Method

Step 1


Heat 2 tbsps oil in a non-stick pan. Put the green peas in a hand blender and grind coarsely.

Step 2


Add cumin seeds to the pan along with onion and saute lightly. Add green peas and mix well. Add salt and ¼ tsp red chilli powder, mix and switch off the heat. Transfer into a bowl and cool.

Step 3


Place refined flour in another bowl, add salt, baking powder, milk, 2 tbsps oil and knead into a soft dough with enough water. Rest the dough for ½ hour. Divide into equal lemon sized portions.

Step 4


Add cottage cheese and chaat masala to the peas. Then add green chillies and garam masala powder and mix well.

Step 5


Pat each dough ball into a round disc, place some of the pea-cheese mixture in the centre, gather the edges and seal. Rest for 5 minutes.

Step 6


Apply a little oil on each, and pat with finger tips a little then rollout a bit thickly.

Step 7


Heat a non-stick tawa, cook each kulcha. (You can also cook in a preheated oven at 200° C for 10 minutes.)

Step 8


When the underside is done, turn it over, cover and cook till done. Apply some butter on each kulcha and serve hot.
