Kulcha- an Indian Bread

Kulcha is an Indian bread, which is popular all over the country. It is a Punjabi recipe and the ideal combination is the Chole Kulche. Here's the recipe. :) Kulcha


  • 2 - 2 - 1/2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup Water Lukewarm
  • 1/2 cup Milk Lukewarm
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Curd
  • 1 teaspoon Ghee
  • 2 tablespoons Coriander leaves Chopped (Optional)


  • In a bowl, mix the warm water and milk along with sugar. Sprinkle the yeast on top.Keep aside for it to rise (appx 10 minutes).
  • In a bigger bowl mix 2 cups of flour, salt, curd and ghee. Add the yeast mixture. Mix and knead well to form a soft dough.
  • Keep adding more flour if you find the dough too sticky. Once you achieve a soft elastic non sticky dough, place the dough ball in an oiled bowl.
  • Cover with a clingwrap and allow to rise and double in volume. Once the dough has doubled, remove the cling film.
  • Push the dough down. Take small portions and form a ball. Flatten into small discs.
  • Roll them into 4" diameter kulchas. Sprinkle a bit of the chopped coriander leaves on top of each kulcha.
  • Place the kulcha on a hot tawa/griddle. When they start to bubble, rise and you see the edges turning slightly brown, flip it.
  • After cooking for about a minute, remove the kulcha and serve hot.
  • Ideally to be eaten with Chole.
