Multigrain Masala Kulcha

Kulchas are a type of flat bread eaten mostly in India and Pakistan. Kulcha  is mostly eaten with Chole or Chickpea Curry. Stuffed Masala Kulchas can be eaten with Pickles or Thick Yogurt. Well, I like to have them with spicy Mango pickle from the south(Avakkai) and Yogurt.

Untill last year ,I had never imagined  making  Kulchas and Naans at home. We ate them only at Restaurants. But now I have experimented at home . I make delicious Kulchas and Naans with so much ease. To make it healthier I tried Multigrain Masala Kulcha .This was an Instant hit with my family.
