Plain Kulcha

Ever since I had Kulchas in Amritsar during trip to Harmandir Sahib ( Golden Temple) I wanted to know and make Kulchas myself. This did not happen until this Sunday. So here is the recipe I followed.

  • Ingredients Dough :
    • 2 Cups of Wheat Flour
    • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
    • 1 and 1/2 Cup of Milk
    • 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
    • 2 tbsp Butter
    • 2 tbsp of Sugar
    • Salt to taste
  • Ingredients for Garnish
    • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Coriander.
    • 4 Chopped Green Chilies
    • 4 Chopped Cloves of Garlic
    • 1 tsp of Ajwain
    • 2 1/2 tbsp of Butter


  • Preparation of Dough:
    • Mix Wheat Flour, All Purpose Flour, Butter, Baking Powder,  Salt, Sugar
    • Add Milk in small quantities and Knead the dough
    • Once done, roll the dough flat, spread a layer of butter and fold the dough, do this one more. ( this will form a layer of dough and butter)
    • Once done,  roll the dough straight, and Cut into small Balls to make Kulcha.
  • Garnishing the DoughIMG_20190506_121408
