How to make it
- Proof yeast by adding it to a mixture of sugar and warm water for 5 minutes. If it is active it will become frothy and bubbly.
- In a big bowl add dry ingredients for naan dough, mix, form a well in the middle and add wet ingredients including the yeast and mix again. Add enough water to form a pliant dough. Cover with a damp cloth and leave in a warm place to rise for at least 3-4 hours. The dough should rise to double its original size.
- While the naan dough is rising, put the goat mince in a separate bowl and add all the ingredients, except onions to it and mix well.
- Chop onions in a chopper till they are finely chopped, make sure that you do not over chop and they become a paste. Take these out in a small bowl and drain the water from them using a spatula, a wide mouthed spoon or even better squeeze them with your hands.
- Mix the drained chopped onions to the minced meat mixture. Leave to marinate in a fridge for at least 2-3 hours so that the flavours blend in.
- Once the naan dough has risen to almost double its size, make 8 equal portions. Set the oven to high on broiler. Make sure that the baking stone is placed correctly on the middle rack (I have to buy one yet so I use a cookie sheet lined with greased aluminium foil :).
- Roll out each portion a little and add minced meat mixture (almost the same size ball as the naan ball was or smaller) in the middle. Roll up the sides and make a ball again. Pat flat with your hands and using some flour once again roll out to a 7 - 8 inch naan. Pinch the top using your finger tips so that the whole front of the naan is punctured. This will ensure that the steam has a way to escape and the naans do not become too soggy from the meat juices.
- Broil in batches on a baking stone or greased aluminium foil 3-5 minutes front side, once the top gets browned flip and broil for another 1-2 minues on the other side if needed.
- Glaze with a bit of butter as soon as the naan comes out of the oven. Serve hot with mint/ tamarind chutney.
- Tips: If the naans are burning keep the door of the oven open as your oven may be too hot.
- The minced meat mixture can be made one day in adavnce and any left over minced meat mixture can be used to make khachey qeema ki tikkiyaan, or patties for a burger.
- Apologies at this time for not having a photo but will post as soon as I make some next time.
