Paneer Aloo Pyaz Whole Wheat Kulcha on Gas Stove

You Can Call it a Stuffed Paratha.

Kulcha is an Indian Flat Bread which is made up of All Purpose Flour and stuffed with ingredients of your choice. The most popular stuffing is Onion, Paneer or Potatoes. How about mixing it all together to make a 3 in 1 Stuffed Kulcha. Lets use Whole Wheat Flour instead of all purpose flour. The Traditiona Kulcha is cooked on the side wall of a Tandoor where the heat is slightly less than in the centre. For an authentic taste, preheat your oven.  However, I will show you how you can make it on your gas stove and giving you almost the same taste. Let’s see how we can make it.

Serves 3 to 4 people

What You Need for stuffing:

1 cup Paneer or cottage cheese. Use the home made Chena for this instead of store bought Paneer. 
2 small potatoes boiled, peeled and mashed
2 small onions finely chopped
1 tsp green chilli chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
Sal to taste
1 tsp dry mango powder
Mix the stuffing together

What You need for dough:

3 cups whole wheat flour
Pinch of salt
½ cup curd
Pinch of baking powder (Skip if you don’t want to use baking powder)
Water to knead the dough . You can replace with milk
Ghee/Clarified butter for cooking

Steps To Make:

Steps To Make:
Make Small Balls of the dough.
Stuff with the paneer potato onion mixture
Roll out into round Kulchas. Wet your hand and tap water on one side with tips of your finger.
Heat a pan. Grease with few drops of oil. 

Put the rolled kulcha on the pan with water tapped side on the bottom.
Repeat the process with the side facing you.
Smear little ghee or butter for cooking.
Once it is 90% done, take a Jali Tray as shown in picture and place it on the low flame of your gas burner.

Cook the remaining 10% by applying direct heat to the Kulcha.

Serve with any gravy of choice. Generally people consume Kulcha with Chole. However I made some Rajma Curry. It tasted equally delicious.
