DRY FRUIT NAAN



This flat bread needs no introduction. It was a popular bread served in an Indian restaurant. Normally made using clay oven or tandoor but  it can easily prepared in your kitchen by baking them in a oven or  on stove top.

Naan was a regular fare in our home since my son was a great fan of this naan stuffed with dry fruit. Am using ready made mixture of sultanas, glaced cherries and mixed peel as its stuffing.

I had successfully pan fried these naan without oil and it doesn't  stick to my cast iron pan at all.  To get a perfect result, make sure the pan was  fully  heated  before placing the naan and cook them using medium heat.

DRY FRUIT NAAN
Yield     :     4

2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp instant yeast
2 tablespoon yogurt
2 tablespoon oil
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
4 tablespoon dry fruit mix
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon warm water

METHOD

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt.

Mix in yogurt, oil and gradually add water.

Forms into soft dough using a mixer or by hand.  Knead by hand for 10 minutes on floured board.

Transfer dough onto greased and covered bowl. Let rise until double for 1.5-2 hours.

Punch dough down. Divide into 4 portion.



Shape each portion into round, place a tablespoon of dry fruit in center. Seal the edges and shape into a ball again.



Roll out each ball into tear shaped naan. Complete the rest of the dough.

Fry each naan on a preheated heavy based pan until brown spots appear on the surface on both sides.



Remove and serve hot with your favorite gravy.

Beautiful! I thought naan had a egg in it. Does it normally and you've just adjusted the recipe? Could I just use coconut to make a peshawari naan or is there more to the filling. Sometimes it seems there might be some sweetened condensed milk in it.

Visiting from Plucky's Second Thought link up. I've only ever had plain naan. Your naan with dried fruits is beautiful and sounds delicious.

What a great snack! Usually I like to eat naan with something to dip it in, but this fruit filled naan looks like it would be pefect just as a snack. Delicious idea!

I haven't had very much experience with making breads (the closest I have come is a tortilla) but I think I could handle this recipe! Once I find some instant yeast I may pay a visit to your blog again!

Jann Olson said...

I have made flatbread, but have never tried making Nann. Sounds delicious with the dried fruit. Would not have thought it would be served with gravy. I have a great cast iron skillet. I think I need to give it a whirl. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
