling.
  • Press it down.
  • Now roll it down softly into a circle.
  • Set the setting of your oven to broiler. Once hot, place this rolled out kulcha into a baking pan and push it into the broiler for 2-3 mins until the top is browned.
  • Now turn the kulcha and broil for additional 2 mins.
  • Serve hot with butter melting on top and chole at the side.
