Onion Kulcha

For the Indian Cooking Challenge(ICC) Srivalli has chosen 3 types of stuffed kulchas such as onion kulcha,aloo anardhana kulcha,panner kulcha for the last month.Due to to some reasons it was cancelled and we are doing this month.
As I don't have panner and anardhana powder I chose to make Onion kulcha which came out very perfect and we enjoyed with green peas masala.Now to the recipe....................  

For the Kulcha

All purpose flour/maida3cups
Baking soda1/8tsp
Baking powder1/2tsp
Sugar 1tbs

For the Filling
Onion(finely chopped)2nos.(medium size)
Green chilly(finely chopped)3-4nos.
Cumin seeds/jeeragam1/4tsp
Coriander leaves(finely chopped)2tbs(optional)
Saltto taste


                              Mix the ingredients given to make kulcha in a wide bowl and mix well with water as needed to a soft dough and set it aside for 2-3 hours.
Mix the chopped onions,green chillies,grated ginger,cumin seeds and ajwain along with salt.
Divide the dough equally and roll into a small disc and keep 1tbs of filling in the center.Pull the edges  to the center and cover it.
Flatten it and roll gently without giving too much of pressure on a floured surface into circle.
Heat a griddle and cook it both sides in a medium flame till brown spots appear.Drizzle some oil or ghee both sides.
Serve it with chole or curry of your choice.


  • Squeeze the excess moisture in the onion before mixing everything otherwise the stuffing become watery and cannot be rolled properly.

Love your recipe. I have tried other kulcha too in Kulcha King here in UAE. They are also serving other indian foods like biryani and kebab. I also tried their special discount and offer for dine-in.
