Beets & Shah Jeera Naan Without Yeast

 Today's post is super colourful,delicious beets naan prepared without yeast.I havent prepared naans since a long and i was planning to do them for our yesterday's dinner as i prepared some paneer butter masala to serve along with.There were some leftover cooked beetroot chunks sitting in my fridge since a day,i cant cook them as anything so i thought of using them for making this colourful naan. I just prepared a paste simply with those leftover beets chunks and water, used that beets paste for kneading the dough.

This beets naan is simple and quite easy to prepare.To enhance the flavour of this naan i added a tablespoon of caraway seeds, slightly pounded with mortar and pestle to bring out the aroma of caraway seeds.Needless to say this naan turned out more tasty and flavourful.Check out other bloggers running this 16th edition of blogging marathon here.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet-Breakfast guest hosted by Roshni.


2cups All purpose flour
1/2cup Wheat flour
1/2cup Beets paste
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Baking soda
1cup Luke warm Milk
1tbsp Caraway Seeds
1tsp Sugar
Salt

Pound the caraway seeds coarsely...Sieve maida, baking powder, baking soda together.

 Take the flour in a bowl, pour the milk, beets paste, salt, pounded caraway seeds and sugar and knead as soft dough..Arrange the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with a towel....keep aside for 2hours in a warm place.

After 2 hours knead the dough and make out 6-7 even balls,dust the balls generously and roll the dough as thick oval shape discs..

Heat a thick bottomed tawa, apply water on one side of the naan, drop the watered side to the tawa and cook in simmer with lid closed, once they get cooked,flip the other side and cook well.

Serve hot!!!
