Who don't like kulchas, whether stuffed or plain , these are one of the favorite breakfast in North Indian houses. But it is a bit different from regular parathas as it's more softer and fluffier than those. That's why kids prefer it over parathas.Though my younger one is very picky eater so to feed him different veggies I have to exercise my mind ,a lot. This time I thought to make these kulchas and serve with their favorite combo and viola it was a hit, as my lil pie finished his lunch box. You can prepare it with any filling of your choice .Generally kulchas are made with yeast but here I made instant version without yeast, that can be prepared in jiffy too. As in the morning we don't have enough time for proofing of yeast dough so this will be a savior for you and equally yummy and fluffy too.
Recipe is given below , hope you all will love to try it.
WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR NO YEAST INSTANT KULCHA
Time: 30 mins
2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour/ chapatti flour/ all purpose flour ( as per your choice )
1 cup thick yogurt ( curd)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
For sprinkling on kulcha:
Nigella ( kalonji) seeds
Sesame ( til) seeds
Chopped coriander leaves
Butter/ ghee for cooking kulcha
First of all mix all dough ingredients together except yogurt. Now using yogurt knead a soft dough. It may be little sticky but don't worry after resting it will become easy to handle. If needed use little water to get nice soft dough. Don't knead too much just 2-3 minute of kneading is enough . Now cover it and keep it to rest for atleast 10 -15 mins.
Take a big lemon size of dough and flatten it . Now roll it in nice thick round / oblong shape using rolling pin and some dry flour. Now sprinkle some nigella, sesame seeds and coriander leaves all over it on one side. Now again roll lightly to stick sprinkles to kulcha.
apply some water on one side of it and place on a preheated tawa with water damped side facing down. It will stick to tawa nicely.
Now cook it on medium flame till you see it's upper side getting nice dry and bubbles on it.
Now flip it and apply some butter or ghee all over it as we do with paratha.
Cook till it get nice golden patches on it. Keep flipping in between to get both sides cooked evenly.
Similarly make all kulchas.
Your soft, fluffy and delicious kulchas are ready to serve with any side dish of your choice.
You can serve it for breakfast, dinner or even in lunch box too.
You can also prepare it stuffed and serve with any side dish of your choice.
*Stuffing can also be done according to your choice and availability.
