Butter Kulcha

Whole Wheat Flour Butter Kulcha

Butter Kulcha is one of my favourite Indian bread recipes. I always order butter kulcha with a mix veg curry or paneer butter masala if I decide to have food outside that particular day  🙂

I know it’s been so long for a new post here. Been busy past two months. Was figuring out what to do and what not to do for the blog and also trying out some recipes.

Now I am back with this recipe and will post regularly.

Kulchas are usually made of maida/All purpose flour and are cooked in Tandoor. But today I am sharing with wheat flour and without any yeast cooked on a Tawa.

They taste good and comes exactly as in tandoor when cooked on a Cast iron Tawa instead of non-stick Tawa. I prepared carrot butter masala for this as a side dish.

Ok, now let’s get into the detailed step by step recipe.
