* 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.
