Chole Kulche is a popular street food dish served in North India and is a type of white pea curry that is commonly served with Kulche, giving its name. This recipe uses a range of spices to give a distinct taste and is complemented with a lemon slice when served.
Kulcha is made from maida flour, water, a pinch of salt and a leavening agent (yeast or old kulcha dough), mixed together by hand to make a very tight dough. This dough is covered with a wet cloth and left to stand for an hour or so in a warm place. The result is a slight leavening of the flour but not much. The flour is pummeled again by hand and then rolled out using a rolling pin into a flat, round shape. It is baked in an earthen clay oven until done.
