Kulcha Recipe – a type of leavened bread is probably one of the most popular Flatbread in India and Pakistan after Naan. Kulcha is a typical Punjabi recipe. Amritsar, a city in Punjab, is famous for its Amritsari kulchas or Amritsari naan. Today I am sharing an easy recipe of Aloo Kulcha / Stuffed Kulcha. Made from refined flour (Maida) stuffed with Potato mixed with spices to enhance the taste. Naan uses Yeast as a leavening agent whereas Kulcha is made using Baking Powder and Baking Soda. Kulcha typically cooked in the tandoor, but I have cooked it on Tawa. Learn how to make delicious Stuffed Kulcha / Aloo Kulcha at home without Tandoor.
