Chur Chur Naan on Tawa

 Chur Chur Naan On Tawa 

Indian breads prove to be an exquisite component of Indian cuisine. A true Indian meal feels incomplete in their absence while also managing to be a complete meal in themselves.What's even more appealing about these breads are the range of variety they offer - from dosas that make up for a delicious breakfast to heavy Naan's that make up the pride of Punjab. While International breads like pizza and focaccia bread offer a decent amount of range India's range in bread remains unbeatable with breads from South, North, east and West contributing to this collection brings in different flavours and stories. Today's recipe is one such naan - Chur Chur Naan and is a mix of all things rich and heavy.

I usually share recipes that are healthy and simple to make. While the process isn't complicated, It does lean more towards unhealthy then healthy but its delicious taste makes it easier for us to make an exception for our otherwise healthy eating habits.This recipe is usually made with the help of an oven or a tandoor which isn't usually readily available in everyone's home. So we would attempt to make church Chur Naan on a tawa that is easily available and doesn't prove to be much of a hassle. This recipe, though fulfilling in itself, can be served with rich Amritsati Whole and raita. I hope this recipe would remind you of the flavours Punjab offers and would act as a substitute for that craving of travelling that you feel during the pandemic.
