ABOUT Stuffed kulcha chana RECIPE

Kulcha Chana, a Delhi based street food, is quite popular among the people. The spicy and lemony Chana with the butter roasted Kulcha is a famous evening snack among Delhites. The Chana or the masala matar is a semi thick chickpea gravy flavored with a lot of spices like red chili powder, green chili, garam masala etc., which gives it a very spicy taste. Often lemon juice is also added to the Chana to make it more tasteful. The Kulcha is roasted in butter, which totally compliments the Chana. Since now a days most people are in a hurry of everything and don’t even have proper time to eat. So, to easy out their problem, a very innovative way has evolved to serve the Chana Kulcha. The Kulcha is divided into 2 parts and the Chana is spread on one of the sides along with .freshly cut tomatoes and onions. The Stuffed Chana Kulcha is an ideal choice for food on the go and that too so delicious.
