One of the most famous forms of street food in
Amritsar is the Amritsari Kulcha.
The history of kulchas goes back to the Mughals and Nizams. Khansamas during Shah Jahan’s time used to stuff kulchas with vegetables and they made it popular inthe darbar. It was so tasty that it became the official bread for breakfast or lunch by the time Shah Jehan took to the throne. Legends also have it that he preferred these breads over biryanis.
