Paneer Kulcha with Burnt Garlic & Mint Chutney BM#4 Day 2

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 :)

For the dough

  • 1 cup Maida all purpose flour
  • 1 cup Atta whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • to taste salt
  • 1/4 tsp ajwain
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tbsps curd
  • 1 tbsp oil

For the filling

  • 250 gms paneer grated, approximately 1 cup (I used home made paneer, I love it the best)
  • 1 onion small chopped
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • to taste salt
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder
  • 6 to 7 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup mint leaves stalk removed, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt black salt according to taste
  • 1/2 cup curd
  • handful coriander leaves


  • Sift the flours together with baking powder and salt. Mix everything apart from oil and knead till soft for about 5 minutes. If you feel the dough is hard ,add some more milk or water.
  • Add the oil and knead again, till about incorporated. Cover with a wet muslin cloth and keep aside for at least one hour.
  • In the meanwhile, mix all ingredients of the filling and keep aside.
  • Divide the dough into balls of the size you make paranthas (I got about 7 kulchas from the dough)
  • Place the balls of the dough on the lightly floored chakla or directly on the counter whatever you prefer, flatten it a little and add ball of filling to the small. Repeat for all the dough.
  • Keep the prepared balls aside for about 5-10 mins.
  • Roll them and bake in a preheated oven at 180C for about 12 mins or till done.
  • If you want the top more browned heat it directly on the flame too for 30 seconds.
  • 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.
