Bullet naan. Give your favorite flatbread a fiery boost with the addition of jalapeños and coriander leaves. Recreate the perfectly soft and pillowy naan at home to serve with your favorite curry. Yummo!
Soft and pillowy with crispy texture on top – these are the qualities that make an ideal naan. Do you agree? Although this classic is not so popular in India, it’s a restaurant favorite outside the country. So, whenever I’ve free time, I hone my kneading skills to make the perfect homemade naan.
And here’s the latest addition to my ever-growing list of naan recipes – bullet naan. A fiery version of naan topped with plenty of jalapeños and coriander (cilantro) leaves. Beware, this flatbread is not for the faint-hearted.
Bullet naan ingredients
I like to start with my favorite butter naan recipe and add the unique toppings to create this fiery naan. First, get a large bowl and gather all the ingredients for the dough. You’ll only need a few basic pantry ingredients like flour, yeast, butter, yogurt and milk. Make sure you add in warm milk to activate yeast.
Mix everything together to form a very sticky dough. Place the bowl in a warm spot in your kitchen and wait for it to double in size.
Once risen, you’ll need to knead the dough, form a little ball and flatten it into an oval or round shape. Now comes the unique part of making this bullet naan. Top with plenty of jalapeños and coriander (cilantro) leaves.
To add to the aesthetic appeal of these flatbreads, I also sprinkled some black and white sesame seeds. However, it’s totally optional.
Let’s cook the perfect naan
The key to creating the perfect naan is, obviously, patience and practice. I used my grill pan to create those beautiful marks on one side and crispy brown bits on the other side. Perfect!
