We've not had an Indian meal for ages. Hard to come by in Spain, but easy to do at home.
So yesterday, I pottered effortlessly in the kitchen making:
a spicy chicken and tomato based curry
a yellow moong dal
onion relish &
a mustard seed & cavolo nero vegetable side dish
Plus soya naans.
I've always got soyas in.
Cream, milks, which I sub regularly for dairy products in cooking, and haven't had a mishap yet.
soya naan ingredients (4)
400g strong white flour
120g fresh leaven
(250g) 125g water + 125g soya milk +
Provomel plain soya yoghurt
a little oil
melted ghee for the baking
mix the leaven with the water compound and rest for 5 mins
add the remaining ingredients and bring together to a dough
Rest for 15mins
Knead briefly, and rest your dough for 6 - 8 hours till well risen
Shape into 4 equal sized rounds, and press & roll out to your naan shape
Fire up a cast iron pan, plus lid
brush your naan shapes with the ghee, and fry for 2 or 3 mins either side, lid on, until they are puffed up to twice the size, and slightly charred in parts
Serve with your Indian meal,
and freeze any remaining naans for another day.
