Stuffed Amritsari Kulcha for Breakfast
After umpteen numbers of requests from the visitors, today I have decided to make mouth-watering and delectable Stuffed Amritsari Kulcha. Being a food lover I always wanted to eat this amazing North Indian brunch. My first memories of Kulcha are from avenues of Delhi that is the place I had it first with my mother when I was a child. But I wanted to eat and relish this food in the city of the Golden Temple – Amritsar, the place of its birth.
When it comes to food, I am crazy and nobody can stop me. Therefore, I went alone to this city to relish the Amritsari Kulcha. While making this recipe those wonderful memories and feeling passed through my heart. Here I bring to your doorstep the hearty food of Amritsar: The Amritsari Kulcha.
