Aloo-Anardana Kulcha

For dinner tonight I decided not to have steamed rice and instead Kulcha. Now Kulcha is fried and base is Maida or All Purpose Flour. It’s not Naan and not like Naan either. It’s thick like Naan but tastes different for sure. Usually Kulcha can be stuffed with any kind of stuffing be it lentils or meat but I thought to try with potatoes and adding Pomegranate seeds. #foodie #kolkatafoodie #MadhusKitchen
