Amritsari Kulcha Chole is an authentic Punjabi recipe that originated from Amritsar, the food capital of Punjab. It combines Kulcha, a fluffy, crispy and soft multilayered oval-shaped bread (made from self-rising flour) cooked on a tawa or a tandoor, and Chole, a tangy and spicy gravy of boiled kabuli chana (chickpeas).

The soft crispy kulcha and richly aromatic spicy chole make for a tantalizing combination.
