Stuffed Naan

Stuffed Naan Recipe with step by step pictures- Flaky leavened flatbread with a scrumptious filling is a stuffed naan. Generally, naan is prepared using yeast, only all-purpose flour and is cooked in an earthen oven. However, this stuffed naan recipe does not call for any tandoor i.e. earthen oven and yeast. Further, a combination of all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour is used to make the aloo naan. Talking about the stuffing, there can be a number of different stuffings that can be used to make naan. This naan recipe uses potatoes for the stuffing. The potatoes have been flavored with fresh mint leaves, coriander leaves, and green chilies. The stuffing has the crunch of chopped onions and is flavored with spices. Stuffed naan, as such is an Indian bread but I would like to categorize it as a meal, especially when teamed up with some raita and salad. So do try this recipe for your weekend brunch, I am sure you will love it.

Ingredients required for Stuffed Naan:

Flours: All-purpose flour and whole wheat flour both are used to make the potato naan. You can also make it using only all-purpose flour. However, I would not recommend using only whole wheat flour as that would not give the desired texture.

Leavening agent: Yeast is the most commonly used leavening agent for making naan. However, in this recipe, baking soda has been used. I do not like the soapy flavor of baking soda; therefore I have used Eno instead. If baking soda is used, its quantity of less than Eno and the same has been mentioned in the recipe card.

Potatoes: Boiled and mashed potatoes have been used to make the potato stuffed naan. It is important that the potatoes are mashed properly.

Onions, greens: To add bite and flavor to the naan chopped onions are added along with coriander leaves, mint leaves, and green chilies.

Spices: Chaat masala, red chili powder, coriander seeds, black pepper powder are added to spice up the naan.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
