Delhi Style Kulcha | How to make Kulchas at Home | Plain Wheat Kulchas | Matar Kulcha

These typical Delhi Street Style Matar and Kulcha had always made me crave whenever i came across the picture on any social medias. No way this is a replica of those gorgeous ones but yet a fulfilling feeling when i made these at home. Kept it guilt free by making with wheat / atta and didnt made it drip in ghee / butter. Also baked it to give that bread feel, its easy to make in stove top too. Have tried with baking soda / powder which is a easy task but yeast brought in that perfect texture which i was looking for.

Served these soft wheat Kulches with Matar Chole, Kachumber thinly sliced, Haree Chutney and Fried Green Chillies and Mango Lassi.

What Flour - 2 cups
Semolina / Sooji - 1/4 cup
Instant Dry Yeast - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Curd / Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1 tablespoon
Warm Water as required to mix the dough

Mix all of the above in a deep bowl and make into soft dough.

Cover and allow to raise for 1 and 1/2 hours - 2 hours or until it almost doubles in size.

Divide into equal sized balls roll into medium thick sprinkle and press it on the top with fresh coriander and nigella seeds or as per your wish and allow to raise for 10 minutes.

Mean while heat the Oven to 180 C for 10 minutes. Place the small discs on to the tray or oven plate leave ample space to raise and bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until the crust turns into brown.

Remove and apply ghee / butter or just simply serve it. Bake the remaining kulchas and serve it hot with matar chole.
