Paneer Cheese Kulcha

Kulchas are the desi version of bread traditionally baked in a tandoor, usually served alongside an accompaniment to make a wholesome meal. But what if you could stuff a wholesome meal INTO your kulcha itself?

These soft kulchas do exactly that by filling themselves generously with nutritious protein-rich paneer and cheesy calcium.

Now no matter how busy they are, nobody in your family will ever skip meals again as you can simply roll one of these kulchas up and chomp away to good health!
