Why are Naans so Delicious!

Soft and buttery,  filling and crispy, let’s explore what is the secret behind this lip-smacking Naan. So that, you have the privilege of cooking them anytime in your kitchen.

Total Time: 40 min

Preparation Time: 40 min

Cooking Time: 10 min

What all you need in kitchen:

Flour – 4 cups
Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
Salt – 1 teaspoon
Plain low-fat yogurt – 2 cups

Do the following:

  1. Blend the flour, the baking powder and the salt together.
  2. Keep stirring in the yogurt till the dough becomes hard enough for a spoon, then mix it in a bowl till it holds together well, adding more flour if necessary.
  3. Turn it out upon a floured surface and continue kneading for about 5 minutes till the dough feels smooth and elastic.
  4. Make a bowl out of dough and place it in an oiled bowl, covered with a towel, to rest for an hour or longer.
  5. Now, cut the ball into 10 equal pieces. Form each into a ball and press the balls flat into round discs.
  6. Heat a large frying pan, essentially a non-stick one
  7. Heat your oven to about 500 and keep the broiler on
  8. Take 1 piece of dough at a time and roll it out on a floured surface till it is about 8-10 inches across and less than 1/4 inch thick.
  9. Lay it on a hot griddle and cook it over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
  10. It will turn fluffy from all sides, and there will be some blackish-brown spots on the bottom.
  11. Slide a spatula under the naan and transfer it to the oven, directly onto the rack, for a minute or two, just till it finishes puffing up into a balloon and begins to color lightly on top.
  12. Take out naan from the oven and brush it lightly with melted butter if you like.
  13. Continue this way with all the dough, collecting the bread pieces into a napkin-lined basket.
  14. Serve the breads hot, fresh from the oven, or let them cool and then, wrap them up.
  15. To heat again, wrap them in aluminum foil, in packets of 4 – 5 breads and put them in a 400-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

We endeavour to make this season more memorable by talking about some sugar coated  recipes that suit the interest of Hindu fasting yet experiments with the taste.
Go sweet with khoya til laddoo
It’s for sure that your will receive enough calories with something sweet. So, why not to try khoya til laddoo. Khoya is basically the dried whole milk. The roasted and  grinded sesame seeds are mixed with khoya and powdered sugar. Believe us, it is the replacement chocolates.
Mix of fruity flavours – Fruit Raita
Finely chop different fruits of your choice say  pineapple, oranges, banana and mix them in yogurt salted with rock salt and spiced up with pepper and roasted sesame seeds. It will compensate for the tooty fruity ice-cream to be avoided in the fasting season.
Saboodana kheer that smells heaven
The fine saboodana is blended in hot sweet milk and fragmented with cardamom and saffron. The kheer tastes awesome, sabo tastes like jelly crystals. Try this kheer and you won’t mind if Navratri season stays the entire year.
After being informed about these recipes, we hope that these nine days become  more pleasant for you.
