Stuffed Indian Bread: Whole Wheat Aloo Kulcha in Black & Decker Crisp N' Bake Convection Air Fry Countertop Oven

Hello Foodies,
          I have been using Black & Decker Crisp N' Bake Convection Air Fry Countertop Oven since a couple of months and have been consistently impressed with how quickly they heat up food. But unlike a microwave, my food does not come out deformed or rubbery. I appreciate its simplicity and ease of use. I tried to make everything in it besides toast: baked scones, bread loaf, biscuits. I will share the recipes soon. 


I like it for reheating pizza too! So today here I am sharing my Indian flatbread kulcha recipe. This kulcha is made using whole wheat flour, stuffed with potato-spices stuffing and cooked in black n decker countertop oven. They came out crispy and scrumptious.

           This whole wheat flour Amritsari aloo kulcha is one of the Indian flatbreads traditionally baked in a clay tandoor. Since we don't have a tandoor oven at home, so I have cooked it in the Black n Decker Convection oven. This stuffed kulcha is perfect for soaking up all the delicious Indian curries. I served my stuffed kulcha with paneer kadhai. In the preparation of this Amritsari Aloo Kulcha, I have not used onion and garlic, so its a no onion-no garlic recipe. If you like, you can add onion and garlic while preparing potato stuffing. So guys let's get started!

  • No onion - no garlic recipe
  • Healthy and tasty.

Instructions:
To Prepare Dough:
  • Sieve the whole wheat flour(most important step).
  • Use the dough hook attachment of the kitchen aid and keep it ready and set the bowl of the kitchen aid machine in position.
  • In a mixer bowl add water 1cup, sugar, yeast, olive oil, whole wheat flour, salt, and kasuri methi.
  • Now, lock the hook knob and start the mixer at speed 2 first and keep alternating between speed 2 and speed 4 as the dough starts forming.
  • Stop the mixer and scrape the dry flour from the sides of the bowls using a spatula.
  • Start the mixer and add the remaining ¼ cup of water slowly, 2 Tbsp at a time in the bowl. 
  • Now, add oil to make the dough less sticky and keep mixing on low speed until dough forms.
  • Cover with cling wrap and keep aside for 1 hour.


To Prepare Aloo Stuffing for Kulcha:
  • In a bowl add boiled and mashed potatoes, red chili powder, turmeric, coriander-cumin powder, black pepper, amchur powder, salt, green chilies, ginger paste, coriander leaves and mix well.

To Prepare Kulcha:
  • After 60 minutes, place the dough and sprinkle some flour on the floor and start kneading the dough.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and roll to make dough balls. 
  • Take one dough ball and roll to 3-4 inch circular disk and place aloo stuffing in the center.
  • Take the edge and start pleating, bringing to the center.
  • Sprinkle some flour on the floor and gently roll the dough into 6-7 inch circle using fingers or you can use a rolling pin too.


To Cook Amritsari Aloo Kulcha In the Black n Decker Convection Oven and Air Fryer:
  • Spread some oil/butter over the pan.
  • Place the rolled kulcha on the pan and give it milk wash(milk wash is optional) and add chopped Coriander leaves.
  • Bake it in a convection oven at 400 F for about 10 minutes or until the top is golden brown in color.
  • Remove from the convection oven and spread some ghee on the top.
  • Healthy, Whole Wheat flour Amritsari Aloo Kulcha is ready to serve, serve them hot with mix veg, chole, dal makhani, paneer kadhai or with curd. Enjoy!!!

My Take:
  • You can use baking powder instead of instant yeast.
  • I have used this Black and Decker Convection Oven to make the kulcha and KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer to prepare the dough.
  • You can use milk instead of water to knead the dough.
  • You can use butter instead of olive oil as well.
