Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Naan and HLI – Spinach an event announcement

I absolutely love naans specially butter naans (yeah yeah who doesn’t like butter come on?) But somehow since I have come to Bangalore I have always been left wanting for more when it comes to naan. So somedays back when I saw this butter naan I decided to give it a try


I made it twice, once I rolled it a thicker a little like kulcha I would say and once like above thin and strechted like a perfect both the times the result was only yummnesss, I liked the naan version better and the hubby liked the kulcha kind of version better


Recipe – Naan (source Zesty Palette)

What I used

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • (3/4 tbsp) instant dry yeast (I use gloripan)
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • Water (About 1 cup warm water)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Butter for greasing as much as you want, go ahead don’t be shy

How I made it

  • Activate the yeast with sugar and warm water for 5 minutes.
  • Mix this with flour and salt and knead well for about 5-7 minutes till you get a smooth and stretchy dough


  • Leave it for proofing for about 3 hours or so
  • Pinch the dough and make small same sized balls. Roll it out in a oven or desired shape. Grease with butter
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 2-3 minutes, turn and bake for another 2 mins…
  • Serve hot with more butter if you want


And now to the event announcement, If you look around yourself  I can bet you won’t be able to find even one mom who is not always breaking her heads for finding new healthy lunchbox ideas, thats why I loved the idea of HLI event started by Mom Chef Kalyani.

    I just feel like tearing some naan out of my screen.. it looks so delicious. I will try to come up with a spinach recipe soon. Does spinach have to be the main ingredient though?
