Take about 2 tbsp of oil in a pan.
Add tomato puree to it and cook it for 2-3 minutes.
Add ginger paste.
Then add Ketchup mix we prepared earlier.

Cook it well for 2-3 minutes.
Turn of the gas flame
Add curd and mix it well. Then add fresh cream for creaminess.

Step 5: Making of Dough for Indian Bread (Kulcha)

Take some refined wheat flour in a bowl.
Add salt, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and mix well.
After that, add oil, curd and again mix well with hands.
Add water for binding and make a dough.
Note that our dough must be soft.
Knead the dough for minimum 10 minutes.
Brush the dough with oil and give it a rest of 2 hours.
After that, again knead the dough for 4-5 minutes.
Partition the dough into equal ball sized doughs.

Step 6: Making of Indian Bread (Kulcha)

Take the ball sized dough on a board and make it a bit flat with a rolling pin.
Now, sprinkle few black sesame seeds and finely chopped Coriander Leaves on it.
Then, flip it and again roll it with a rolling pin to make an oval shaped bread .
Now apply some water on the surface of bread not consisting sesame and corrainder.
Now it is ready for cooking!!
Now preheat a Tawa (pan) on gas stove with high flame for about 2-3 minutes.
Make a bit of splash of water on it.
Put the bread on the tawa(pan) in such a way that the surface of bread containing sesame seeds and corrainder remains upside.
You will find that the bread will start to perforate a bit. When this happens, turn the Tawa (pan) upside down and let the bread be cooked on the upper side also.
The bread will inflate a bit more.
Now take the pan off from the stove flame and now our Indian bread is ready.
Apply some butter on it.

Add sugar.
Use blender to mix and dissolve the sugar perfectly into curd.
Pour this lassi in a glass.
Put some strawberry syrup on top of it for garnishing.
