Amritsari aloo kulcha

Kulcha is a kind of bread made of maida . They are very famous in Punjab and Delhi. Punjab especially amritsar is very famous for its stuffed kulchas. Maida roti is filled with spicy potato and onion stuffing and baked in tandoor or tawa. My mother used to add anardana also in stuffing and this will add a new aroma to it.
