- 1 tsp of dried active yeast
- 1 tsp of sugar
- 200g plain flour
- ¼ tsp of salt
- ½ tsp of baking powder
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp of plain yoghurt
- 2 tbsp of milk
- 70g pistachios
- 35g raisins
- 1½ tsp brown sugar
- In a small bowl, mix the yeast and sugar with a tablespoon of warm water to activate. Leave for 5 minutes in a warm place until frothy.
- Meanwhile, in a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking powder.
- When the yeast is frothy add it to the flour with the oil, yoghurt and milk.
- Knead the dough, with slightly wet hands, folding as you go until it is nice and soft.
- Place the dough in a mixing bowl, cover it with cling film and leave it in a warm place to rise at least 1 hour (but longer if possible).
- Divide the dough into four balls and place on a floured surface.
- Place all ingredients for the filling into a blender and blitz to a coarse powder.
- Flatten out each ball and place about 1 tbsp of the filling into the middle. Pull up the dough to seal the filling inside then carefully roll into tear shapes about 0.5cm / ¼ inch thick.
- Heat the tava or frying pan and turn on the grill to high to heat up. Place the naan onto the pan for about a minute or two to brown on one side.
- Transfer to a baking tray (cooked side down) and cook under a hot grill for 2-5 minutes until all puffed up. Smear with butter to serve.
Tearing the naan with your hands and dip it into any dish with a thick sauce. Great with Korma or Pasanda.
