Paneer Kulcha


Kulcha is a traditional dish of Punjab. There are different types of kulcha in which I tried is Paneer Kulcha. Easy to make & as everyone among us love Paneer….this dish becomes our favorite.


  • Maida/ All-purpose flour – 2cups
  • Yogurt/ Curd – 2tbsp
  • Soda bicarbonate – ¼ tsp
  • Sugar – 1tsp
  • Milk – ½ cup
  • Paneer – 250gms (grated)
  • Chili powder – 1/2tsp
  • Chat masala – a pinch
  • Salt as per taste


  • Take maida in a bowl. Add yogurt, soda bicarbonate, sugar & salt. Mix thoroughly. Then add milk to make smooth dough. Cover it with a damp cloth & keep a side for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the Oven at maximum temperature.
  • Take a bowl & add grated paneer, chili powder, chat masala & salt. Mix well.
  • Make lemon sized balls from the dough. Roll each ball into a round poori shape. Stuff a portion of paneer into each poori. Close it from all ends & again make balls & let them rest for 5mins.
  • Then slowly roll the stuffed balls into 7inch round kulcha.
  • Grease the microwave baking tray with little water & sprinkle little chili powder on it.
  • Place the kulcha on greased tray. Sprinkle a pinch of dry kasoori methi leaves over the kulcha. Bake it in preheated oven for 5 to 6 minutes.

Paneer Kulcha is ready to eat. Stuff it with a spoon of butter.
