Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 9


  • 1 cup Wheat flour
  • 1 Cup All purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon Baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon Curd/ Yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 White/ Yellow onion finely chopped
  • As needed
  • Oil as needed
  • Butter to Smear


  • Firstly, take all purpose flour, wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix well.
  • Add milk, curd and required water as needed little by little and make a non sticky dough.
  • Knead well for 10 mins and keep aside for 1 hour. Smear a little oil over the surface.
  • I used my bread machine for kneading but you can do it in hands.
  • After that, knead again to smooth and divide into 9-10 equal sized balls.
  • Chop onion very finely using a food processor or with your knife.
  • Dust and roll out the dough into slightly thick roti.
  • Sprinkle little chopped onion below and roll gently to stick the onion in kulcha.
  • Apply water on the top and place the water applied side to the hot tawa.
  • Cook covered until the color changes and bubbles appear on top.
  • Flip and press gently to cook evenly. Let golden spots appear all over. Refer video for stuffing version.
  • Lastly, smear butter and serve.



  • Make the dough soft, not too stiff.
  • Resting time improves the softness of the kulcha.
  • Baking powder and baking soda helps in softness as well as it helps in cooking the kulcha.
  • Use white or yellow onion and also food processor for best results.
