Garlic Kulcha

For a long time, I wanted to experiment making different "breads" from India.  I love onion kulchas from Punjabi restaurants and thought I would try this one when I saw it.  Although not as greasy as the restaurants, still very yummy.

adapted from Chef in You

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups multi grain flour (I used Sujata)
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed (or other) oil
  • 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • salt to taste
  • water
Directions:
  1. Put all dry ingredients in bowl of stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
  2. Add the wet ingredients (except the water) to the dry ingredients and turn on mixer on low. Add a little water at a time until dough forms. Knead until it is smooth.  Cover and let rest for 1-2 hours. (I let mine sit for 3 hours).
  3. Heat a cast iron or other skillet over medium heat.  Roll out dough on a floured surface as it may stick.  Put on hot skillet to cook and it will puff up.  Cook both sides and enjoy with your favorite dal, shaak/sabji or just plain.
