So here we are coming up with the rich and traditional taste of KALADI KULCHA.
INGREDIENTS for Kaladi Kulcha
To be served with…
Preparation time – 5-7 minutes
Servers – 1
1. Take a non-stick Tawa and place it on a gas stove.
2. Put oil in the centre of the Tawa and place Kaladi on it.
3. Keep the flame between low to medium and gently press the Kaladi.
4. In 2 to 3 minutes, Kaladi will be cooked from bottom and must have turned brown in color.
5. Now turn the side of the Kaladi and likewise cook from the other side too.
6. Keep pressing the Kaladi intermittently so that it cooks from inside too. But don’t overdo which will make it messy.
7. When the Kaladi is almost done, immediately take Kulcha and mark a cut in the center in a way to make a sandwich out of it.
8. Apply some butter on the side of same Tawa, toss Kulcha to warm it.
9. Place/fill Kaladi in the middle of the Kulcha. Apply some chutney on Kaladi right now if you want, otherwise, you are serving with Chutneys, obviously.
10. You Kaladi Kulcha is ready to be served. You may cut Kulcha from the center diving into two, if you like.
11. Service hot with Pudina/Anardana Chutney and Tamarind Dates Chutney or Imli aur pyaz ki chutney.
* Kaladi has its own fats depending upon the quality of Kaladi. At times a good Kaladi needs very very less or rather no oil and get cooked in the fats released by itself on being placed on hot Tawa.
* Use of only non stick Tawa is recommended otherwise if you make kaladi on iron Tawa, you will find less Kaladi in your plate and more sticked to the Tawa. 🙂
* While cooking, you may find the bubbles on the sides of Kaladi which is a normal thing.
* Keep an eye on the Kaladi while cooking to prevent it from burning.
* In the method, you have been suggested to press the Kaladi intermittently while cooking.
However there’s no hard and fast rule that how many times you need to press the Kaladi with how much pressure. It depends upon the thickness and hardness of each Kaladi.
Thick Kaladi placed in refrigerator is comparatively harder than the thin Kaladi placed out of refrigerator. So apply your own judgement.
* You can eat this Kaladi with Bread or chapatis or as it is even. As this is the recipe of Kaladi Kulcha, so Kulcha was must here.
* Kaladi becomes hard if turns cool and as a result, at times, becomes tough to chew. So better serve only hot.
* As mentioned, Kaladi Kulcha is mainly served with Pudina Chutney and Tamarind Date Chutney, but as we like Imli aur Pyaz ki Chutney more with Kaladi Kulcha, so we enjoyed Kaladi Kulcha with Pudina Chutney and Imli aur Pyaz ki Chutney.
