Naan-without-yeast

The first time when I tried making naan at home,I took the recipe from a cookbook and it had yeast in it.My hubby does not liked the smell of yeast,me neitherSick. May be I dint knew the right way of using it(but I used an active one,that's for sure!)
The next time,almost after 2 yearsRaised Eyebrow,I tried out the same recipe,omitting the yeast part. It came out quite good! DancingI thought of sharing with you all!

Aloo gobi I tried after I got the recipe from my friend S.It tastes great with this Naan.

Naan without yeast recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 3 Hr    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Makes: 6

Ingredients

Maida/All pupose flour 2 cups
Fresh thick curds 1/2 cup
Milk,warm 1/2 cup
Sugar 1/2 tsp
Salt 1 tsp
Baking powder 3/4 tsp
Cooking soda 3/4 tsp
Melted Ghee/Butter 4 tsps

Method:

  1. Sieve maida with baking powder and cooking soda for 3 times.( to ensure even mixing) take the seived flour in a bowl and make a dent in the centre. Pour milk,curd,salt,sugar in that dent.
  2. n1-horz
  3. Mix well after a minute,gather the flour with your finger tips and dont knead hard.Keep aside covered for 2-3 hours. (U can keep upto 7-8 hours)Knead the dough softly at the time of making and make even sized balls.The size should be larger than our chapatti making ball.
  4. n2-horz
  5. Dust the rolling platform generously with maida and roll it and pull one edge to make a tear shape.( I could not get that shape this time properly I dont know) Apply water on top of naan and turn over it to the hot tawa so that the water applied part sticks to the pan.
  6. n3-horz
  7. Cook covered in medium flame and after a minute if u open,u could see it has puffed up.Now turn the pan upside down and cook the otherside on direct flame till the other side becomes light golden in colour.If u r not comfortable in this u can simply take and put the nan in direct flame as u do for roties ,otherwise also u can turn over it in tawa itself and cook.Its your choice.But cooking in direct flame sure gives a good finish to the naan. Apply butter/ghee over both sides and serve hot.! I served with aloo gobi AngelIt is coming very very soft and please do try it and tell me how it came!!!

  49. Hi

    I am following your blog for some time and find your receipies simple and delicious.

    I am using same receipe you gave for naan from last so many years and it never failed.

    You can use same dough for Bhathuras as well. Mean you have deep fry instead of roasing on tawa.

    with best wishes

    ReplyDelete
  80. May be its the quality of the flour or some times either the cooking soda if its too much or oil/butter too much in the prepared dough there are chances of turning yellow.
    But major thing is the flour...
