1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
For Filling
1 boiled potato
1/2 onion
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/4 teaspoon coriander leaves
1/2 green chilli
1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder

How to make Amritsari Kulcha
Step 1
To prepare the dough, take a large bowl and sieve the flour in it. Add baking powder, baking soda, curd and refined oil in it. Add sugar and salt in the flour and mix it well with your fingers. Add warm milk in flour and knead the mixture to prepare a firm dough. Cover it with a wet cloth and keep it aside.

Step 2
To make the stuffing for the kulcha, take boiled potato and mash it in a bowl. Combine finely chopped onions and green chilies with mashed potato. Add chat masala, coriander leaves, red chili powder and cumin powder in the mixture. Sprinkle salt and mix the ingredients with a spoon.

Step 3
Now take the dough and divide it into two equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball and then flatten the ball using a rolling pin. Place a spoonful of aloo filling in the center of the flatten dough and close the kulcha well. Sprinkle some flour over it and roll it again into a paratha.

Step 4
Take a non-stick pan, add olive oil in it and heat it over medium flame. When oil bubbles start to rise, gently place the kulcha in pan and cook for a minute. Flip the kulcha and cook the other side till both sides turn crispy and golden brown in colour. Once done, serve hot with Amritsari Chole.
