Naan breads are readily available and they come in really handy when you want a quick snack or dinner. They are perfect as a pizza base and you can use any topping of your choice.
I usually prefer to make the naan from scratch. A healthier option would be to use wheat flour instead of all purpose flour or maybe a combination of both. They all taste equally good.
I used some sour cream as a topping though cheese would be great as well. I made some curried soy mince and used that as a topping. It was filling and delicious.
Any tomato sauce or tomato pulp from a jar would be suitable to use.
PREP: 40 minutes COOK TIME: 10-15 minutes
1 naan bread
2 tbsp tomato sauce
½ cup soy mince
2 tbsp sour cream
For the soy mince:
100 gms textured soy chunks
1 onion, chopped finely
2-3 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Soak the soy chunks in hot water for 30 minutes and drain. Follow the directions on the pack. Mince the soy chunks in a blender or processor.
Heat the oil and add the onions. When they are cooked, add all the spices with 2 tablespoons of water. Add the minced soy immediately and mix well. The mixture should be dry.
Place the naan on a lined baking sheet and spread the tomato sauce over it. Spoon the soy mince over the tomato sauce and bake for 5 minutes. Top with sour cream. Garnish with dried herbs and serve hot.
