chur chur naan recipechurchur naan on tawa | amritsari chur chur naan with step by step photo and video recipe. traditional naan recipes are made just with plain flour and additional flavour of garlic as a topping. but recently there has been a lot of experiment and variation to this traditional north indian flatbread with and without stuffing. one such simple and flavoured stuffed naan recipe churchur naan recipe from the punjab cuisine.

well for many north indians this recipe of churchur naan on tawa may be familiar but for south indian it may not be a common dish. i guess the recipe might have originated from the streets of amritsar and hence the funny name of churchur in front of it. whatever it is, the taste of this bread would not disappoint you. the spiced combination of boiled and mashed potatoes with moist and creamy paneer makes it the best naan recipe. having said that, when compared with traditional naan recipe, this naan is more filling. moreover, it can be served as paratha with any choice of spicy pickle and boondi raita. my personal favourite combination is spicy punjabi pickle with this churchur naan. as a matter of fact, you can also make the same naan with different stuffing like gobi, peas and even carrot.

furthermore, i would also like to include some more tips, suggestions and variations to chur chur naan recipe. firstly, in this recipe i have used just plain flour as most of of the naan are made with maida. but to make it more healthy you can also use the combination of wheat and plain flour in a ratio of 1:1. secondly, you can make the dough and stuffing well ahead in advance and bake these bread on tawa whenever you require it. as a matter of fact, most of the street vendors and even in restaurants they prepare it this way. lastly, the major difference between paratha and this naan recipe is the flaky texture and vegetable-based filling. if you skip either one of them you may end up preparing just a paratha or roti. hence do not skip those 2 steps.
