Matar kulcha is a type of gently leavened flatbread loaded with dried white peas. Kulchas originated in Northern India as a variation of naan, essentially making it a Punjabi-styled naan. Traditionally kulchas are prepared plain and paired with a type of curry, either vegetarian or meat based, making them a versatile dish to serve at meals.

Simply make one batch of kulcha and two different curries, and everyone will have something they can enjoy. If you really like them, take some to in a stylish lunchbox.

Health Benefits

Kulchas have many health benefits in common with naan. It is a good source of iron and vitamin B, niacin, thiamine, and riboflavin. If you choose to make a whole-wheat variation, you can gain a surplus of the necessary daily requirements for magnesium, phosphorus, thiamine, and niacin. Beyond the nutritional values, kulchas provide your body with probiotics, which aid digestive health and help prevent indigestion. The sauces and spreads that normally accompany kulchas also provide supplemental health benefits.

How to make Matar Kulcha

  1. Pressure cook soaked peas. Once the pressure resales, transfer cooked peas to a bowl and mash them slightly.
