These really are not that much more difficult to make than our regular Naan recipe. They just take a little more time to assemble.

When you break open these warm soft Naan, there’s a very thin layer of ground cashews, coconut and raisins right through the centre. They are unbelievably delicious as a snack too.

When paired with a sweet and spicy curry though, these naan really shine, especially when brushed with butter to make them even more irresistible.

Coconut Cashew Raisin Naan. This peshwari style naan is stuffed with a very thin layer of ground cashews, coconut and raisins. It's utterly delicious with our Mango Chicken Curry recipe.

Ingredients

For the Naan Filling

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup toasted cashews

For the Naan Dough

  • 1 envelope regular yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/4 cup + 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 4 cups bread flour (approximately)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Instructions

To prepare the Naan Filling

In a food processor pulse together the coconut, raisins and cashews.

Pulse together until the cashews and raisins are finely chopped but do not over process into a paste. It should still be crumbly.

Any leftover filling can be stored in an airtight plastic container in the freezer until next time.

To prepare the Naan Dough

Dissolve 1 teaspoon sugar in 1 cup water and sprinkle the yeast over the surface. Set aside for about 10 minutes until the yeast gets foamy.

Mix together 3 cups of the flour with the risen yeast and all of the remaining ingredients.

Knead in enough flour to make a soft dough and continue to knead for 5 minutes after that.

Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free spot for about an hour or so until the dough is at least double in size.

Knead the dough again for a few minutes before shaping the dough into golf ball sized pieces.

Cover and let these rise for an additional 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. 

Heat a cast iron skillet or flat grill over medium heat. An electric pancake grill on high setting also works well. Alternatively, like those in the photo, these can be cooked directly on a gas or charcoal grill on low heat just like these flatbreads.

Roll the dough balls out to about 6 inch long oval shapes.

Spoon about a rounded tablespoon or two of the filling on one half of the dough and fold over to cover.

Pinch the edges together well to seal then gently roll out the naan again into 6 inch oval shapes, flipping them several times during the rolling out process.

Cook each one in the unoiled skillet for a couple of minutes on each side until completely cooked through and lightly browned.

You can brush them with butter as they come off the grill if you like.

Hold the warm naan in a 150 degree oven as you cook the remaining flat breads.

Makes about 10 naan

The measurements sure didn’t work out for me, nor your technique. But I eventually added enough flour and I made some of them garlic and others paneer filled.

Loving the look of this recipe lots, I attempted my own Naans a good while back and they were just..ok, but these look really delicious and flavoursome in their own right! Hope to give this a whirl next time I make a curry :)
