Recipes: Masala Kulcha

Sometimes we get bored of eating regular phulaka/roti/paratha and look for something which is quick and tasty. Masala kulchas is a good alternative recipe for such occasions. You may have it with curd for lunch or dinner. These kulchas also taste great with any vegetable.

·         2  Cups wheat flour
·         7-8 finely chopped garlic
·         15-20 black papers crushed
·         1 cup fresh coriander finely chopped
·         1 cup mint leaves finely chopped
·         Salt as per taste
·         Oil as needed
·         Water as needed

      Servings: 4
1.       Knead wheat dough by adding enough water, oil and salt. Dough should be like our regular chapatti/phulka dough. Cover the dough and keep it aside for 15 minutes.
3.       Mix chopped coriander, garlic, mint, salt black pepper and teaspoon of oil.
4.       Take big lemon sized dough ball and roll it in a round shape and sprinkle mixture prepared in step 3 evenly on round shaped roti.
5.       Sprinkle teaspoon of oil on roti and with the help of your palm gently press mixture so that it blends with the dough.

6.       Fold roti in a way shown in above pictures.

7.       Then make a roll like a bundle of a ribbon or rolled mat. Ready roti roll is shown in above picture.
8.       Now roll roti with the help of rolling pin. Sprinkle wheat flour while rolling so that it doesn't stick to rolling pin.
9.       Thickness of the Roti shall be similar paratha. It shall not be too thin or thick.
10.   Roast Roti from both sides on tawa or in a shallow pan. Add ghee, butter or oil as per your preference.

11.   You can also roast these kulchas on a groll as shown in picture below. It gives little smoky flavor to kulcha.
12.   Serve with curd, chatany, vegetable or curry.

 Preparation tips:
   You can add little chat masala or finely chopped green chilies to mixture if you like.
