Naan Bread

Hi friends, its me again, today i am with the recipe for Naan recipe. One of our spice-india visitor Marianne, requested for this recipe. And here is the recipe for Marianne, and all other visitor who love naan bread. Naan bread is orignally a punjabi recipe, though it is done with tandoori stove, i often prepare this with our home oven. It goes very well with any type of paneer, chicken curry etc. So here is the recipe just for you.....

Ingredients :

All purpose flour ( Maida ) - 1 and 1/2 cup
Egg - 1 (Optional ) , if you dont prefer to use egg, then use 1/2 cup of yogurt.
Yeast - 1 tsp ( Dissolve yeast with 1/2 cup of luke warm water)
Oil - 3 tsp ( And little more to apply on your hands.
Warm water - 1/2 cup
Baking soda - pinch
Salt - to taste ( 1/2 tsp)

Preparation :

* Take one tsp of yeast and dissolve in luke warm water and leave it for few mins.

* Now take a bowl, add the all purpose flour, add salt, pinch of baking soda and mix well.
* Now add 2 tsp of oil, and add the egg. ( If you dont prefer to add egg, then add yogurt) and mix well. * Now add the yeast water and mix well, till the dough comes without sticking. Add oil to your hands and keep mixing well, till they become very soft.
* Keep it aside for 3 - 4 hours, and allow the dough to raise.
* After 4 hours the dough would had raised high, as shown in the picture below.
* Now again apply some oil, and mix again, and make it into equal size balls as below.
* Now roll it by adding some all purpose flour, to avoid it from sticking. ( Roll it bit thick, do not roll it too thin.)

* Roll it with a roller and pull to one side, to bring the naan shape.
* Pre-heat the oven at 500 degree for 30 mins.

* Place the rolled dough on to the baking tray, and place it in the oven. It will take 3 - 4 mins to cook, then turn to the other size and cook for another 1 min.
* Wow, the yummy, hot and soft naan is ready, so now apply some butter over it and serve hot with some spicy curry. I served it with spicy kadai paneer.

Enjoy yours.........

  19. Hi Indira, Nice to see you on spice-india, and happy to know that you regulary come and visit the site. Thank you so much.

    Well, you asked wheather naan could be made out of microwave oven or kadai???

    Ho, indira, i really dont think we can make naan out of microwave.

    But out of kadai i have a option, that too if you have gas stove and not electic stove. If you have gas stove, then take a pah, heat the pan to high temperature, then place the naan over it and make sure it sticks too firmly with the kadai, then turn the kadai, and show it on the gas fire. It could be the only option, but it will take long time a make.

    So oven is the best, but if you dont have, then this is the only option.

    I will surely try this way and post it on my site as soon as possible. And hope my explaination helped you.

    Do come again and visit spice-india.
