Tandoori Naan in Toaster

thumb_img_3032_1024 SERVES: 3-4

Quick Light Fresh Baked Bread

COOKING TIME: 5-7 minutes

400 grams all purpose flour
400 ml plain yogurt
5-10 drops of oil

thumb_img_3033_1024STEP 1.  Add yogurt to the flour, make dough soft enough that is not sticking to your hands. Take oil on your hand and roll the dough with greased palm to finish. Wrap the dough in wet cloth napkin (water squeezed). Rest the dough for at least 30 minutes before rolling into naan.
STEP 2.  Make balls of dough for the size and thickness that you want the naan to be. Roll the balls with pastry roller to make naan.
STEP 3.  Place rolled naan on to heated non-stick pan, turn it around when you see brown dots on one side.

1. Keep rolling the dough balls into naan while one is cooking on the pan so that next one is ready as soon as you move the first one into the toaster.
2. Usually a tennis ball size of roll would make a 6-8 inch diameter naan.
3. Due to elasticity of all purpose flour the dough may not be able to be rolled in round shaped naan, they usually come out oblong shaped. This shape fits well into toaster slots.
4. Depending on the size of the slot of your toaster you may want to cut the naan in half before sliding it into the toaster so that all of it bakes well.

100g yogurt
4 inch frozen garlic or 8 crushed cloves

1 tablespoon meat masala powder
1/2 teaspoon orange food colour

  • On the Stove: Put marinated chicken on a heated pan with one tablespoon of oil, cook for 5 minutes on high heat with lid on and then add one tablespoon of any sweet chilli sauce or half a teaspoon of sugar. Cook for about 5 minutes with lid open on high flame. Chicken will be dry, little burnt and crisp with smokey flavour.
  • On the Barbecue: Put chicken pieces on BBQ sticks and put them on high fire for 5 minutes turning in between.
  • In the Oven-To bake place chicken on silver foil (poke holes in foil cause the chicken will let out water) and put in oven for 20 minutes.
