Kulcha is a classic indian flat bread made with all purpose flour/maida & yogurt.These kulchas has been stuffed with simple spiced potato filling. Resting of the dough is necessary to make fluffy kulchas..You can make these kulchas two ways - Deep fry Or Shallow Fry (on non tick pan to make it little healthier). You can serve this with any curry or eat by itself.
