KASHMIRI NAAN

Photobucket

We went for our family dinner few weeks ago and had a North Indian meal consisting naan with  chicken and fish dishes. Since then my son had requested me to prepare the Kashmiri Naan. This naan is similar to regular ones except dry fruit mix is added to the dough. Though we have tasted other with butter and garlic but this is our top most favorite.

I didn't bake but cook them using flat pan on stove top.  It turns out wonderful and tasted almost the same as the restaurant ones.

KASHMIRI NAAN
Yield    4 Naan

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 c plus 1 T warm water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp active dry yeast
2 T melted butter
1/4 C yogurt
1 tsp sugar
4 heaped T dry fruit /nut
extra butter to apply on top

METHOD

*  In a small bowl, combine water, sugar and yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes until frothy.

*  Place flour, melted butter, yeast mixture, yogurt and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix well to form a soft dough.

*  Transfer dough onto floured board and knead for 10 minutes until elastic.

*  Place dough in an oiled and covered bowl for 2 hours.

*  Gently punch  the dough to release air. Transfer onto floured board. Divide dough into 4 ball.

*  Roll out dough then place 1 heaped tablespoon filling, shape dough into a ball then roll out into tear shaped bread.

*  Fry each naan without oil using heated flat pan until bubbles appear,  flip and cook the other side until brown spots appear. Remove from heat and apply butter if you like.

*  Repeat with the rest of the dough. Serve hot.

I love naans :) I always order them in the Indian restaurants :) the only thing that stops me from trying making them at home is that I heard they have to be baked in special oven.. How did it tasted the way you made it?

Great job on these. The fruit and nuts are a neat addition.

Peggy said...

oooh, I love this type of naan! I think the dried fruit in it go very well with any type of curry!

Treat and Trick said...

Medeja...In rest they used tandoor but you can either use oven or pan fried them at home. Almost the same taste what we had in the restaurant...

The Mom Chef said...

What a fantastic idea. I would have never thought to make naan with fruit. it's such a versatile bread. Thanks so much for passing your recipe along.

Ameya said...

Homemade naans are the best-I also prefer the stovetop ones to the baked ones. I have to try the Kashmiri version now!!

Angela FRS said...

This looks great--what kind of dried fruits do you recommend?

scrambledhenfruit said...

I've never put fruit and nuts in naan before- it sounds wonderful!

Treat and Trick said...

Angela FRS...You can use ready made fruit mix consisting of raisin, red/green cherries, sultana and mixed peel or mix your own, it works well for this recipe...

Shirley said...

The garlic and butter naan is my favorite, but I like the addition of dried fruit!

Ambreen said...

My mouth is watering, this looks soooo good. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

Sweet and Savory said...

What a terrific dish and perfect for brunch. Would you link it up to Let's Do Brunch? It is just right.

Actually, I only looked at four of your recipes and I want to make them all.
