- Wheafree Maida Replacer : 1¼ Cup (200g)
- Wheafree Baking Powder: 1 teaspoon
- Baking Soda: ½ teaspoon
- Sugar: 1 teaspoon
- Salt: ½ teaspoon
- Oil: 1 tablespoon
- Curd: 60ml
- Milk: 85ml
- Egg White: 1 (optional)
- Take Wheafree Gluten Free Maida Replacer in a large mixing bowl.
- Add Wheafree Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt and Sugar in the bowl.
- Give the dry ingredients a good stir.
- Then pour oil and curd.
- You can also add 1 egg white (well whisked) to increase the softness of the naan bread.
- Add milk little by little according to dough consistency.
- Begin to knead the dough adding more milk if needed. Knead it very well until soft and pliable. It should become soft and non sticky.
- Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm place (for example: beside a stovetop or in an preheated oven (at low) along with a bowl of warm water.
- Once the dough is ready to go, transfer it to a floured work surface and divide it into proportions.
- Take a ball, cover it with some Wheafree Maida Replacer (don't use too much flour as it can toughen the naan). Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough ball until it form an oval shape about 1/4 inch thick.
- Season the naan with some Kasuri Methi and Kalonji (Onion Seeds) and lightly press or roll on it with light hand.
- Heat up the Electric Tandoor over high heat and lightly grease the surface of the plate with some oil to avoid the naan from sticking to the tandoor.
- Place the naan on the Tandoor plate and let it bake for about 4-5 mins while keeping a check on it in between. Let it puff up and bubble. Switch off the Tandoor once baked spots appear.
- Take out the naan, brush it with some melted butter/oil, serve warm.
Griddle / Tawa
- Warm the tawa on medium heat. To check if tawa is ready sprinkle a few drops of water on tawa, water should sizzle.
- Wet your palms with water and apply on lower side of the naan.
- Put the wet side of the naan on the tawa so that it sticks and does not come out. Lightly press on it.
- Turn the tawa over the flame keeping it about 2 inch away from the flames to cook the naan from top.
- Once the naan starts browning from the top, flip the tawa and keep it directly on the flame to let it cook from the other side as well.
- Take off the naan and brush it with some melted butter/oil, serve warm.
- You can use gas tandoor or pressure cooker upside down on gas for making the naan.
