Paneer Kulcha ~ For Indian Cooking Challenge !

Ever since we had those chicken stuffed kulchas from Gujarat last year,my daughter was insisting me for such soft home-made kulchas.Beginning from the aircraft we enjoyed varieties of Kulchas during the journey.At Ahmedabad and Kutch (Rann Fesitval) we were lucky to taste splendid kulchas.

Thankfully this month’s Indian Cooking Challenge chose these scrumptious kulchas as a theme.From the given three options,I opted for Paneer Kulcha,which came out perfect for me.Thanking Srivalli & ICC for this recipe.

Ingredients (makes 6 kulchas of medium size)

2 cups maida/all purpose flour
1 tbsp yogurt
1/4 tsp soda bicarbonate
1 tsp sugar
1/2 to 3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt

For stuffing

200 gm paneer/cottage cheese,grated
1 tsp red chilly powder (kashmiri is better)
1/2 tsp chaat masala
salt to taste

Method

In a large bowl combine flour with yogurt, soda bicarbonate,salt and sugar.Knead into a soft dough adding milk.You may add little by little so that the dough may come perfect.Cover this dough with a damp cloth and keep it for one hour.Now the dough will be spongy in texture and almost double in size.Make lemon sized balls of dough.Six medium sized balls you can expect from this.Let it rest for five to ten minutes.Meanwhile prepare the paneer stuffing by mixing the mentioned all ingredients in a bowl.Now roll each dough balls into a small puri and place a portion fo stuffing in the middle.Close it from four sides and again roll it out to almost a six inch round kulcha.Preheat the oven in maximum temperature.Spray the baking tray with any oil and place the kulchas over it.Bake them seven to ten minutes or till it puffs and brown spots appears on top.In between flip it over so that both sides will be cooked evenly.Serve hot with butter,pickle and curd.
