Pudina Cheese Naan Recipe | Pudina Recipes India

By Rutuja Bhagwat - May 15, 2019


What's that one vegetable that reminds you of an extremely delicious dish? When your mom brings that vegetable home and it instantly reminds you of that particular dish. And even if your mom plans to make some other recipe out of it, you still insist her to make that dish! Well, pudina/mint is that vegetable that reminds me of the Pudina Cheese Naan and though it's a long process to make it, I still insist my mom on making them. Pudina Cheese Naan is one of the yummiest flatbreads I have ever eaten and I honestly can't get enough of it. 

I agree that any sort of naan requires some time to make and it is not as easy as making wheat rotis, however, the efforts are worth when you take a bite of the Pudina Cheese Naan and the cheese with a refreshing mint taste melts in your mouth. I can't praise this recipe enough. 



My mom had watched this recipe on a Marathi cooking show and I'm glad she didn't just watch but actually made a recipe. My brother and I are always happy when she says she's making Pudina Cheese Naan. You can check out all recipes I have ever shared on the blog, so whether it is desserts, main course, or appetizers. 

PUDINA CHEESE NAAN RECIPE

Preparation time: 2 hours + 15 minutes
Cooking time: 7 minutes for 1 naan 
Veg/Non-Veg: Veg


INGREDIENTS FOR MAKING PUDINA CHEESE NAAN

FOR DOUGH
1 cup curd
500 gm all purpose flour (maida)
Salt for taste
Oil
Water

FOR STUFFING
3 cups mint leaves, roughly chopped
1.5 cups coriander leaves, roughly chopped
1 green chilli, roughly chopped
1 onion, roughly chopped
4 cheese cubes, grated
Salt for taste



HOW TO MAKE PUDINA CHEESE NAAN

1. Make a dough using maida, curd as per your wish, salt, water, and oil. The dough should not retain much water yet should be easy to flatten. Keep the dough aside for a minimum of 2 hours.



2. For preparing the stuffing, roughly chop mint leaves, coriander leaves, 1 onion, and 1 green chilli. You can increase or decrease the quantity of the ingredients as per your liking.
3. Take a grinder, and make a paste out of mint leaves, coriander leaves, salt, onion, and green chilli. 
4. Grate cheese. Again, the quantity of cheese depends on how cheesy you want your naans. 

5. Now for making naan, flatten a ball of dough and make a round, roti like shape. Keep it aside. (You can make any shape of your choice however, since you require two sheets of dough to make one naan, make sure both the shapes are equal.)
6. Take another ball of dough and flatten it to make another round sheet of equal size.



7. Spread the mint-coriander paste on the sheet, leaving about 0.5 to 1 cm of the sides. 
8. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the paste. 
9. Carefully place another sheet of dough on it. Lightly press the sides to seal both the sheets together. 
10. On a pan, put some butter. Roast the naan on both the sides and serve hot with tomato ketchup. 

TIP: If the mint-coriander paste finishes before the dough then you can add cheese, oregano, and chilli flakes as stuffing instead. The naan tastes heavenly!
