Amritsari Aloo Kulcha Recipe

Today, I am sharing my favorite Amritsari Aloo Kulcha Recipe. I get this recipe from Binjal Pandya (http://www.binjalsvegkitchen.com/amritsari-aloo-kulcha/). Amritsari Aloo Kulcha is usually a traditional Punjabi recipe. Amritsari Aloo Kulcha came from Punjab. Amritsari Aloo Kulcha mainly known as a naan (flat bread), because it is very popular in Amritsar (Punjab), it's named Amritsari Kulcha. This is type of desi-pizza, full of masala potatoes. Amritsari Aloo Kulcha is really a delicious Indian recipe offered as a main, or breakfast. Essentially or traditionally Kulcha make inside a clay tandoor, flour dough is rolled right into a flat, round shape and baked within an earthen clay oven till golden brown. When baked, it's usually rubbed together with butter (Desi Ghee), after which eaten with hot and spicy chole (chickpeas curry). Today I will provide you with steps to make both versions of Amritsari Aloo Kulcha together with oven (tandoor) and also without an oven (tandoor), usually means stove top. Both versions are extremely simple and easy, definitely no fail recipe.
