For me, food really can’t get any better than this (maybe except for ice cream). I love this Indian-Pakistani bread especially when it has a lot of coconut in it.
Whenever I’m in London, I eat this Na’an and consider it one of my favorite Indian foods. I was actually surprised that in India they didn’t even know what it was, but I guess that it is prevalent in certain regions of India.
I expected it to be harder to make than it was. there is no baking and the dough was easy to work with. the only tricky part was to keep the filling inside the dough when you stretch it into Na’an. We ate it with Vegetable curry and Dhal. this whole dinner took 2 hours to prepare and was just perfect.
Need ideas for dishes that go with this Peshwari Naan?
combine the dough ingredients and knead well. if it's too sticky after kneading for several minutes - add just a bit more flour.
cover and let the dough rise in a warm place for one hour. if it hasn't doubled- wait longer.
Mix the filling ingredients
When the dough is ready - take a small portion (the size of a child's fist) and flatten a bit. add one spoon of filling. lift the dough edges and join above the filling (to close the filling inside this dough ball)
Flatten the dough ball (I used a rolling pin on a floured surface) until it is quite thin. careful - if it's too thin, the filling comes out.
Use a good non-stick pan. when it's warm, put the naan for 2 minutes, flip for another minute.
Spread some coconut oil on top if you like.
Eat with some other delicious Indian foods. I had it with red Lentils dhal and vegetable curry! YUMMY
I'd love to get more feedback - questions about recipes, comments and suggestions!
