Cheese Kulcha

Kulchas is a younger sister of Naan,  usually made with baking soda/baking powder instead of Yeast, this flatbreads are my favourite. Since this Indian flat bread are versatile, you can make this delicious flatbread stuffed sometimes with interesting fillings or else served simply as plain kulchas .Kulchas is quite a typical Punjabi recipe and Amritsar, a city in Punjab which is famous for its kulchas and Naans.Usually eaten with chole aka channa masala, Kulchas makes a filling breakfast or dinner. If they are stuffed, they doesnt even need any side dish to have with.Though kneading the dough and making a filling asks for some preparation, this kulchas makes an excellent lunch for growing kids.
