Yes , its almost a fortnight that there has been some silence from my side. Well, the thing is I am back to Singapore after a long trip to India. I had a lovely break, just relaxing and having a great time travelling and meeting with friends and family. Indeed , it was a much needed vacation. I feel so good and refreshed. And now I am all set to try out some new recipes and continue with some serious blogging too. Though I havent cooked anything worth blogging in this last few days, I had some naans waiting in my drafts to be posted. I remember making this some couple of months back for a weekend lunch. They had tasted so good and am dying to try them once again. I had referred here for the recipe though I modified it a bit for my convinience.
Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water and leave aside for 10 minutes till it becomes frothy. Add sugar ,salt and baking soda to the flour and mix well. Mix oil and yogurt and add it to the flour. Add the yeast mixture to it and knead it to a soft dough. Cover the dough and keep in a warm place for 2 to 3 hours. Dough should double in volume.
Heat oven to 200c. Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes and divide it into 2 equal parts. Roll into 8'' oval shape , not too thin or too thick. Lightly wet your palms and place them in to the oven. You can also sprinkle some sesame seeds on them before baking. ( I simply placed the naans on a shallow baking dish, you can use a pizza stone if you have it.)
Cook for around 5 minutes till they appear a little brown on top. Remove from oven and apply some ghee or butter on it.
Serve hot with some subji or dal. I served mine with palak paneer.
