Ingredients

Naan

  • 1 x 7g sachet dried yeast
  • 2 tsp golden caster sugar
  • 300g strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 25g butter or ghee, melted, plus extra 2-3 tbsp for greasing and brushing
  • 150ml natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp nigella seeds

For the Peshawari filling

  • 1 x 7g sachet dried yeast
  • 2 tsp golden caster sugar
  • 300g strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 25g butter or ghee, melted, plus extra 2-3 tbsp for greasing and brushing
  • 150ml natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp nigella seeds
  • 4 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoon (more or less) sugar
  • 400g almond flakes
  • 6 tablespoons single cream
  • 40 sultanas
  • 2 tablespoon melted ghee or butter

Method

  • STEP 1
    Put 125ml warm water into a bowl and sprinkle over the yeast and 1 tsp of the sugar. Leave for 10-15 mins or until frothy. In a larger bowl put the flour, remaining sugar, ½ tsp salt and baking powder. Mix together then make a well in the centre in which to pour the melted butter, yogurt, nigella seeds and yeast mixture. Stir well, then start to bring the mixture together with your hands. If it’s very wet add a spoonful of flour but if it’s dry add a splash more warm water. It should be a very soft dough but not so wet that it won’t come together into a ball of dough. When you’re happy with the consistency, start kneading, first in the bowl then transfer the mixture onto a well floured surface and continue to knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic but still soft. Grease a large bowl with extra melted butter or ghee then shape the dough into a ball and place in the prepared bowl. Cover and leave in a warm place for about 1 hr or until doubled in size.
  • STEP 2
    For the Peshwari paste, in a food processor, blend the almond flakes, cream, desiccated coconut, sugar and sultanas until they form a thick paste. You may need to adjust the recipe by adding more cream to form the paste if it is too crumbly or more almond flakes if too wet.
  • STEP 3
    Kneed the peshwari paste into a pliable dough.
  • STEP 4
    Now take a tennis ball sized ball of the naan dough and make a shallow hole in it with your thumb.
  • STEP 5
    Place the peshwari paste dough into it and then fold the naan dough around the peshwari paste.
  • STEP 6
    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Take one of the balls of dough and roll it out to form a teardrop shape that’s approximately 21cm long and around 13cm at the widest part. When the pan is very hot, carefully lay the naan bread into it. Let it dry fry and puff up for about 3 mins, then turn over and cook on the other side for another 3-4 mins or until cooked through and charred in patches. Heat oven to its lowest setting and put the cooked naan bread on a baking sheet. Brush with a little melted butter and put it on the baking sheet and cover with foil. Keep warm in the oven and layer up the cooked naans one on top of each other as you make them, brushing each one with melted butter or ghee as you go.
