Amritsari kulcha | Aloo kulcha, a typical punjabi cuisine indian flat bread recipe prepared with all purpose flour / Maida with potato stuffing. Amritsari Naan or Kulcha is typically baked in indian tandoor oven but here I will show you the easiest method of using tawa on stove top.

Amritsari Kulcha a popular naan bread recipe from indian cuisine which is typically served with Chhole or Chana masala. One can also serve this delicious Kulcha with Curd, Raita , Pickle , any Paneer curry or Daal Makhni….

I served with Chhole , Carrot Chilli Pickle and Onion Salad..

Notes::

  • I have kneaded the dough with luke warm water, however even warm milk can be used. This would result in a soft and layered Kulcha.
  • Always apply water to backside of Kulcha before heating it on tawa or oven.
  • One can also add grated Paneer (Cottage Cheese ) to potato stuffing. Or even the potato stuffing can be completely ignored and you can prepare plain Kulcha ..
