How to make Kulchas at home ( yeast free ) / Simple Kulcha recipe / Indian FlatBread:

27 Apr 2012












Simple Kulcha recipe:





Today I’m going to share how to make super simple Indian flatbread / Kulcha at home..!!

It’s a lot like Naan, but the Naan is prepared with yeast, these delicacies are made with Baking powder / Sodium bicarbonate combo. This recipe is great for  vegetarians, as it is yeast & egg free.


This happens to be one of my favorite breads I order, when we eat at restaurants. Making this immensely fluffy, soft bread at home is fuss free & makes use of simple ingredients, that are lying in our pantry ! 


It tastes great with any spicy & light side dish and will be a hit menu in any dinner party.














So, lets go ahead and get started preparing this classic Indianbread..:)











Ingredients:



  • All Purpose Flour / Maida flour   - 2 cups
  • Salt                                          - ½ tsp
  • Sugar                                       - 1 tsp
  • Baking soda / sodiumbicarbonate – ¼ tsp
  • Yoghurd                                   - 4 to 5 tbsp
  • Oil                                            - 1 to 2 tbsp








Method:














  1. Take maida flour in a wide bowl.
  2. Add salt, sugar, baking soda and combine.








  1. Add yoghurd and knead well.






  1. Add little oil and make soft & smooth dough.







  1. Cover it with a damp cloth and let the dough rest to 30 mins, so that lactic acid in yoghurd can react with baking soda & we can make nice kulchas out of it.
  2. Now, make small lemon sized balls out of the dough.











  1. Flatten it to round shape, by dusting with maida flour. ( just like roti or chapatti )
















  1. Put them in a skillet that is very hot.










  1. Cook it on medium high.
  2. Cook till both sides are nicely golden brown.
















  1. When its done, dash some butter to it.









  1. Serve it hot with the  curry  of your choice.












  1. So nice pack of kulchas are ready ..enjoy..:)

Dear Jay, that's indeed a good pictorial but being from north India, I can confirm one thing that kulcha are not rolled out thin. It can be made with or without yeast, infact the traditional kulchas available on every 'thela' in north r yeasted.
I guess more readers can throw light on this.

I just love unleavened bread, and make it all the time. I use a chapati recipe but use white flour instead, and no baking powder. Great on an open fire too!

I have seen so many flat breads on your blog, You do make it to the perfection point. On one point I agree with Pari, Kulchas are not rolled thin, they are puffy, and are mostly stuffed.
Great work done! Have a nice weekend!

These look good. And strangely when you make this at home they stay soft even when cold. I wonder why restaurant ordered kulchas are chewy!

Looks so super yummy Jey !!

It's a different type of Kulcha...good

Saru Singhal said...

Yummy and simple. Will try it sometime.

Honey said...

omg, this looks delicious. i've heard of Kulcha, but I certainly DID not know you make them with white flour. Can you use Whole Wheat Flour? what about whole wheat pastry flour? This looks so delicious.. yummy! I have to try this.

Jay said...

yes honey, you can replace APF with wheat flour, but the original taste of kulcha can be enjoyed only with APF..!
giv a try & lemme know..:)
