Ingredients for Naan:
- 2 ½ cup flour
- Salt to taste
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp sugar
- 3 1/3 tbsp milk
- 5 tsp clarified butter (ghee)/oil
- 1/3 onion seeds
- 1 tsp melon (magaz) seeds
Directions for making Naan:
Note: If you have trouble keep the rolls in place when raw, secure them with toothpicks before placing in the fridge.
Sieve the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder into a bowl. Add enough water to make a hard dough.
Whisk egg, sugar and milk in a bowl and knead into the dough to make it soft and smooth. Cover with moist cloth, keep aside for 10 minutes.
Add oil, knead and punch the dough, cover again with moist cloth, keep aside for 2 hours to allow the dough to rise.
Heat the oven to 175 degrees C.
Divide the dough into 6 balls and place on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle onion and melon seeds, flatten the balls slightly, cover and keep aside for 5 minutes.
Flatten each ball between the palms to make a round disc, then stretch on one side to form an elongated oval.
Place on a greases baking tray and bake for 2 to 3 minutes.
Serve hot, as an accompaniment to any curry dishes.
