Kulcha (Punjabi: ਕੁਲਚਾ, Hindi: कुल्चा) kulcā is a type of leavened bread eaten in India and Pakistan, made from maida (wheat flour). It is particularly popular in India and Pakistan, and is usually eaten with chole.

Kulcha is a typical Punjabi recipe. Amritsar, a city in Punjab is famous for its Amritsari kulchas or Amritsari naan. Flour dough is rolled into a flat, round shape and baked in an earthen clay oven until golden brown. When baked, it is usually rubbed with butter, and then eaten with spicy chole (chickpea curry).[1]

In Pakistan, kulcha breads are largely eaten in Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan and certain parts of the Hazara and northern Punjab regions, where they are a popular breakfast item.[2]
