You are probably familiar with Indian Naan bread, well this is similar and worth a try. And if you make extra dough then portion it as it freezes well and comes in very handy when you have the munchies after a night on the town. Use your imagination to make stuffed Kulcha.
230 ml plain white flour
¼ tsp baking powder
Tip of tsp baking soda
¼ tsp sugar
30 ml oil
60 ml plain yoghurt
One tsp ghee
In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients sieving all the items to make sure of an even mixing.
Add oil, ghee and yoghurt to the flour and mix it well, add some milk if necessary in order to make a soft dough.
The dough should be soft.
Knead the dough to make smooth and pliable.
Cover the dough and let it sit for about 2 hours.
Knead the dough for few seconds and divide into equal parts, flour the surface and roll them out into roundish shapes.
Heat an iron skillet or heavy frying pan on medium heat.
Wipe the skillet with few drops of oil.
Place the kulcha in the hot skillet and sprinkle with a few drops of water.
Sprinkle some nigella seeds over the kulcha while it is still wet, and press them in with your hands.
The bread should start to develop golden brown spots at which point flip it over.
When the Kulcha is ready, butter it before serving.
