Wheat Kulcha

Kulcha and naan are the famous Indian breads. Generally prepared with the all-purpose flour but I wanted to make it a little healthy so I used the wheat flour and it turned out to be equally good and soft. This kulcha has the tandoor like texture as we cook it directly on the flame. It can be enjoyed with any Indian Gravy of your choice like Amritsari Chole, Aloo Gravy, Paneer Butter Masala or Matar Paneer, etc.

Also try: Missi Roti or Tandoori Roti.

Course: Main Course

Cuisine: North Indian

Time: Preparation – 2 hours 15 mins, Cooking – 15 mins, Total – 2.5 hours

Servings: 3 (makes 6 kulchas)


  1. Wheat Flour – 1 1/2 cup
  2. Curd (Dahi or Plain Yogurt) – 2 tbsp
  3. Oil – 2 tbsp
  4. Milk – 3 tbsp
  5. Sugar – 1 tsp
  6. Baking Powder – 1/2 tsp
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Black Cumin Seeds – 1 tbsp
  9. Coriander Leaves – 2-3 tbsp
  10. Warm Water – as required (to knead the dough)
  11. Ghee (or unsalted butter) – as required

PS: 1 Cup = 250 ML

How to make Wheat Kulcha:

  1. Take a bowl. Add wheat flour, curd, baking powder, sugar, oil, milk and salt. Mix well
  2. Start adding warm water. Knead to make a soft smooth dough
  3. Cover the dough with damp cloth and keep aside for 2-3 hours
  4. After 2-3 hours knead the dough again. Dust it if required
  5. Make 6 equal portion balls
  6. Take a ball and dust it with wheat flour
  7. Start rolling it with a rolling-pin and make roughly 2-3 inches circle
  8. Sprinkle black cumin seeds and coriander leaves
  9. Start rolling again and make a 5-6 inches circle. Do not make it too thin, it has to be a little thick
  10. Flip over (the plain side) and spread 1-2 tsp of water (it’ll help the kulcha to stick to the tawa)
  11. Meanwhile heat the tawa (do not use a non stick pan as kulcha will not stick)
  12. When tawa is hot. Place the kulcha with your hand on it from the plain side (black cumin seeds side stays on the top)
  13. Wait till bubbles starts to appear
  14. Flip the entire tawa and place it directly on the flame  with 2-3 inches gap (to get the tandoor style texture and kulcha will remain stick to the tawa)
  15. When brown spots starts to appear take it off the flame. Remove the kulcha from the tawa with help of a spoon or a spatula (below images for your reference)
  16. Top it with ghee or butter
  17. Your Wheat Kulcha is ready. Serve hot with your favorite curry.
