Today let’s make Kulcha, a soft yet hard white flatbread that tastes scrumptious coupled with curries and lentils. A winter must-have, we crave this bread as is or sometimes accompanied with meat curries.

  • Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
  • Resting/Preheating time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10 Minutes
  • Serves: 2-3

INGREDIENTS:

  • Refined flour: 450 g
  • Sugar: 45 g
  • Oil: 70 ml
  • Salt: As required
  • Water: 200 ml
  • Green Chilli, chopped: 1

METHOD:

Dump the flour on a clean flat surface and create a well in the middle.

Add sugar and oil to the centre of the well; sprinkle salt on the sides of the flour.

Mix oil and sugar within the confines of the flour walls until it forms a slurry texture.

Now, slowly and steadily start incorporating a little bit of flour at a time with the oil-water puddle. Add water a dribble at a time to ensure that everything mixes well in the dough.

Stretch and pull the dough to make sure that the elasticity of the dough is uniform throughout.

Shape the dough into a ball and coat it with a few drops of oil to make sure it remains moist and fresh. Rest this ball in a bowl covered with a damp cloth for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven for 20 minutes at 180-degree celsius.

Fifteen minutes later, cut the dough into small palm-sized balls.

Dust the floor with some flour and roll out a palm-sized ball into a thick flat disc and press one or two pieces of chopped chillies on it right in the centre.

Spray/ brush oil on a baking tray to ensure that the kulcha doesn’t stick to it while baking.

Place the tray in the oven and bake for 10 minutes at 180-degree celsius until the bread is cooked and golden amber bubbles have popped on the bread surface.

Serve hot with a spicy curry or hot dal to make a bleak winter evening feel cozy.

She is an enterprising, young lady who works as an office assistant-administrator and a part-time invigilator at the British council.

  • Preparation Time: 20 Minutes 
  • Baking Time: 10 – 12 Minutes 
  • Serves: 10 – 12 

INGREDIENTS:

  • Butter: 1 Cup
  • Brown sugar: 1 Cup
  • Vanilla extract: 3 tsp
  • Egg, large: 1
  • Plain flour: 3 Cups
  • Cocoa powder: 3 Cups
  • Baking powder: 2 tsp

METHOD:

  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter, brown sugar and chocolate together over low heat till all the chocolate chunks have dissolved.
  • In a separate bowl, roughly combine the flour, baking powder and vanilla essence along with an egg. Top this off with the previously made chocolate mixture.
  • Add the cocoa powder to the bowl and mix well to form a grainy dough. To this add the milk; mix well again.
  • Now for the fun part, in a separate bowl mix together chocolates and candies of your choice and add the chocolate cookie dough to it along with the marshmallows as well as the chocolate chips. Mix it up to form a lumpy dough.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and keep aside.
  • Take one to two tbsp of dough in your hand and roll it into small balls. Place it on a baking tray pressing gently on the top to slightly flatten the ball. Remember to leave ample space in between each ball to have room for all to expand while baking.
