chole kulcha (PC:- )

Chole Kulche is one of the most popular north Indian dishes that is loved as street food. Kulcha is made from very fine maida flour, water, a pinch of salt and a leavening agent ( called yeast or old kulcha dough), mixed together by hand to make a very tight dough ball. This dough ball is covered with a wet cloth and left to stand for a few hours or so in a warm or hot place. The result is a slight leavening of the flour but not too much. The flour is pummelled time and again by hand and then rolled out smoothly using a rolling pin into a flat, circular shape. It is baked in an earthen clay oven (tandoor) until done.

When totally baked, it is generally brushed with butter or ghee, although this is not necessary. It is then eaten with any Indian spicy and tasty curry. In particular, a spicy chickpea curry known as chole is the dish of choice for being eaten with hot kulcha.
