Paneer Kulcha Recipe / Restaurant Style Paneer Kulcha Recipe / Stove Top Paneer Kulcha Recipe

Stove Top Paneer Kulcha Recipe

Paneer Kulcha Recipe, an easy and super tasty stove top method. Last month from our local Indian Restaurant kids had Paneer Kulcha & Tandoori Roti. And they loved the Paneer Kulcha a lot, the paneer stuffing was so simple used fresh paneer with some chillies and spices and we liked it. Also the Kulcha was not super thick, just little thicker than Paratha and it was soft and buttered well. From that time they kept asking me to make Paneer Kulcha at home. And I myself wanted to recreate that recipe and followed my neighbor Aunt's Kulcha Recipe, which I posted few years back. And the Paneer Stuffing was also simple just like what we ate at our local restaurant. Paneer Kulcha turned out pretty good and it was so flavorful and delicious, my little one even said it was way better than the restaurant ones, and what else you need right?! Now off the recipe..

Vegan Fish Fry Recipe / Indian Style Fried Tofu / Crispy Masala Fried Tofu

Crispy Tofu Fry

Vegan Fish Fry/Tofish Fry Recipe is a healthy and tasty Appetizer prepared using Tofu. This is almost similar to our South Indian Fish Fry recipe with Ginger, Garlic and other Spice powders. We include Tofu regularly in our meal and often make this simple Vegan Fish Fry/Crispy Fried Tofu and have it for lunch or Dinner along with some salad. Unlike Paneer, Tofu doesn't have great taste and flavor, so we prefer to add up spices and fry just like Fish Fry and hence I named as Vegan Fish Fry. Here I am sharing two ways of making Vegan Fish Fry, one is shallow fried with dry flours coating and other one is just roasted with less oil and no flours coating. Now off to the recipe..
