After my recent visit to India, I’m love with Kulcha. It’s like a paratha but instead flakey layers, Kulcha has a flakey swirl instead.
Eaten warm, they have an amazing delicious flakey texture and goes perfectly with a good curry/shak or even with an indian cup of chai.
300g chapati flour
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 tbsp oil
200ml warm water
Oil for spreading & frying
Flour to sprinkle
Add the flour & salt into a bowl and create a small well and pour in oil and mix with a dough hook.
Slowly add warm water to the flour and make a dough, continue to knead for about 5 minutes.
Place the dough on a floured surface.
Start to roll out and sprinkle with flour when needed ensuing that the dough doesn’t stick to the surface.
Rolling out evenly and thinly into a rectangle.
Brush the entire rolled out dough with oil.
Sprinkle flour evenly over the oil
Now tightly roll the dough.
Keep rolling until you have a long tight roll.
Cut the dough into pieces.
Grab each piece and lightly cover in flour
Squash the dough down with the palm of your hand
Roll out evenly
Heat an oiled pan over medium heat.
Place on a Kulcha on to the pan.
Brush with oil
After about 20 seconds flip over to cook the other side.
Brush on a little more oil if needed and flip again after 20 seconds.
Ensure both sides are brown and enjoy warm!
