- 4 cups of flour
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
- 2 tablespoons curd
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- Water (as needed)
- Milk powder (2 tablespoons for brushing)
- Sesame seeds or toppings of choice
- In a large bowl, combine flour, powdered sugar, salt, milk, yeast, curd, and melted butter.
- Knead the dough until it is soft and pliable, adding water if necessary. Allow it to rise in a warm place for approximately 1.25 hours or until doubled in size.
Pan-Cooked Roghni Naan
Place a pan on medium-high heat and allow it to become hot. Ensure the pan is well-heated before placing the naan. Take a portion of the Roghni Naan dough and shape it into rounds. Leave the edges slightly thicker to achieve a traditional naan texture. Dampen one side of the naan with water. This step helps the naan adhere to the pan while cooking.
Place the water-dampened side of the naan downward onto the hot pan. The moisture will create steam, aiding in the naan’s cooking process. Brush the dry side of the naan with a mixture of milk powder and regular milk. This combination enhances the flavor and adds a touch of creaminess.
Cook the naan for approximately 1.5 minutes on medium-low heat. Rotate the naan as needed to ensure even cooking. The goal is to achieve a light golden color on the bottom side. Once the bottom side is golden brown, apply oil to the top side of the naan. Carefully flip the naan and continue cooking until the other side turns golden brown. Adjust heat as needed to avoid burning.
Tawa-Cooked Roghni Naan:
Set a tawa on medium-high heat and allow it to become hot. A well-heated tawa ensures proper cooking and a delightful texture for the naan. Take a portion of the Roghni Naan dough and shape it into rounds. Place the shaped naan onto the hot tawa.
Brush one side of the naan with oil. This step adds a crispiness to the naan and prevents it from sticking to the tawa. Cover the tawa with a lid to create steam, aiding in the cooking process. Allow the naan to cook for approximately 1.5 minutes on one side.
After 1.5 minutes, carefully flip the naan to cook the other side. Adjust the heat as needed to achieve an even golden-brown color. Once both sides are cooked to perfection, apply a generous amount of butter to the naan. This step enhances the flavor and adds a rich, melt-in-your-mouth experience.
Oven-Baked Roghni Naan
Set your oven to 400°F (200°C) and switch the broil setting to high. Ensure the oven has reached the desired temperature before placing the naan inside. Take a portion of the Roghni Naan dough and shape it into a round or oval naan. Ensure an even thickness for consistent baking.
Brush one side of the shaped naan with milk. This step adds moisture and aids in achieving a golden-brown color during the broiling process. Carefully transfer the milk-brushed naan onto a baking tray. Ensure there is enough space between naans for even cooking. Place the baking tray in the preheated oven with the broil setting on high. Allow the naan to broil for approximately 2 minutes on each side.
Keep a close eye on the naan as it broils to prevent overcooking. The goal is to achieve a desirable golden-brown color, giving the naan a crispy texture. Once the naan has reached the desired color, carefully remove it from the oven. While still hot, brush the surface with a generous amount of butter. This step enhances the flavor and adds a delightful richness to the naan.
Garnish the naan with sesame seeds or toppings of choice. Serve the naan hot, brushing with butter for an extra layer of flavor. Whether you choose the pan, tawa, or oven method, making Roghni Naan at home is a gratifying experience.
