Aloo Panner Kulcha

Aloo Paneer Kulcha
I made this dish for dinner yesterday and I gotta tell you this, It was so soft and just melts in your mouth..Since I added potatoes in the dough it was so soft,but this is entirely optional..i used paneer in the filling,but you could use tofu also..This is a thick kind of paratha so you don’t have to use a rolling pin for rolling this,just press the dough with your hands...This is perfect for lunch box for kids,since they love paneer and potatoes..Please try this and let me know what you think..


For dough:
Wheat flour / Atta-1 cup
All purpose flour / Maida-1 cup
Potao-1 boiled and mashed

  19. Amazing recipes and fantastic blog.
    Thank you so much for visiting me. Loved your corner and I'll be back soon.

  20. Hi,
    If im making this kulcha without paneer will it be good and can i follow the same method shown here?
    Both for the dough making and for the filling we need potatoes?

  21. @Aswathy You can make it with aloo alone..And you can skip adding potatoes to dough too..But adding potatoes to dough make it more softer

  22. How to close the kycha after placing the filling. How to get the centre of the kulcha in even thickness and filling as the sides.

  23. @zee sonyJust grab the sides and pinch them together. then flatten them and roll

  24. Hi Aarthi Di...
    I just wanna know that how many kulchas will get from this quantity?? I mean u dint mention SERVES here.... Plz specify.
    Thank you :)

  25. Maida and wheat flour each one one cup. But when it comes to pictorial representation I can see some size variations.. can your mention grams
