Main Ingredient: All-Purpose Flour | Course: Indian Bread
Serves: 8 Pieces of Bread
Level of Cooking: Medium
- All Purpose Flour – 2 Cups
- Water – ½ Cup (Lukewarm)
- Sugar – 1 Tablespoon
- Dry Yeast – ½ Tablespoon
- Oil/Ghee – 1 Tablespoon
- Salt – As per taste
- Milk – Warm (To knead)
For Garlic Naan: Garlic Cloves – 5-6 (Grounded)
For Cheese Naan: Processed Cheese – 1-2 Cubes (Grated)
For Khameeri Naan: Onion Seeds (Kalaunji) – 2-3 Tablespoons
- Take lukewarm Water in a bowl and add Sugar and Dry Yeast to it. Mix the mixture so that the Yeast and Sugar dissolved in the water well.
- Keep it aside for 15-20 minutes so that the Yeast ferments well.
- After 15-20 minutes, take a bigger bowl and add Maida, Salt and Oil to it. Mix it well. Once mixed, add the Yeast Water in the Maida mixture and start kneading it into the dough.
- You can now use Milk to knead the soft dough out if it. Knead it well.
- Cover the dough with cling wrap or a wet cloth and keep it aside for at least an hour so that the Yeast ferments well.
- After an hour or two, take out the dough. Knead the dough once again with your knuckles for a while.
- On one side, start heating your iron tawa or pan on a high flame.
- Then, make small balls out of the dough just like you make for a Chapati.
- Now, start rolling these dough balls into an oblong shape.
- Once rolled into a thin Roti, apply some Butter on the top (for Butter Naan).
- If you are making a Garlic Naan, top it with some crushed Garlic as per your liking and roll it with the rolling pin once.
- If you are making a Cheese Naan, top it with some grated Cheese as per your liking and roll it with the rolling pin once.
- If you are making a Khameeri Naan, top it with some Onion Seeds as per your liking and roll it with the rolling pin once.
- Then take the Naan in your hand and apply a generous amount of Water on the other side of Naan.
- When it is done, place this Naan on tawa or pan (which should be flaming hot). Note: Make sure the side on which you had applied water, it should be downsides.
- Let it cook that way for a minute.
- After a minute, turn the tawa upside down and toast the Naan/Bread from the upper side of Naan.
- When the Bread starts turning light brown from all over, take it out and apply a generous coating of Butter on it.
- And Tantadaaa! Your crispy-yet-soft Naans are ready.
- Make sure the lukewarm Water is just mildly warm and not too hot. If too hot, the Yeast might die rather than fermenting. Curd Rice: Taste This Amazing Homemade Simple-yet-Flavourful Dish.
