The city of Amritsar is home to some of the most delectable food in the country. Among the many culinary delights it has to offer, kulcha is one of the most famous ones. Its soft and fluffy texture is what makes it so loved, and it is a must-try when you visit the city. However, it's not practically possible to visit the city every time we crave it. Of course, there are several versions of it that you can find in other cities, but they lack that authentic flavour. If you want to relish true flavours, we suggest you consider making it at home. And don't worry, you don't need a tandoor or a bunch of ingredients to make it. In fact, you can make this popular bread using your trusty pressure cooker as well. Does it sound too good to be true? Well, try this recipe for yourself and be ready to be impressed.

The recipe for this pressure cooker Amritsari kulcha was shared by an Instagram handle, @ohcheatday. To begin with the process, add maida, curd, sugar, ghee, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a bowl. Gradually add water and milk and combine everything to form a smooth dough. Knead it well, cover it with a wet cloth, and keep it aside for some time. To prepare the filling, mash potatoes in a bowl along with all the dry masalas, chopped onion, and fresh coriander. Mix well, and divide the mixture into equal-sized balls. Now, roll out a portion of the kulcha dough and stuff it with the prepared aloo mixture. Seal the edges and roll it out using a rolling pin. Repeat the process with the remaining dough. Heat your pressure cooker on low-medium and keep it tilted so that its side is over the flame. Apply some water and place the kulcha over it. Turn it upside down and allow it to cook until crispy. Once done, top it with a dollop of butter and serve hot with chole and chutney.
