kulcha Indian bread Recipes

  • 1 heaped tsp dry yeast (I used mauripan)
  • 250 ml warm water/milk (50-50)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp lime/lemon juice (optional)
  • 1/2 cup natural yoghurt or dahi (don’t know what’s dahi, but I’m sure you can easily find yoghurt at the supermarket)
  • 2 tbsp ghee or vegetable oil
  • 600 g plain white flour/maida
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

 Direction Of  kulcha Indian bread Recipes:-
1.Place warm water/milk in a bowl. Sprinkle yeast and sugar over water. Leave for 10 – 15 minutes, until frothy. Add lime juice.

2.In another big bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt.

3.Make a well in the center and pour in yoghurt and oil. Add in the yeast mixture.

4.Mix well and knead to form a dough. Using you hand, knead the dough for 10 – 15 minutes.

5.Then, leave the dough to proof for 2 – 4 hours.

6.Roll out to 6 – 8 inches and 3 – 4 mm thick. ( It’s a little bit tedious to roll cos the dough keeps coming back. You’ll have to sprinkle your board well with flour).

7.Grill on one side till you get brown spots on the roti, then flip to cook on the other side.
8. Serve with Chicken curry or vegetable curry.
