For this month’s Indian Cooking Challenge (ICC), Valli wanted us to make an Indian bread, Amritsari Aloo Kulcha. After the April mega marathon where explored the dishes from all the Indian states, I’ve decided not to skip any ICC editions because it is a good opportunity to learn regional dishes from different parts of India. Also Valli always makes it a point to challenge us to try dishes that are unique and tries to get authentic recipes of the same.

This month’s challenge fit right into our meal plan. While my in-laws were here we ate rotis at least 3~4 times a week, so these stuffed parathas fit right in. If it’s just us, I make rotis may be once a week, since my husband travels almost weekly. 


These parathas are very much like aloo paratha (potato stuffed bread), but the bread is kulcha dough made using baking soda and yogurt. Parathas turned out thick, soft and delicious.
