Who has not heard of the Garlic Naan? All of us might not have eaten it, but we have heard about it a lot. It is an Indian dish, which has the potential of delighting your taste buds in the way that none dish can. Right?
Grand Pavilion, the most visited Indian restaurant which is famous in Terrigal and Sydney for its special menu always runs short of Garlic Naan, since each customer demands it and keeps on ordering it again and again until they are full till neck.
We have dedicated today’s blog to all the Naan-Lovers.
Accept it or not
When we like a particular dish, we are willing to know its recipe irrespective of whether we have stepped into the kitchen or not. LOL!
RECIPE – GARLIC NAAN
Step 1: Prepare The Dough
Measure 3.25 cups of all-purpose flour. Put it in a big bowl. Now add 1 teaspoon of salt and whisk both the items nicely. Keep a stand mixer on a standby mode and use it when you put the following items consecutively:
- Lukewarm Water
Allow it to bloom for 7 to 10 minutes.
Step 2: Prepare One More Mixture
Once you find out that the yeast has gotten activated then add the following in a bowl:
- Lukewarm Milk
Once these have gotten mixed nicely, sift the flour mixture into this bowl.
Step 3: Put The Main Ingredient – Garlic
Add the grated garlic. Or you can use garlic paste as well. Start adding the flour alongside – 1 tablespoon at a time. Keep on adding it until the dough achieves a nice consistency.
Step 4: Let The Dough Rest
In the end, knead the dough with your hands. Once it comes out to be softened, then transfer it to a greased bowl. Allow it to rest for 1 to 1.5 hours. Make sure you have covered with the kitchen towel.
Step 5: Division Of The Dough
After the required time has passed, the dough is ready to be used. Punch the dough to release the air. Make sure you are dividing it into 8 equal parts.
Step 6: Prepare The Flavour Enhancing Butter Garlic Mix
Heat a pan to melt the butter. Then add minced garlic & chopped cilantro to it. Make sure you are keeping this mix ready to brush the naan with this.
Step 7: Heat The Iron Skillet
Make sure you are using the iron skillet to prepare the naan. It should be heated at medium-high heat.
Roll a dough bowl until it achieves a nice oval shape. It should be 10 to 11 inches long and 6 to 7 inches wide. Stretch it lengthwise with the help of a roller.
Step 8: Cook Your Naan
Now transfer the naan to the heated iron skillet. Do not turn it over until you see the bubbles on the top of it. Before turning, brush the naan with the garlic butter mix.
Step 9: Cook Directly On The Gas
To bring out the nice smoky flavour, cook the naan directly on the flame. Do not stretch this step for more than 15 to 20 seconds.
