How to Make Onion Kulcha

  • 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.
