Baby Naan

This is a fairly easy recipe. I cooked the naans on the tawa and they came out very well.

Ingredients :

1. 2 cup white flour.

2. 2 tsp sugar.

3. 7 gms yeast (I used instant yeast but dry yeast is also fine).

4. 1/4 cup milk.

5. 3 table spoon curd.

6. water for kneading.

7. 1/2 tsp baking soda.

8. salt to taste


Step 1. Follow the instructions of the packet to activate the yeast. If using instant yeast just mix the powder in the flour.

Step 2. Mix the yeast in the flour, mix the baking soda and salt, also add the curd. Add the sugar in the milk and mix in the flour. Make a smooth dough. Let it rest for half an hour. The dough should rise to double its size.

Step 3. Knead the dough well and make small balls. Roll out the naans and sprinkle onion seeds on it. Press well so that the seeds stick to the naan.

Step 4. Put the naan on hot tawa and cover with a lid for a minute, so that the naan rise. Then turn the other side and grill. The Naan takes very less time to rise and cook. Apply ghee and serve.

Serve with Punjabi chikkad Chole (click to view recipe)
