Paneer Kulcha is a delicious Indian style bread which tastes amazing with chole (or any curry!). In fact, it is so yummy that you can serve it some garlic and mint chutney or just some pickles and watch it disappear from the plate 🙂
N loves kulchas, absolutely loves any kind of kulchas. The plain kulcha, onion kulcha , paneer kulcha – any form of kulcha. So, sometime back I took it on myself to make the yummiest possible kulcha at home and I am proud to say I did it. I managed to create the yummiest paneer kulcha ever.
And I served it with an equally yummy burnt garlic and mint chutney. I am usually in love with green chutneys in all forms and keep on experimenting with them a lot. So when I saw this recipe, I knew it was something I had to make and I am glad I did, because it was among the best mint chutneys I have had. So here is the recipe of the burnt garlic and mint chutney adapted from Tandoori Cooking @ Home by Sanjeev Kapoor.
What I used
- 6-7 cloves of garlic
- 1 cup of mint leaves roughly chopped , stalk removed
- 1 tsp oil
- 1/2 tsp black salt or acc to taste
- 1/2 cup curd
- handful of coriander leaves
How I made it
- Heat oil in a pan and add crushed garlic to it. fry for about 1 minute.
- Add the black salt to it and fry till it turns totally burn, the idea is to burn it.
- Add this to the rest of the ingredients and grind to chutney consistency.
One of the best things about kulchas I love is the kind of fillings you can put in them. Make it slightly sweet with some dry fruit filling or make it spicy with some potato filling. Make it a bit rich with some creamy and cheesy filling or make it healthy with some vegetable filling! Any filling works for kulchas. And they taste so amazing! Honestly, I think kulchas don’t need any curry to go with them. You can make them and serve with some pickles or chutney. I have even seen people eating kulchas with tomato ketchup. But, of course, nothing beats the combination of chole kulche of the north of India. There are handcarts and roadside vendors who sell such amazing chole kulche. And what amazing taste!
Before, I go on and on, let me just stop and share the recipe of this paneer kulcha with you.
