|Methi Garlic Kulcha Recipe|
Methi Garlic Kulcha Recipe, Kulcha is a type of flat bread cooked mainly on tandoor. Since we don’t have tandoor at home, you can try to cook with oven or stove top. Kulcha and Naan are somewhat similar except for the difference Naan is cooked using yeast and for Kulcha we use baking powder and baking soda.
I had already shared the recipe for Aloo Paneer Kulcha. In this recipe, I have used whole wheat flour, so those who want to skip it, replace with maida / refined flour. You can also replace fresh methi leaves with dry fenugreek leaves. But if using dried ones, then rest the dough for 15-30 mins. I have added only 3 tbsp of methi leaves, you can increase the quantity to 1/2 cup for more flavor. We enjoyed this flat bread with Boondi Raita, Pepper Egg Fry & Pattani Salna.

How to prepare Methi Garlic Kulcha at home
- Sieve wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Combine in a mixing bowl. Add minced garlic, chopped methi leaves and sugar. Mix them very well. Now add curd and knead well. Add olive oil and enough warm water. Knead to a smooth dough. Cover it and keep aside for 1 hour. Divide the dough into equal sized balls.
- Take a ball and dust with flour. Flatten the ball and roll it thin using roller pin. Heat a tava or frying pan. The tava should be very hot so keep it on high flame for few mins. Take the rolled out kulcha and place it over hot tava.
- Cook it on medium flame now onwards. Once small bubble starts appearing, turn the other side of kulcha and brush little oil/ghee. Once brown spots form on both the sides, remove from the heat and brush with little oil/ghee. Proceed with other kulcha. Serve hot with any curry of your choice.
