Aloo Kulcha!!

An Indian Flat Bread!!!!!

For Dough:
2 cup All purpose flour + 1/2 cup more
1 tsp salt
2 tbs Yogurt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1-2 tbs oil( any oil will work)
1/4+ 1/2 cup water(lukewarm)

For Filling:
1 big size boiled potato
2 tbs chopped onion
2 Green chili chopped
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp amachur Powder(Dry Mango powder)
chili powder to taste
Salt to taste
fresh Coriander chopped(may be handful)

1 tbs Nigella Seeds/Black onion seeds/kalonji seeds.

In a big Bowl mix all the dry ingredient for the dough. Add 2 tbs yogurt and mix it.
Then add 1/2 cup of water little by little.Dough might be lil sticky at this point then add another 1/2 cup of flour to make a a lil stiff dough.
Keep in a bowl and add 2 tbs oil and knead it a lil bit then covered and keep it in warm place for at least 2 hr(I warm the oven for 2-3 min and then switch it off and keep the dough there ).

Meanwhile prepare the filling mixture
Mash the boiled potato really well(if using boiled potato from fridge then grate the potato).Mix with rest of the ingredient,adjust the taste according to your taste, i likes it to be spicy so i add really good amount of green chilli :)

After giving the dough rest, take a golf ball size dough,with the help of
dry flour roll out into round shape.Stuff the rounded dough with the 1 tbs of mixture in the center and then reshape it into small ball and Roll it out to a desired thickness making sure that you don’t press it too hard and that the filling does not come out of the dough.Sprinkle some black onion seeds and give some spots of water over it and put it on a baking tray and Broil in the oven on high and bake them for 1 min until you see some brown spots.Brush it with butter and serve!!
You can also cook it on griddle like chapati.

Serve it with your choice of curry!!
