Peshawari Naan | Indian Sweet Flat Bread on stovetop | Naan stuffed with dry fruits


Hey guys, how about trying Peshawari Naan? Once you taste this, you will never like to go for the old boring naan. Please don't forget to comment, like, share and SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such easy and exciting recipes.

Naan is an Indian flat bread that can be made easily at home on stove-top.

Unlike the other naans, this naan is stuffed with nuts, raisins and coconut to give a sweet flavour. Kids will love to eat these by itself but it is generally served with Butter Chicken or any other curry, even dal.

If you follow my recipe, you will get soft, spongy naans which will stay soft even after 2 days. After trying this recipe, I am sure you won't go to any restaurant to eat naan.

All use the same all-purpose (maida) flour but the ingredients that I use makes them soft, unlike the restaurant naans which become chewy once they are cold.

All you need to do is blend flour, salt, milk, yeast, sugar, yogurt, ghee in a food processor for preparing a quick dough. Heat the oven for 1 minute and switch it off so that it remains warm and place the dough in the oven. Within 15-45 minutes the dough will double in size.

Roll the naan to your desired shape and size and stuff it with some coarsely ground almonds, cashew nuts, raisins and pistachios, not to forget the desiccated coconut which enhances the sweet flavour.

Enjoy Peshawari naan with your favourite curry and share it with your friends.
