Masala Paneer Naan

Continuing the theme from yesterday, here is a slightly healthier version of Naan for Day 2 Week 2 of BM #38. 

Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup
Maida / All Purpose Flour 1 cup
Salt 3/4 tsp
Oil 1 Tbsp
Sugar 1 tsp
Yeast 2 tsp 
Warm Water 1/2 cup
For the Filling - 
Paneer, fresh crumbled or grated 3/4 cup
Onions, finely chopped 3 Tbsp
Green Chillies, finely chopped 1 tsp (or to taste)
Coriander Leaves 2 Tbsp
Salt to taste

Masala Paneer Naan

Method Of Preparation -

In a small bowl of warm water, add sugar and yeast and let it froth up (leave it for about 8-10 min).

In a mixing bowl, add the flours, salt, oil and the yeast solution. 

Add water and knead into a soft and pliable dough. Knead for about 4-5 minutes, cover and set aside in a warm place for rising.

Meanwhile prepare the filling by mixing all the ingredients listed under 'For the filling'. Make 8 equal portions and set aside.

After the dough has doubled, make 8 portions. Slightly roll each portion of the dough and place one portion of the filling. Close the edges and roll the dough into an oblong shape (or whatever shape you prefer). Repeat for the remaining 7 portions of the dough.

Set the oven to Hi Broil. Place the rolled out dough in a greased baking tray. ( I was able to arrange 4 of them in one batch). Spray oil on the top. Bake in the oven for under 2 minutes, flip and bake for another minute or so keeping a careful eye on them.

Remove (Optionally brush with some butter for a glossy finish which I didn't do) and bake the next batch. 

Serve them hot with your choice of accompaniment.
