I can’t tell you how many times I have tried to make naan…honestly, it pains me to think about it! How? Why? What?? UGH!! It doesn’t matter…I am over you naan!! But, the success that I had making tortillas, has made me a little stubborn and cocky so I thought I would try one last time for something similar to naan, but a little more forgiving.
This is it! Not only is it easy, it is CRAZY good! When I made it last week, I had a very hard time not cowing (yes, not chowing) down the entire stack before the curry was served! I did save enough to sop up every last bit of the burmese chicken booyah, and it was soooo good! Anyway, I would imagine this flatbread would work in just about every situation requiring a side bread or even when serving sandwiches. I can even see making yummy breakfast burritos with this savory bread! Anyway, have fun with it, be creative, and ENJOY!
- 2 c yellow corn flour
- 1/2 c AP flour
- 1 t salt
- 4 1/4″ pieces of fresh ginger
- 2 jalapenos
- 1/2 c red onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 c cilantro, finely chopped
- 1-1 1/4 c warm water
- 1 T butter, melted
- PAM cooking spray, butter flavored
In a medium bowl, combine the flours and salt. Chop the ginger and jalapeno in the food processor until finely chopped, but not pureed. Add to the flour mix along with the onion and cilantro.
Drizzle the warm water over the flour mix 1 T at a time stirring as you go until the mix forms a nice ball. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead until soft (about 1-2 minutes).
Divide the dough into 9 balls. Cover the balls with a damp towel and let rest until you are ready to cook them.
Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium/low and coat with PAM cooking spray.
Press out the balls into flat circles about the size of a small tortilla. Carefully lift them to avoid tearing, place them one at a time in the skillet and cook until slightly browned on both sides. Using a butter brush add a light brush of the melted butter to each piece. Continue until all are cooked to your liking. Serve warm and enjoy!
