Step by step recipe
1) In a bowl, break open 1 egg and mix it with the 250 ml milk. After properly mixing the egg and milk into a soluble mixture add sugar and baking soda to it for fermenting the same.
2) Now add in the refined flour along with the yeast and knead this into a tight dough. Make sure the dough is not too tight. We have added yeast to make a soft dough and give naan a restaurant-like texture .
3) After kneading the dough, brush it with some ghee and let it rest for 45 mins at least. The resting time will allow yeast to grow and ferment the dough properly giving it a proper taste.
4) Meanwhile, melt some ghee in a Select Stainless Steel Frying Panand add all the tadka ingredients: cumin seeds, chopped ginger and chopped garlic. Saute these till they are brown and have infused their taste and flavour in the ghee.
5) After the added ingredients turn brown add in the chopped spinach along with 2 tbsp milk and let it cook till the spinach reduces. Season the spinach mixture properly and take it off the heat.
6) Now, it’s time for The most interesting ingredient of the recipe: Cheese ! Mix in the cheese to the spinach mixture and keep it aside for some time.
7) Now take the dough and knead it for some time. While you knead, roll the dough into a flat sheet and cut out circles.
8) . Take one circle at a time and stuff it with the spinach and cheese stuffing and properly enclose them giving it a ball like shape.
9) Put the stuffed naan rolls on a Meyer Bakemaster Cookie Trayand brush them with butter (this we do as a greasing step and also to add flavour; you can also add some garlic to the butter), sprinkle some sesame seeds (this adds to the dressing of the naan balls), kasoori methi (for final Punjabi look and feel) and chilli powder (chilli will give your naan balls some authentic Indian taste).
10) Preheat the oven and now bake the naan balls for 12-15 minutes or until slightly brown. Serve it hot.
