For Paneer Kulcha
1. Take one dough ball and roll it out into small puri like circle (approx. 4-5 inch diameter) on rolling board using rolling pin. If required, dust some dry flour over it while rolling to avoid sticking. Put one portion of stuffing (approx. 1½ tablespoons) in the center of the circle. Wrap and enclose it with all sides of dough circle and seal its top merging point. This process will make a stuffed ball.
2. Now, gently press it and flatten its surface from top and bottom (like pattie).
3. Dust rolling board a little and roll it out into 6-7 inch diameter circle (like paratha).
4. Heat tawa over medium flame. Once it’s hot enough, place raw kulcha over it and cook on medium flame for 30 seconds. Flip it and cook for 20-30 seconds. Flip and cook until brown spots appear on the bottom side, flip again and cook until brown spots appear on another side.
5. Take it away from heat and spread butter or ghee as per your preference. Prepare remaining kulchas in similar way and serve hot.
