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.
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.
As already mentioned, the stuffing for naan can be prepared using potatoes, as explained in this recipe, other than this, paneer, vegetables, etc can be used to make stuffed naan. You can also try and make naan using cheese as the stuffing.
