Peshwari Naan

8 tbs. mixture of finely chopped nuts raisins and desiccated coconut: you can vary the nuts to taste and they must be finely chopped, otherwise, the naans will burst during rolling out. When you roll out the naan, put a little filling in the centre and fold up the edges so that it is sealed inside. Roll out again, or use your fingers so that the naan is flat.

Garlic Naan

2-4 cloves of garlic Peel and slice the garlic as finely as you possibly can, or finely chop-if you use slices you will have intense bites of garlic, if you use chopped garlic the whole naan will be garlicy. You could add chopped garlic to the dough and sprinkle slices on the top.

Coriander Naan

Add roughly chopped coriander leaves to the dough and save a handful to sprinkle on top when the naan is cooked.

Paneer Nann

Cube the paneer small and fry in ghee until golden. Add to the nann when you roll it out.
