Oh! Are you wondering what 6.2 is? he he! I am just doing the second round of the baking marathon too, that’s it! So there will be recipes on the blog for the coming week too. The theme of the week which I have chosen is mini bites and hence the recipe for these delicious mini paneer kulchas!
I think naans and kulchas are India’s favorite flat breads! There is something about them which is so appealing that whether you have it with some curry or just as is, they are delicious! And the variations in them! Oh, the variations are so amazing, that I think even if you had one type everyday, you won’t be able to eat all of them in a year 🙂
Kulchas were popularized by the Nizams of Hyderabad and their popularity spread all across India. The advantage of Kulchas over naans during the earlier times was that they could easily be made in tawas which were more easily accessible to the common person, as compared to the tandoors which were more expensive and used only by the royals! And there are so many different types of Kulchas, is it? The delicious Kashmiri and Peshwari Kulchas stuffed with dry fruits and fruits along with meat. There are kulchas stuffed with different vegetables and then there is of course, kulchas stuffed with paneer, like this one 🙂
I think the most famous of kulchas is the Amritsari Kulcha which is basically kulchas stuffed with a filling of potatoes and spices, though now there are several variations to this available! And what tastes best with kulchas? Well, chole, of course! There are very few people in this world who can resist a chole kulcha combination 🙂 I am included in those 🙂
So make these mini paneer kulchas today for a special treat!
