  1. In a bowl mix flour with salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.
  2. Add yoghurt and clarified butter to the flour. With the help of water knead into soft dough.
  3. Place the dough in a clean bowl and allow it to rest for a couple of hours. Cover the bowl with a damp towel.
  4. To prepare the filling, mix all the ingredients mentioned under filling in a separate bowl. Just ensure that your filling is dry and not soggy.
  5. After your dough has rested for a couple of hours, make small balls of the dough.
  6. Roll out each ball into a small circle and place a portion of the filling in the middle.
  7. Fold the dough from the sides with filling inside into a ball again. Allow them to rest for five minutes.
  8. With the help of a rolling pin, flatten the stuffed ball into a circle.
  9. Cook the kulcha with oil on a frying pan till brown on both sides. Alternatively, bake the kulcha in a preheated oven for five to seven minutes.
  10. Serve hot with chutney/pickle.
You can knead the dough with warm milk instead of water- brings a great texture to the bread!
