1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/8th tsp Baking Soda
1 tbsp sugar
salt to taste (approx 1 tsp)
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup Yogurt
1 tbsp Ghee

1 large onion, chopped very finely
2-3 chillies, slices thinly (or as per taste)
1/4 tsp Ajwain (oregano)
1/2 tsp ginger, grated
1/4 tsp cumin
salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl until blended and set aside.
Mix all the ingredients for the dough, add water if needed to make it into a soft dough.Set aside for at least 1-2 hours. Then divide the dough into small pieces and make rounds of each them. Roll it out into a small circle with the help of a rolling pin, just like you would do with rotis or parathas.
Now place little filling in the center of the rolled out dough and bring all the sides up to enclose the filling.
Press it down.
Now roll it down softly into a circle. Set the setting of your oven to broiler. once hot, place this rolled out Kulcha into a baking pan and push it into the broiler for 2-3 min until the top is browned.
Now turn the kulcha and broil for additional 2 min. Serve hot.
For Stove top method : This follows the normal method just the same way you would do for your rotis.
Heat a pan in your stove in med-high flame and place the Kulcha.
Pour down little ghee/butter/oil on all the sides of the Kulcha and cook for 3-4 min.
Turn when brown spots start appearing on the surface of the bottom end. Do the same for the other side.
Serve hot with butter melting on top and chole at the side.
