Kulcha Recipe With Step By Step Pictures

I prepared this Kulcha to have with Nalli Nahari I cooked yesterday. Nalli Nihari turned out exactly like the one we had tried in a local restaurant, so everyone in my family wanted to relive the experience and asked me to cook Kulcha to enjoy with Nihari.

And this Kulcha too turned out to be awesome. Together they were superb. You can find the recipe of Nalli Nahari here and the method to prepare Kulcha is below along with instructions.
