  1. Preheat oven to 220º C.
  2. To make the kulcha dough, mix refined flour, salt, soda bicarbonate in a bowl. Add yogurt and mix well. Add oil and knead. Add milk and knead into a semi-soft dough. Rest the dough for ten minutes.
  3. To make the chole, heat oil in a kadai, add peppercorns and cumin seeds and let the seeds change colour. Add bay leaf and sauté half a minute.
