Kulcha i wanted to try for a very long time. Naan or kulcha the popular Indian bread, generally we order in restaurants . This is the first time i have attempted Kulcha at home. They turned out super soft and kids had a wonderful treat with home made kulchas. Generally for Naans we add yeast but for kulcha we don’t add yeast. You can stuff potato or paneer or onions to make it stuffed kulcha. I highly recommend you to try this pillow soft kulchas at home. I have tried with maida for this recipe. I have tried with whole wheat flour too, but though it turned out good, i don’t say it is too soft as the maida one. How ever, you can add half of whole wheat flour and half of maida too.

I tried this recipe of kulcha from here.
