How to make Kashmiri Naan made with AASHIRVAAD Select Atta Recipe?

  • Add warm water, sugar and yeast to a large bowl. Mix well with a spoon.
  • Now add AASHIRVAAD Select Atta to the bowl followed by 1 Tsp Salt, and Yogurt.
  • Mix well with hands and knead it into a firm dough. Then allow the dough to rest until it has doubled in size.
  • While the dough is resting, take a separate bowl and add one crushed boiled potato, grated paneer, almonds, and cashew nuts, raisins, coriander leaves, white pepper and ½ Salt to it. This is the stuffing for your Kashmiri Naan.
  • Stir with a spoon until all the ingredients are mixed well.
  • Now once your dough has doubled in size, knead it for a few seconds and then prepare dough balls with it. They should be the size of your palm.
  • Take the dough balls and flatten them with your hands. Dust them with some flour, add a spoonful of the stuffing and place it in the centre.
  • Fold the flattened dough ball from all sides and cover the stuffing fully. This process is similar to the way Aloo Parathas are prepared.
  • Slowly flatten the dough with a rolling pin into a flatbread that is oval shaped. Sprinkle chopped almonds and coriander leaves on top and press gently with your fingers.
  • It is time to cook your Kashmiri Naan on the griddle. Cook it well on both sides and then brush the Naan with butter.
