Potato stuffed bread (Naan shekampour)

One of the easiest and tastiest bread you ever had. Preparing the dough does not need any yeast , baking soda or baking powder. Very easy peasy. I stuffed my bread with potato and some vegetables but you can fill it with any kind of meat or herbs and vegetables. The most important point is to make a good dough and then you can go on with your favourite fillings.

Traditionally this wonderful bread is baked on a brick or stone griddle but nowadays, if you want to bake it at home, you can use a pan, as I did.  Today, I made potato stuffed bread and seriously it is just delicious naan bread.

I have loads of bread ( naan) recipes such as: pan fried naan, keema naan, sheermal bread, kelane naan bread, pitta bread, naan Barbari, onion spiral bread, naan fateer, olive bread, spicy lentil flat bread, garlic bread, Indian chickpea flat bread, country bread, paratha bread, garlic-rosemary bread, stuffed rose shaped bread, bread sticks with green olives. You can find them here in my web page.

How to make it??

In a large bowl, add flour, salt and oil. Mix together. Then slowly add water. Combine well and knead the dough for few minutes. Cover the dough and keep it for 30 minutes to rest.

Meanwhile prepare ingredients for filling. Heat the oil in a skillet, and sauté chopped onion until soft. Then add chopped green herbs, and potatoes. Season with all spices. Mix everything well and fry for 2-3 minutes and set aside.

Once dough is ready, grease your hand with oil and knead the dough again for 1-2 minutes. Now divide it into small or big portions, it depends on you.

Take a portion of dough and with a rolling pin flat the dough on a floured surface. Top it with stuffing ingredients and then lift the dough from all sides ( as you see in the photos).

Gently flatten the dough ball with rolling pin. Heat a pan, spread a little bit of oil in the pan and place the dough on the pan.

Bake each side for 3 minutes then flip over and bake other side.
