Kulcha Recipe | How to Make Baked Kulcha

A very soft and delicious kulcha which are baked o perfection and are best served with chole or spicy chana recipe.

The kulcha recipe is adapted from Anushrati’s Divine Kitchen and I have had made it at least a four tiles since then but really never got a chance to click pictures for the blog. So when I made it again for yesterday night dinner I kept some dough and chana to click the pictures in the morning.

It’s really hard to resist these home-baked, super soft and delicious kulcha along with spicy matar or chana to go with.

Next time I am going to try the recipe with whole wheat flour only and will see how it would turn to make it a totally guilt-free meal. But for occasional typical chana kulcha experience, this is the best tried and tested recipe that I would recommend you all to try.
