This is one of the most popular British Indian restaurant style Peshwari naan recipes
Peshwari naans take some experimentation to get right. I don’t really have a sweet tooth so if they’re too sweet, I just don’t like them. That is of course not the case with many people who love very sweet peshwari naans.
Therefore, please use the recipe below as a guide. Feel free to adjust it to your own tastes when you’re making the peshwari paste. With a bit of practice, you will find a recipe that is exactly as you want your peshwari naans to be.
If you have any left-over dough, it can be kept in the fridge for up to three days. Peshwari naans for breakfast are a real favourite with my kids. If you are planning a curry evening with friends, why not make a selection of naans? Place a plate of plain, garlic, peshwari naans and cheese and chilli naans on the table and word will get around. Your local takeaway might just call you up to ask for your secret recipe.
I learned this recipe at a local curry house. The chef there took me though the recipe step by step which I photographed for you. It’s always a lot easier when you see photographs after all.
I learned a lot of great recipes that day. That was also the day I learned to make keema naans. I will add a recipe to the site for those soon but the idea is the same. Try the meat mixture of this recipe. Then just form the meat into small balls similar to the peshwari ball you see above and follow the rest of the instructions for this recipe.
I have noticed that when making keema naans, some of the meat does show through but that is fine. It’s expected.
In the above photograph you see a dough ball with the peshwari naan filling in it. The peshari naan is rolled out flat and then cooked just like it is done for keema naans.
It isn’t as noticeable with Peshwari naans but with keema naans you will see that the meat rolls out really flat too. That is how they achieve that really flat meat in the centre of keema naans.
