About Tawa Masala Kulcha Recipe
Kulcha is made by hand mixing maida flour, water, a pinch of salt, and a leavening agent (yeast or old kulcha dough) to form a very tight dough. This dough is covered with a wet cloth and set aside in a warm place for about an hour. The dough is slightly leavened as a result, but not significantly.
The flour is kneaded again by hand before being rolled out into a flat, round shape with a rolling pin. It is baked until done in an earthen clay oven (tandoor). When baked, it is frequently brushed with butter or ghee, though this is not required. It is then served alongside any Indian curry. A spicy chickpea curry known as chole is the dish of choice for eating with kulcha.
Ingredients for Tawa Masala Kulcha Recipe
All Purpose Flour / Maida
Maida requires more oil or butter when baking or cooking because it is lighter and rises faster, which is why bakers prefer maida to atta. All-purpose flour can be used for a variety of tasks, including baking, cooking, coating meats and vegetables, and thickening sauces and gravies. To manufacture all-purpose flour, a blend of hard wheat (which has more gluten) and soft wheat is crushed together.
Baking soda is a leavening agent that is commonly used in baked goods such as cakes, muffins, and cookies. It is a white crystalline powder that is naturally alkaline, or basic. It is also known as sodium bicarbonate. When baking soda is combined with both an acidic and a liquid, it becomes activated.
The flour flakes in the dough will be covered by the butter. The butter will melt once the cookie is in the oven, but the flour will keep its strength, holding the cookie together.
