Kulchas are Indian flat breads similar to naans. The only difference is baking soda is used instead of yeast to ferment the dough. You can have various different flavours like garlic, mint, coriander, paneer etc etc..Sesame seeds or poppy seeds are often used while rolling. Hot flavourful kulchas served with a knob of butter taste Heavenly with any side dish.

Flour / Maida .... 3 cups
Yogurt ............. 3 tbsps
Baking soda .... 1/4 tsp
Baking powder .. 1/2 tsp
Sugar .......... 1tsp
Salt .......... to taste
Oil .......... 2 tbsps
Garlic ....... 1 pod (crushed)
Sesame seeds .. to sprinkle

1. In a large bowl mix the flour with garlic, yogurt, baking powder, soda, salt, sugar and 1 tbsp oil. 
2. Knead to a soft dough using water. Knead it well with greased hands.Cover with a wet muslin cloth and set aside for 4-5 hours.
3.Remove from the cloth and knead again with greased hands.

4. Roll into round or oblong shape using oil. (do not use flour to roll)
5. Sprinkle sesame seeds on the surface and lightly roll again so that the seeds don't fall out while roasting.

7. Serve hot with a knob of butter or as you prefer.
