Paneer Stuffed Kulcha

Paneer stuffed kulcha 

2  1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup water
2 and 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 table spoon oil
1/2  tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
For stuffing / filling
200 grams  paneer  grated
1nos  green chilly chopped
1/2 tsp garam masala/chat masala
1 table spoon chopped coriander
salt as per taste

1 teaspoon kalonji
2 teaspoon chopped coriander leaves

Mix sugar and yeast in 1 cup of  lukewarm water and   1 cup of flour allow to bubble , This indicates the activation of yeast. This take around 15 to 20 minutes .. If small bubbles doesn’t  occur ,it shows that the yeast is not activated and you will not get a good dough. So make sure the yeast is good before making. Also take care not to use boiling or hot water because the yeast will not be activated too and again, the dough will not rise.

Now In a yeast mix bowl mix   oil , salt flour mix all together make a soft dough knead it properly kneading is very important part of it . Add water if required. Cover the dough with a wet towel in order to avoid drying out and leave in a warm place( I keep it in microwave ) to rise to almost double the size. (for 2-3 hrs),dough should be soft and springy to touch at this stage.

  For stuffing
 Mix all the studding ingredients together and make small lemon sized balls

“Preheat  the oven for 10 minutes “
Divide into small ball size, (I made 8 balls )now divide  paneer stuffing into 8 lemon sized balls now  flatten and roll it evenly into circle by using finger tips now place stuffing in center and gather all corners and seal the dough with stuffing inside it ,prepare all the dough like this  .  And let it rest for 10 minutes  and cover it up with wet cloth . now lightly dust the surface with flour and  roll it with hand  , rotate your palm and make circle kulcha .or you can make it using plastic bag place it between it and roll it with roller / belan remove gently from plastic bag and place on the, Do not make them too thick slightly larger than the other,dap little water sprinkle some kalonji and coriander ,press a it lightly . in a baking dish apply lots of butter over it and place kuclcha   bake it for 8 to 10 minutes at 220 degree Celsius.
