Onion kulcha

      When we were kids, I remember buying readymade kulcha (something like pizza base) from a nearby supermarket quite frequently. It just had to be cooked on a hot tava and was then served with some exotic and tasty side dish of our choice preferably paneer which was our hot favourite at that time and continues to be even now,but channa is a great authentic combo.
      I made this few weeks ago and it was so delicious and made a very filling lunch too.

onion kulcha
Maida/Apf- 1-1/2 cup
Atta/whole wheat flour- 1-1/2 cup
Baking powder-1/2tsp
Baking soda- A pinch
Sugar- 1tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil-1/4 cup
Ghee- 1tbsp +As required to rub on the kulchas while cooking

Method- Mix all the ingredients(add the wet ingredients in the dry ingredients) except the oil. Knead to a dough. Finally add the oil to make a smooth elastic dough.

Onion-1 finely chopped
Coriander- finely chopped
Grated cheddar cheese- 1/4 cup
   Mix all the ingredients in a a bowl. Also add finely slit green chillies,salt and red chilly powder if you wish.

How to proceed-
    Pinch a small portion of the dough. Roll it into a circle. Make a small ball of the filling and place it on the center of the circle. Seal the ends and form a ball again. Now roll it with a rolling pin to a thick circle. Heat a girdle or tava. Place this circle on it. Cook on both sides till you see small brown spots appear on them. Apply some ghee on them .
        Serve them hot with a side dish. Chole is best side dish for this. But I served them with some paneer butter masala.
