Squash filled naan bread.

There are days when only a curry will do. Yesterday was one of those days. Not only do I love a curry I also love all the accompaniments too. Vegetables, daals, poppodums, chutneys, breads. The list could go on and on. I would go on and on eating too. Creating #fattofitter friendly dishes that don’t compromise flavour but are lighter is my mission at the moment.

I have lightened the Madhur Jaffrey recipe by halving the recipe and making smaller naan. I still had a whole naan but a mini version.  An old trick but a good one! I’ve also treated myself a little like a toddler and hidden an extra vegetable within the bread. I had some spiced onion squash left over from a salad I made earlier in the week so into the dough they went. You could use up any leftover vegetables, waste not , want not.

I have a pizza stone which I find makes perfect naan too. I heat the oven to the highest possible temperature with the pizza stone in the oven from the off.

Not perfect but I pushed the dough out into teardrops shapes (ish).

The naan puff up and colour beautifully but a baking tray and grill would do almost as well.

Still some leftover for my lunch today too.

    I’ve never made my own naan breads before, I really should try them soon. Love this idea of putting the spiced squash in the bread, it makes the bread look even tastier. Thanks for sharing with #BreadySteadyGo 🙂

      Do make your own naan. They are so delicious. You could use lots of other stuffings too. I’d like to try daal filled naan next.

    I love naan bread but I’ve only made it myself once and never made a stuffed one. THis one looks really tasty.

      It is such a lovely recipe for the bread. You could add a whole variety of fillings. I’m tempted by some spiced potato or sweet potato too.
