2014 A to Z Blogging Challenge - N is for Naan bread - Peshwari naan




Today's installment of the A to Z blogging Challenge was going to be nettle cordial using this recipe & nettle cocktail but it all suddenly got very busy with 3 fully booked weeks back to back. 385 covers in the next 9 days!


Seems like there's a lot of different versions of peshwari naan. This was mine - basic naan bread recipe with sugar, chopped pistachio, flaked almonds and sultanas.

Found this great method for making the tear drop shapes.... needs working on ;)





Peshwari naan on the griddle
Indian theme menu nights are one of my favourite - it's the flavours. The hens at this hen party said it was the best Indian meal they had ever had - makes such a difference when you make everything from scratch including the naan.
The dark bits = flavour - it's an essential part of the taste!
Homemade chapatti. We served these with yogurt dip & hoummous along with the starter. You really need high heat for these to work & puff up in the middle. Again the dark bits = flavour.

Thanks - they were my favourite naan to date! Better when small too (large ones can be rather off-putting)
