Aloo Anardana Kulcha

The April edition of Indian Cooking Challenge was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. These kulchas were actually part of the April challenge and Srivalli asked us to post it for the month of May instead.

Whenever we get bored of the regular phulkas for dinner, I resort to making kulchas with different fillings depending on the pantry 

Ingredients - 
For the Outer layer - 
All Purpose Flour 1 cup
*Wheat Flour 1 cup (The original recipe uses all purpose flour)
Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda a pinch
Salt as needed
Oil 1-2 tsp
Curds/Yogurt 1 cup
Water or milk as needed to knead a soft dough

For the Filling -
Potato peeled, boiled and grated 1 cup (1 medium potato)
Powdered Pomegranate seeds 2 tsp
Onion, sauteed 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves/Cilantro , chopped 1/4 cup
Mint leaves / Pudina, chopped 2 Tbsp
Green chilli as needed (I didn't use)
Red chilli powder 1/4 tsp

Aloo Anardana Kulcha

Method Of Preparation -
To Prepare the Dough - 
In a mixing bowl, sift the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add in curds and oil and knead a soft dough adding as much water/milk as needed.

Cover the dough and set aside for 30 min (I set aside only for 10 min and started making kulchas.)

Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and set aside.

To Prepare the Filling - 
In a mixing bowl, add the boiled and grated potato, sauteed onions, powdered pom seeds (anardana powder) salt, mint, coriander leaves, red chilli powder and mix well.

Divide the mixture into equal portions. I made about 10 portions and set aside.

To Prepare the Kulchas - 
Flatten each portion of the dough into a small circle and place one portion of the stuffing, fold the edges to cover the stuffing and roll into a ball.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the stuffed dough into a 4-5 inch disc of desired thickness. 

Cook the rolled out kulchas on a hot tawa/griddle until they are cooked on both sides. Spray oil as needed. 

Continue with the rest of the dough and store the prepared kulchas in an insulated case.

Serve with seasoned yogurt or a curry of your choice.

Preparation Time 30 min + resting time 15 min
