The thoughtless glutton who gorges himself beyond the limits of his digestive fires will be consumed by limitless ills. – Thirukural

If I can cook anyone can cook, before marriage I really thought cooking is like chemistry lab experiments. I never thought, I can bake a cake on my own. Now it all happened because of the cooking blogs. While surfing for roti varieties, I found this Kulcha recipe in Gayathri's cook spot. I tried it for the first time, with little variation  and for my surprise it came out very soft and tasty.  


  • APF ( Maida) –  3 cups
  • Yogurt –  3 tsp
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp
  • Baking soda – a pinch
  • Salt – to taste
  • Sugar – 2 tsp
  • Oil –  2 tsp

Makes up to 15 -20 Kulchas


  1. Mix all the ingredients and make dough of chapathi dough consistency. Let it rest for one hour.
  2. Then take some portion of dough and roll out circle using a rolling pin. Make a slightly thin circle.
  3. Heat pan on a medium heat and cook kulchas for few seconds until blister appears on both sides.
  4. Then cook kulchas on the chapathi/ roti griller on direct heat.
  5. It will puff up very soon. Smear some oil on the cooked kulchas.
  6. Serve hot with channa masala or potato masala.
