Paneer Kulcha

Paneer Kulcha

Paneer Kulcha Is stuffed with paneer and its very easy to prepare at home. We stuff the Kulcha with paneer filling and filling itself is very simple and easy to prepare. Traditionally Kulcha made in the tandoor. I made it in the oven. You can also make this on stove top. It is fluffy, soft from inside and crispy from outside. These I assure you will be a hit in any dinner party. You can serve this Paneer Kulcha with Chhole Or can be served with curd. The dough is for 12 kulchas. And the stuffing is for 8 Kulcha.  I made pizza next day out the remaining dough.
