How to make Cranberry Whole Wheat Naan Recipe

  1. To begin the preparation of Cranberry and Prune Chutney Whole Wheat Naan Recipe, take yeast and sugar in a bowl and pour luke warm water and let it sit for 5 minutes until the yeast starts bubbling. If the yeast doesn’t react discard it and start another batch.

  2. In another bowl, add flour, salt, oil and mix with your fingers, make a well in the center and pour in the frothy yeast mixture and yogurt. Mix well. We just want all the dry flour to be wet. The dough will be sticky.

  3. Thoroughly clean the counter surface, rub your fingers with little flour, transfer the dough onto the counter and start kneading. Initially it will be sticky. Knead until smooth, soft and shiny.

  4. The kneading should be “stretch, fold back” movements. Do not add too much flour while kneading. We need flour just to rub your fingers with in case dough is very difficult to handle. If you add more flour, the naan might not turn soft.

  5. Place the dough into a bowl rub oil all over the dough, and cover it with a damp cloth. Set it aside for 1 – 1.5 hours, for the dough to prove. After 1-1.5 hours the dough would have risen and it would be double the size.

  6. In the meanwhile, soak the cranberries in water for about 30 minutes. Then chop into smaller pieces. Check how to make the prune chutney by clicking on the link Spiced Prune Chutney Recipe.

  7. Once the dough is proven, knock it down (punch it with your fist), this is done to release all the air that would have collected. Gently knead for another 2 minutes.

  8. Divide the dough into equal parts (I made 4 large balls). Dust a little flour if needed to roll and press the dough.Sprinkle chopped cranberries, and spread the Spiced Prune Chutney. You can add the cranberries later also on top over the tawa. 

  9. Now bring the edges to the center sealing the stuffing in the center. Now roll the naan into any desired shape making sure not to break the stuffing out of the naan. Sprinkle some black sesame and few almond flakes on top.

  10. Heat a tawa. Grease it well with ghee. Place the rolled naan and cook covered on low flame. You will see the naan bubbling up.

  11. Turn the naan the other side and rub ghee generously and cook. Keep turning naan once in 30 seconds to 1 minute on both sides until all edges are cooked and naan is browned on both sides. Remove from tawa and again rub ghee generously on top. Repeat the process for the remaining dough.
