Posted September 20, 2018 10:29:58 This recipe for naan is the quintessential naan dish.
The naan sandwiches are made from bread soaked in a mixture of milk and butter.
Toasted bread is then wrapped around a naan, and placed on top.
It’s a classic naan meal.
To toast bread with butter, you’ll need a baking sheet, a large bowl, and a baking rack.
This recipe calls for bread soaked for several hours in milk and milk-butter.
You can also use whole wheat bread if you prefer.
To make this recipe, you can use all-purpose flour or all-wheat flour.
If you have an old-fashioned oven, a gas-powered or electric one, or a slow cooker, this recipe will work just fine.
To cook the bread in the oven, it’s easiest to place the bread on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
The bread will get softer as it cools.
In the refrigerator, you may want to leave the bread for 10 minutes before cutting into it.
When you’re ready to toast the bread, the oven will warm up to 165 degrees F. You’ll want to use a fork to cut the bread into cubes.
Place the bread cubes on the baking tray.
Place them on a plate lined with aluminum foil, if possible.
Repeat with the rest of the bread.
For a more traditional naan taste, you could use white bread or even whole wheat.
To roast the bread and butter together, place it in a large roasting pan over medium-high heat.
Add the butter and a pinch of salt.
Stir well and let the butter melt.
As the butter melts, the bread will be browned and begin to caramelize.
Cook the bread until it starts to brown and turn golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Transfer the bread to a cutting board or serving platter, and serve immediately.
This naan can also be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.
To prepare a more authentic naan (like this one), you can also roast the butter separately, but it will be a little thinner.
When the butter is heated, you will notice it is slightly bubbly.
Place some of the melted butter on a rack in the roasting oven, and roast the remaining butter for about 10 to 12 minutes.
Remove the butter from the roaster.
After about 10 minutes, you should see the browned butter begin to separate from the bread itself.
Remove from the oven and allow the bread rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
Let the bread cool completely before slicing.
This version has a bit of a chewy texture.
