Hey guys!! The recipe I am posting today is a scrumptious and yummy punjabi recipe. It is a type of Indian bread. It is a meal in itself and is full of calories. However indulgence of such kind once in a while is allowed. This recipe seems like it is complicated but is very easy to make and once you try it you will always make it with your curries. You can eat these delicious kulcha with any curry or just plain with amli chutney or just dahi/curd.

3) Take one ball and roll it into a small disc. Now add approx 1 tbsp filling in between the disc and seal it making a ball again.
4) Sprinkle some flour on the rolling table and roll the stuffed ball as prepared above. Roll into small kulchas of around 5″.
