Kulcha is a spongy Indian flatbreads served with curries. Kulcha is prepared from Maida or white refined flour. Kulcha is leavened with baking powder & whole milk yoghurt. A filling of mashed potatoes or Paneer or Peas is used while preparing Kulcha along with other spices that are mixed with the dough. The cooking method of Kulcha is similar to that of Naan. Kulcha is a variant of Naan which includes the fillings of Paneer, Potatoes, Vegetables, Onions and other vegetables. The process of preparing a Kulcha involves mixing of mashed potatoes and peas with the dough. A medium sized ball is made after rising and Kulcha is rolled out. Put the Kulcha in the tandoor or on the Tava and baked until it turns brown in color. Kulcha is served mainly with Chole. Butter is spread over Kulcha to make it tastier.

A popular Indian recipe, Kulcha is soft textured, fluffy bread which are easy to prepare. Unlike Naan, Yeast is not used to ferment the Kulcha dough. A mixture of curd, baking soda and baking powder is added to ferment the Kulcha bread. To avoid the soapy smell of baking soda, add it in small amount.

Prepare Kulcha with Whole Wheat flour. This will make it more nutritious in comparison to plain flour or maida.  The combination of Kulchas and Potatoes, Kulcha and Peas or Kulchas and Paneer is a common preparation. You can skip the  filling & make whole wheat flour Kulcha which can be healthier. Calories in Kulcha are as given below in the table based on the macros in it.
