Ingredients

For the dough

  • 1 cup All purpose flour Maida
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Curd Plain yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon Instant yeast
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking powder
  • 2 Pinches Baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Sugar - ½ tsp
  • 1.5 tablespoon Oil melted butter
  • Salt - As needed

For stuffing

  • 15 Almonds
  • 6 Cashew nuts
  • 10 Glazed cherries
  • 3 tablespoon Sugar or as needed

Instructions

  • Take flour in a mixing bowl. Add yeast, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda to it and mix well.
  • Make a dent in the middle. Add curd, milk and oil.
  • Gather together to make dough and knead well for 5 minutes until smooth. Keep aside for 2 hrs atleast.
  • Keep covered leaving enough space for the dough to rise and cover the mouth of the bowl with cling wrap or lid. Let it be a warm space.
  • The dough would have risen and doubled in volume. Punch down and knead again to make it smooth.
  • Soak almonds in warm water for an hour and peel off the skin.
  • In a blender, coarsely grind the glazed cherry, sugar, almonds and cashews. Set aside in a bowl.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal sized balls.
  • In a well dusted counter top, use your hands to spread the dough into a small disk.
  • Spoon 2 tablespoon of the ground sweet mixture.
  • Cover and pinch the ends together as shown in the picture.
  • Again dust and roll out into thick, oblong naans.
  • While rolling, if the naan shrinks back, drizzle some oil in the counter top and again roll out. 
  • Flip and roll both sides for even distribution of the mix throughout the dough.
  • Heat a pan and cook the naan in medium flame. You can cook covered to make it puff up as it makes the naan soft.
  • Flip and butter if desired and cook until brown spot appears here and there. Cook in low to medium flame for even cooking.

Notes

  • Please adjust the sugar according to suit your taste.
  • Add nuts just as mentioned, too much of almonds or cashew will give a raw smell otherwise.
  • You can add red food color too along with this stuffing to make it more colorful.
  • You can make this without yeast too.
