Recipe: Indian Naan with Nigella and Sesame

Bread with spices and aromatic herbs
July 26, 2009

NigellaI bought nigella during my visit to the grocery, and I finally could prepare some recipes with it. Nigella is called also black cumin or black onion, and its aroma is strong and very similar to the onion flavour.


This recipe is inspired by Kalonji Naan of Asha, as I told you is not the only one I chose from her incredible blog, try also Jackfruit Kebabs.

Indian Naan with Kalonji and Sesame

Indian Naan with Nigella and Sesame

Ingredients
200g all-purpose flour
200g durum wheat flour
7g dry yeast
150ml warm water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nigella
5 tbsp milk
2 tbsp whole yogurth
30ml seed oil
butter
nigella and sesame seeds

Naan risingDirections
Pour sugar and dry yeast in warm water and let rest 10 minutes.
Mix all-purpose flour, durum wheat flour, salt and nigella. Add milk, yogurth and oil, and mix well. Add yeast mixture and work the mixture into a dough.
Let it rise in warm place for an hour and a half.
Divide into 8 equal portions, and shape them into balls. Press each ball with your hands to a circle 10 cm in diameter.
Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with kalonji and sesame seeds. Press them down gently, then repeat with other balls.
Let the naan rise again for 15 minutes.
Put the baking stone in the oven and preheat it to 200° C (392 F). Put two or three naans on the baking stone, close the oven and cook 7-8 minutes, until golden brown.

I love naan, and nigella seeds as well. I never knew they were also called kalonji though.

Thank you for the recipe - I have a bag of nigella that I purchased a while ago, and I haven t known what to make with it. Now I can bake something - my favorite thing to do in the kitchen!
