amritsari kulcha recipekulcha recipe on tawa | amritsari kulcha recipe | aloo kulcha recipe with step by step photo and video. a popular naan bread recipe from indian and pakistan cuisine which is typically consumed with chole masala or channa masala. amritsari kulcha is a potato stuffed kulcha recipe which is popular bread recipe from amritsar, a city in punjab.

i always prepare kulcha recipe for my lunch or dinner with any paneer based curries or with soya chunks curry. however, i was surprised to learn that in punjab these naan bread recipes are eaten for breakfast. especially aloo kulcha recipe with plain raita or mint raita is the most popular in sub continent. i also like it with simple mango pickle or even with dal makhani.

furthermore, some important tips and suggestions for a perfect amritsari kulcha recipe. firstly, i have kneaded the dough with plain luke warm water, however even warm milk can be used to knead the dough. this would result in a soft and layered kulcha recipe. secondly, always apply water to backside of kulcha before heating it on tawa or oven. lastly, the potato stuffing can be completely ignored and you can prepare plain kulcha recipe.

finally, i would like to highlight my other indian roti recipes collection and paratha recipes collection. this mainly includes, garlic naan, rumali roti, tandoori roti, methi thepla, kerala parotta, gobi paratha and aloo paratha recipe. in addition i would request to check my other recipes collection board like,

notes:

  • firstly, knead to smooth a soft dough else kulcha will be chewy.
  • also to prepare plain kulcha just skip the stuffing part.
  • applying water is mandatory. this helps naan or kulcha to stick to tawa and can reverse the tawa and cook directly on flame.
  • in addition, you can also use oven or tandoor to bake the kulcha instead of tawa. but never use nonstick tawa as it slips while reversing.
  • furthermore, roll to any desired shape. however, i like to keep it oval as it looks similar to the one served in restaurants.
  • finally, amritsari kucha or aloo kulcha taste great when served hot.
