Kulcha is a popular Pakistani flat bread from Punjab, especially Lahore. These soft textured breads (kulcha) are easy to prepare. You can make kulchas in the tandoor as well as on a tawa or griddle.
I don’t like the soapy smell of yeast in breads. Hence have used less amount of it and thus added milk too.
Kulcha can be made plain or stuffed. you can also stuff kulcha with potato filling as shown in the aloo paratha recipe. You can also make different variations of kulcha like onion, paneer or pudina kulcha.
Must try this stuffed kulcha recipe, you’ll not disappointed.
