Chur Chur Naan – Baked Version

0  comments

Punjabi cuisine is famous for its extraordinary taste and variety. Naan’s, Kulcha's, and parathas are a staple of Punjabi cuisine. Chur Chur Naan is a variation of the regular naan recipe. 

The main ingredients and stuffing's are similar to any Naan recipe. One major difference is that this variety of naan is layered and generously coated with a layer of Ghee/Butter. Chur Chur Naan as the name suggests literally translated into crumbled or crushed naan.

More About Chur Chur Naan

Chur Chur Naan can have a stuffing of aloo, Gobi, paneer, onion, or any other stuffing of your choice. Naan’s is traditionally cooked on a Tawa or a tandoor. But, since the Chur Chur naan is already loaded with layers of Ghee/butter to give it a layered texture, I tried to make a healthier baked version of this recipe.

Step By Step Recipe of Chur Chur Naan

Firstly in a kneading bowl take All-purpose flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and mix everything well to combine.

Then add ghee/butter and start mixing. Mix until the dry ingredients get coated with the fat evenly. The process of mixing fat with flour is almost the same as we do for Samosas or Kachoris. This will help to get the flaky texture. Here I have used ghee (Clarified Butter).

Now add curd and lukewarm water to bind the dough. Dough should be smooth and soft. Cover the kneaded dough with a clean kitchen towel or cling wrap and keep aside for at least 30 minutes. The resting time will help to develop the gluten and the dough will be stretchable.

Meanwhile, let’s prepare the stuffing. To make the stuffing, in a bowl, take mashed boiled potatoes, minced garlic, chopped green chilies, Chopped onions, coriander leaves, and all the dry spices. Mix well and the stuffing is ready. You may like to adjust the amount of spices as per your liking. Keep it aside. If you are making these for kids then you may like to skip green chilies.

After 30 minutes of resting, take the dough on counter and knead it again. Using a rolling pin spread the dough into a rectangular sheet.

Apply an even layer of ghee/butter on the rolled sheet of dough. As I mentioned earlier, I am using ghee for the recipe. However you may like to replace ghee with butter as per your likings. Sprinkle some dry flour and gently fold it from both the sides lengthwise.

Apply ghee, dust some dry flour and fold again like earlier. After all these folds, you will get the dough into a cylindrical shape. This process will help to get the multiple layers and result in flaky Naan. Rest the shaped dough in refrigerator after covering with cling wrap. The refrigeration of the dough will help to stabilize the fat.

After 15 minutes of resting, take the dough out from the refrigerator. Meanwhile keep the oven for preheating at 200 C.

Divide the shaped dough into 6 equal portions. Spread each portion a little bit with your hands and stuff it with prepared stuffing. Seal all the open edges and roll them into a circular disc of even thickness without getting the stuffing out.

Now transfer the shaped Naan on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Always remember to line the tray as it will not let your bakes stick to the tin or the tray.
