For last month's ICC, Srivalli chose stuffed kulchas. But due to some reasons, the ICC was cancelled last month. So we had to do it for this month's challenge. Kulchas are Punjabi flat bread usually made with all purpose flour/ maida and leavened with baking powder and baking soda. I have posted three kulcha recipes so far.(Punjabi Kulcha, Garlic Kulcha, Paneer Kulcha-Please click the link for recipes) Srivalli gave three recipes for three different stuffing. I chose to prepare onion stuffing. While preparing the stuffing, please take care to remove all the water from the onions before you stuff because, while rolling the kulcha it will be very difficult if there is water in the stuffing. You can either bake the kulchas in a oven or cook it on stove top. I used the stove top method because, I find it easier than the oven method. I prepared a gravy with moong sprouts and had a filling dinner.
All Purpose Flour/ Maida-2cups
For The Filling:
