the preparation of kulcha naan recipe is very simple and all purpose flour or maida flour is used to prepare the dough. the dough can be mixed with warm water or milk or even yogurt to prepare a tight dough. while kneading the dough leavening agent like baking powder, yeast or even old kulcha dough is added for fermentation. later it rolled thick either with help of hand or with a rolling pin. the shape is usually oval but can also be round or even square. later it is dusted with sesame seeds on one side and baked in tandoor oven. having said that i have used normal tawa using the upside down method. once it is cooked or baked, generous amount of butter or ghee is applied on top it to keep it moist.

kulcha naan recipewhile the preparation of plain kulcha is very simple, yet some tips and suggestions for a perfect kulcha naan recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend to use curd / yogurt to knead the dough. basically it helps to hasten the fermentation with better result. however ignore and use warm water if you are lactose intolerant. secondly, as alternative you can use wheat flour in the place of maida or all purpose flour if you are gluten allergic. but i personally feel maida is any-time a better option. lastly, serve these kulcha’s immediately when it is hot / warm. it turns out to be rubbery and chewy when served cold.

notes:

  • 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.
  • also to prepare stuffed kulcha check out paneer kulcha recipe and aloo kulcha recipe.
  • applying water is mandatory. this helps naan or kulcha to stick to tawa and can reverse the tawa and cook directly on flame.
  • finally, plain kulcha / kulcha naan recipe taste great when served hot.
