This was a nice recipe, but it really did not taste like naan: the bread was too fluffy and too soft, not naan-like consistency and texture. It tasted nice though, albeit quite heavy. I added some pine nuts to the meat mixture to make it more interesting - I think it worked, although the end result was more Middle-Eastern tasting than Indian.
I've been making this now for the past 3 weekends in a row and each time the result is different so I change something... First week I made the naans too thick and big, second week I made them too thin and crispy. Last time I made them too small and so I have concluded that unless I find a method of shaping them perfectly I will never get them right lol! Any advice is welcome!
this is a good recipe... the dough didn't double in size like it says in the recipe, but it was soft and stretchy so it worked out fine.... also, i figured out that the 450g of flour is approx. 2 cups, and the milk and yogurt come out to approx. 1/2 to 3/4 cups each... also, the dough came out too liquidy with the amounts listed, so i kept adding until the dough seemed firm enough. other than all this, the taste was great and it was a hit with my husband :)
we stuffed this with left over eggplant curry we are vegan. it was delicious. We also stuffed some with homemade hummus and I personally found that even better. We made a few changes to the recipe, used vegan sour cream rather than yogurt and soy milk. To replace the egg we used a powdered vegan egg replacer. I'm not sure if we rolled the dough out properly because it took longer to cook than the recipe called for but that wasn't a big deal. Delicious, like Indian hot pockets!
So so so good! I always team it up with a veg curry, or even just some raita makes a perfect mouthful! I think it's the best way to eat naan, even if you're not a keen meat eater it is still amazing :) i havent tried this recipe but i'm gunna!!! xxx
Thank you. Just what the doctor ordered.
