  • White flour/Self raising flour
  • Curd
  • Baking Powder
  • Sugar
  • Coconut milk powder/Milk powder
  • Almonds
  • Pistachio
  • Cardamom
  • Golden Raisin
  • Double Cream





Instructions for Filling:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the milk powder, finely chopped or ground almonds, sugar, melted butter or ghee, and cardamom powder. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  2. Gradually add the double cream to the filling mixture and continue to mix until you achieve a moist and slightly sticky consistency. The cream helps bind the filling together.
  3. Once the filling is ready, set it aside while you prepare the dough for the naan.



Instructions For Dough:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the white flour, curd, baking powder, and sugar.

  • Gradually add water to the mixture and knead until you have a soft and smooth dough. You may need approximately 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water but add it gradually to avoid making the dough too sticky.

  • Once the dough is ready, cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for about 2-4 hours. This allows the dough to ferment slightly and develop flavour.
  • After the resting period, divide the dough into equal-sized portions and shape them into balls.
  • Place a portion of the prepared filling onto the centre of the rolled-out dough.
  • Gently fold the edges of the dough over the filling, sealing it inside. You can pinch the edges together to ensure the filling stays intact.
  • Carefully roll out the filled dough again into a flat oval or round shape, ensuring that the filling is evenly distributed within the naan.
  • Brush the surface of the filled naan with double cream.
  • Preheat your Weber MASTER-TOUCH and use the WEBER CRAFTED PIZZA STONE.

  • Use indirect cooking to ensure that your bread is cooked well. Alternatively, you can use direct cooking as well if you're in a hurry to have your delicious Peshwari naan. Flip it over as soon as one side is cooked, only for direct cooking.
  • There you go! Enjoy it with your delicious curry.
