Onion Kulcha

Kulcha is a type of leavened bread originated from Indian Subcontinent. Usually prepared with maida / all purpose flour. Kulcha is popular in India and Pakistan and is served with chole.It is typically a Punjabi recipe. Dough is rolled into flat round shaped and baked in a clay oven until golden brown. When baked, kulcha is rubbed with butter / ghee and then served with hot and spicy Chole / Chickpea curry. In Punjab and Some party of Pakistan Kulcha are very popular as a breakfast dish.

After a long week and busy schedule, we have decided to stay home this weekend. I have been thinking to make Kulcha since very long time. As I got some leisure time and family wanted to eat something different, I have tried this Yummy Onion Kulcha with spicy chole. I have cooked these Kulcha's on stove top instead of baking  in Oven. Here goes the recipe.....
