Garlic Kulcha

Starting the second week of Blogging Marathon #49 with the Indian Bread Basket Theme and today's one is garlic kulcha.
Kulcha is leavened bread made with either whole wheat flour or all purpose flour,baking soda and baking powder with no yeast baked in an earthenware.
Kulcha can be made plain as well as stuffed and also can be cooked on the griddle and today's version is later one.Already I have shared aloo kulcha and onion kulcha.Off to the recipe..............................
