Amritsari Aloo Kulcha is a delicious Punjabi recipe which is very much popular in Delhi NCR too and is served with Chole masala by the street vendors. These Kulchas are stuffed with a mildly spicy and tangy potato mixture and are packed with flavors.
You can make these Kulchas without a Tandoor. How cool is that? 😀 Use your regular tawa to make these delicious Kulchas at home. The making of Kulcha dough requires all-purpose flour but I have replaced the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour to make it healthier. So, the next time when you crave for Kulcha and want to avoid the extra calories too, then try this Kulcha and I am sure you won’t get disappointed by the taste. These Kulchas are so easy to prepare at home with various other stuffings of your choice.
Serve the Kulchas with homemade Aam ka achaar and a bowl of curd or a hot cup of Ginger tea. 🙂
