To begin with, knead the dough for making the kulchas. Make a semi-firm dough with refined flour, water, and salt and place it in a cool place for 1 hour covered with a moist cloth.
With the exception of oil, combine all filling ingredients and fold gently. Apply oil to your fingers and palms. Make small balls of dough (40-50 g each, or the size of a medium potato) and flatten to stuff with filling. For the complete recipe, click here.
