Aloo kulcha

Aloo kulcha recipe, a popular Indian flatbread stuffed with potato masala. Recipe of Amritsari Aloo kulcha with full video and step by step instructions.

Kulcha is one of the popular Indian flatbread next to naan, served in Indian restaurants. I have posted a plain kulcha recipe in Jeyashri’s kitchen. Also, I have tried Paneer kulcha once, when I was writing for a magazine. This Aloo kulcha recipe is a no onion no garlic recipe. I didn’t add onion in the potato stuffing. If needed you can add finely chopped onions.

What is the difference between Naan and Kulcha

Naan is made using yeast, whereas Kulcha is made by adding curd, warm milk and baking powder to the flour. Both Naan and kulcha will be very soft in texture. Naan will be more fluffy and soft as we are adding yeast to the dough.

We can stuff paneer, aloo and onion to the kulcha.

How Aloo Kulcha is different from Aloo Paratha

For Aloo kulcha we use plain flour for making the outer cover. Also to the flour, curd, baking soda and warm milk is added. But for Aloo paratha, the dough is made of normal whole wheat flour. It is kneaded with water. You can use the same potato mixture for both Kulcha and Aloo paratha.

This same dough can be used for no yeast pizza recipe too.
