Gobi Masala Naan ( Cauliflower masala stuffed Naan)

This Stuffed Naan came out very well though I tried it for the first time after lot of research on the web:) Kids loved it! I followed the ingredients for making naan from Sailu's blog!

For Naan
2 cups all purpose flour (Maida)
1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup yogurt
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
a dash of baking soda
2 tsp butter

For stuffing

1 cup grated cauliflower
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/3 cup finely chopped tomato
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp kitchen king masala
salt to taste
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
2 tsp oil


Sift the flour along with baking powder and baking soda. Make a dough by adding yogurt, milk, salt and sugar. Cover with lid and set aside for 2 hours.

Mean while we can prepare the stuffing. Heat a pan and add oil. Splutter with cumin and fennel seeds. Add onions, ginger-garlic paste and fry for 10-15 seconds. Add grated cauliflower, all the masalas, tomato and salt. Mix well and cook for 10 minutes or till all the ingredients blend well and all the moisture has evaporated. The stuffing should be dry. Switch off the heat and let the stuffing cool down completely.

To make stuffed naans, Knead the dough for a minute, dust the working surface with some flour and take a small portion of the dough and roll it on the dry surface. Take a spoon full of stuffing and fill it inside the dough as we do for Parathas. Seal the dough in an elongated manner very gently. Roll the stuffed dough only towards one direction very gently so that the stuffing does not leak out.
Heat the iron tawa (Cast iron skillet) and transfer the prepared dough to the tawa. On medium heat cook the naan on both the sides. You can add little butter and cook till it is brown on both the sides.
Serve hot with chutney and kids will love it with tomato ketchup.

I am sending this to Pari's "Cooking with bread event".

I am also sending my Amish Friendship Bread and Christmas tree Pizza to this event!!

Re: paruppu usili . More oil is tasty but steaming is also good if health conscious.
