While writing this week's review of Sher-E-Punjab, we sampled the plain naan and the garlic naan, the dense, vegetable-stuffed paratha, and onion kulcha. Our hands-down favorite, and the best bread to get with the spicy goat vindaloo and fiery chili chicken at this little restaurant and sweet shop, is the fantastically crispy onion kulcha.
Kulcha is a Punjabi flatbread made with a high gluten flour and a fermented starter in a traditional tandoori oven. The bread is highly spiced and rubbed with butter while baking. The naans at Sher-E-Punjab are excellent, but the kulcha is exceptional.
