Cooker Naan

Indian Cooking Recipe : Cooker Naan

Ingredients :

500 grams maida
1½ tsp sugar
20 grams fresh yeast or 2 tsp dry yeast
2 tbsp fresh curds
25 grams ghee or margarine or butter
1 tsp salt

Method :

Sieve the flour properly.
Put the sugar and yeast in 1 teacup of warm water and mix till the yeast dissolves. Cover and wait for 5 to 7 minutes until the mixture is full of froth.
Put this liquid along with the curds, ghee and salt to the flour and make soft dough by using some more warm water.
Knead the dough for at least 6 to 7 minutes.
Keep the dough under a wet cloth for 30 minutes. Knead again for 1 minute.
Divide the dough into 20 small parts and shape into naans.
Grease a pressure cooker very lightly with oil. Take out the lid from the pressure cooker and heat it upside down.
Take each naan, apply a little water on one side and stick the wet side around the inside of the pressure cooker till brown spots appear. Continue the same procedure for the remaining naans. (One at a time you can apply 3 to 4 naans inside the walls of a pressure cooker).
Take out and apply butter.
Ready to serve.
