Refined wheat flour ( Maida) - 3 cups
Dry yeast - I had a 5g packet
Sugar - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Curd - 3 tbsp
Cooking soda - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tsps
Preparing the yeast mixture
In a cup of warm water, add a tsp of sugar and the yeast and keep aside, it will bubble a bit which is an indication that the yeast is working. Keep for about 15- 20 minutes
In the meantime, sift the flour.
Add salt, 1 tsp sugar, oil, curd, soda
Make a well in the centre and slowly add the prepared yeast mixture and fold in
Bring the flour together to a slightly moist but firm dough
Keep aside covered, or enclose in a damp cloth for about 3-5 hours
The dough will rise to more than double.
I did press the dough in between and kept it aside again to let it rise again.
Take portions of dough ( lime sized) and dust the surface with flour and roll out a thick round bread.
Press in whatever you wish as garnish - for a few I put in sesame seeds and kasuri methi and some I left plain
Roast in a pan with a little butter, ghee or oil ( whatever you can eat without guilt)
I also made some channa with the kulcha. I got a pat on my back for both! La, I wished you had stayed back another day!
