One of the frequently ordered dishes in the restaurant is Naan. Naan, a popular flat bread in India and the neighboring countries, can be made with or without yeast.
Our host for #BreadBakes,Mir of The Schizo Chef,wanted us to make a yeasted flat bread and this naan was the first dish that came to my mind!
Whole wheat flour- 1 cup
All purpose flour-1/2 cup
Instant yeast-3/4 teaspoon
Yogurt - 2 teaspoons
Warm milk-1/4 cup
Salt to taste
For the topping:
Mix the following ingredients in a plate and keep aside
Garlic-2 large pods, finely sliced
Sesame seeds- 2 teaspoons
Kalonji / onion seeds- 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander leaves, finely chopped - a few sprigs
Melted butter for brushing
Take both the flours in a bowl, add salt.yeast,oil and yogurt.
Mix well and add milk little by little .Add more water if necessary. Knead to a smooth dough. Continue kneading for 8-10 minutes. Apply oil all over the dough and keep covered in an oiled bowl. Let it double in volume.
Take a ball of dough and flatten it a bit. Pres on side of this disc over the plate with the ingredients listed under topping.Roll out with the topping part facing upwards.
Cook on both sides over a heated griddle till brown spots appear on both sides. Remove from griddle and immediately brush with melted butter.
Serve with a side dish of your choice...
- You can vary the quantity of whole wheat flour and APF. Or you can use just one kind of flour.
- Don't add milk all in one go.Add little by little.
- The sesame, kalonji in the topping is optional.But it adds a nice flavor / crunch to the naan.
