Hello friends today we are going to talk about, the most famous dish among the North Indian cuisine, “Amritsari kulcha”. There are many people who are fond of eating North Indian food but in Delhi it’s very hard to find the taste of kulchas similar to Amritsar.
The Amritsari kulcha is almost like a stuffed roti cooked in a tandoor. But it’s not exactly a roti because it is meant to rise like a kulcha. So the dough is kneaded with some curd and contains a bit of baking soda. The kulcha has a filling – of potatoes, onion, cauliflower and other vegetables with small coriander bits, chillies and onions that dot the surface.
Kulcha King sells Amritsari kulchas – but the name is a misnomer to us Dilliwallahs, who see kulchas as a light, baked bread.
You will find three or four kinds of kulchas here. The Mixed Kulcha has potatoes, cauliflower florets, methi (fenugreek) greens, onion, ginger and coriander leaves (Rs.60 for one, Rs. 90 for two).
The Masala Kulcha is flavoured with black pepper, green chillies, carom seeds (ajwain) and coriander (Rs 70/110).
Then there is a Paneer Kulcha – with cottage cheese, coriander, green chillies and masalas (Rs 80/130) and a Masala Paneer Kulcha (Rs 90/130).
The kulchas are smeared with hot butter and served with a very light chholey preparation, and a tart and runny chutney, prepared with tamarind, dhaniya and chopped onions. Two kulchas are like a hearty meal.
In Amritsar we can find the taste of kulchas in every street, but its not possible for everyone to go Amritsar to have kulchas but now you can enjoy the similar taste in Sarojini Nagar. This shop is established in 2009 which started as just a stall, now a sardar ji owns this shop. The reviews of public is amazing about the taste.
