Foods that are light and nutritious are ideal during Ramadan. Breads, soups, fresh fruits and vegetables are the perfect way to begin and end the daily fast. Dates are no doubt important to break up the fast with!
Here I am gonna start by the Naan bread recipe, delicious during this whole month!
Naan is a flatbread found in Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and other surrounding countries. Naan is served for dipping or stuffed with a variety of meats and vegetables.
Topping can also be placed on top of the bread.
Naan is like pita or focaccia bread, but softer. You can freeze it for up to 30 days.
4 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (you can use the sea salt or iodized salt)
1/2 cup chopped coriander
2 Tbsp yeast
2/3 cups of milk (you can use the low-fat milk)
2/3 cups of plain yogurt (you can use the low-fat yogurt)
2 Tbsp of ghee (butter used in Indian cooking) (you can use the low-fat butter or the light cooking spray)
1 beaten egg
4 Tbsp of warm milk (you can use the low-fat milk)
2 Tbsp of sugar (you can use sweeteners)
preparation: Watch it here! 🙂
One piece of original Naan has 280 calories.
By using low-fat versions of milk, yogurt, butter or light cooking spary and sweeteners, you end up getting a Naan piece of 170 calories!
Naan can be topped with low-fat cheese, labne or even vegetables for a better taste, and can be a good option for souhour! 😀
