Keema or qeema naan is a kind of stuffed meat bread. Maybe you asked what kind of meat is in the qeema naan.



It might be minced beef or lamb. It’s absolutely super easy to prepare keema naan, t’s absolutely mouthwatering bread and it’s absolutely perfect 🙂


Ingredients for dough

  • 500 g all purpose flour
  • 100 ml yogurt
  • 100 ml warm water
  • 150 ml water
  • 7 g dried yeast
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


Ingredients for filling

  • 300 g minced meat ( beef or lamb)
  • 1 onion
  • Salt and chilli flakes to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp turmeric



First we prepare meat mixture: heat the oil in a pan, add chopped onion and sauté until soft, add minced meat and all above mentioned spices. Let to cook meat until turn into brown. Set aside.



For making dough:

In a bowl with 100 ml warm water, add sugar and yeast. Mix together and let to sit for 15 minutes until surface of water is bubbly and foam.

In a bowl with flour, add salt, yeast, yogurt, oil and water. Mix together and knead well for 2-3 minutes.

Drop oil on the dough and cover it with a towel. Place the dough in a warm corner and let the dough rise until doubled in size. (it will take 2-3 hours).


Knead the dough until all the air is expelled.

Now place the dough on a floured surface and divide it into 5 pieces.

Take a dough and roll it with rolling pin. Put some of meat mixture in the centre of dough, Pinch all corners together. And give a round shape to the dough. Using bottom of a wooden spoon make holes all over the dough. Brush top of the dough with yogurt.


Heat a non stick pan and place the dough in it, until cooked from the bottom. Flip to the other side and let it cook until golden brown in colour. Once naan baked transfer it to a plate and brush it with melted butter.




Churros are deep fried dough pastry. It is very similar to a Persian sweet that is called ‘ bamieh’. Let say they are same with small differences. Persian bamieh after frying would be soaked in the syrup but churros after frying would be coated with sugar-cinnamon.


Churros are usually deep fried but if you do not like to fry them , so why not bake them.

In my following recipe, I will share my deep frying and baking churros in the oven.


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon powder



In a pot, combine water with butter, oil, salt, sugar and vanilla extract. Bring it to a boil over high heat. Add flour. Reduce the heat to low and stir constantly until the mixture forms a ball. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.

Beat the eggs separately and then gradually add it into the dough and fold it in gently until you have a thick paste.

Heat the oil in a deep pot. Spoon the dough into a piping bag with or without a star nozzle and squeeze the dough out in strips into the hot oil. Fry the churros and turning them until golden brown. Then transfer fried churros to a paper towel to drain.

Next roll them in sugar-cinnamon and serve it with rich hot chocolate. For hot chocolate you can follow my other recipe: chocolate soup.

If you do not like deep fried churros, why not bake it in the oven.

So, Preheat the oven to 200 C. Line the tray with parchment paper. Squeeze the dough out in strips on the tray. Leaving space between each one. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Transfer cooked churros to a plate and coat them well with sugar-cinnamon and serve with hot chocolate.


Garlic bread knots

I have baked these beautiful garlic knots with my home made pizza dough. But you can get pizza dough from supermarket or just as I mentioned make your own dough as I did.



500g plain flour

7g dried yeast

1tsp salt

4 cloves of garlic, grated

handful fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped

Olive oil

In a large bowl with flour, add salt and mix it. Add yeast to 325ml lukewater. Stir until yeast dissolve. Pour it on flour and mix until you have dough. If it is sticky, add some flour. Dusting bottom of a bowl with flour or semolina flour, and place dough in the bowl.

Cover it with a towel and let to rest for 2-3 hours in room temperature until doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Then put ball pizza dough on a floured surface. Flattening dough and with a cutter, cut dough into strips.

Take one of strips roll them (wrap around and twist). Place them in a baking tray and let to bake for about 10-15 minutes.


Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix chopped parsley with grated garlic and olive oil.

Once bread is ready, immediately, transfer bread knots in a bowl and pour Olive oil mixture all over the bread. Toss together, season with salt and stir well.

Enjoy it.

نان سیردار گره دار

برای تهیه ی نان سیردار گره ای می تونید از خمیر پتیزای آماده استفاده کنید و یا خودتون در منزل خمیر رو تهیه کنیدهمونجور که من تهیه کردم.

مواد لازم

پانصد گرم آرد ساده

هفت گرم مخمر فوری

یک ق چ نمک

چهار حبه سر رنده شده

یک چهارم پیمانه جعفری خرد شده

روغن زیتون

طرز تهیه.

داخل یک‌کاسه آرد را با نمک هم بزنید. مخمر فوری را با سیصدو بیست و پنج میلی لیتر آب گرم شیر مخلوط می‌کنیم وقتی مخمر حل شد روی آرد ریخته و هم می‌زنیم تا خمیر آماده شود. اگر خمیر حالت چسبی داشت خیلی کم آرد اضافه می‌کنیم. داخل کاسه مقداری آرد ساده یا آرد سمولینا ریخته و خمیر را روی آرد قرار می‌دهیم وروی خمیرهم کمی آرد می پاشیم و سپس خمیر را با یک حوله می پوشانیم و برای دو سه ساعت در یک جای گرم قرار می‌دهیم تا حجم خمیر د و برابر شود.

وقتی خمیر آماده شدفر را روی حرارت دویست درجه ی سانتیگراد گرم می کنیم.

خمیر پینزا را روی سطح آردی گذاشته بعد خمیر را با وردنه باز می‌کنیم و با یک کارد یا کاتر خمیر را به صورت نوارهای باریک برش می دهیم( مطابق تصویر). یکی از خمیرهای نواری را دور دو انگشت می پیچیم که به صورت یک توپ در بیاد و آخر خمیر نواری رو داخل توپ قرار می دهیم(مطابق تصویر). اگر مشکل بود می‌توانید فقط خمیر ها را به صورت توپ در بیارید مثل کوفته قل قلی.

خیمر ها را داخل سینی فر چیده و می‌گذاریم برای ده پانزده دقیقه یا زمانی که روی نانها طلایی شد بپزند.

در همین حین – جعفری خرد شده را با سیر رنده شده و روغن زیتون مخلوط می کنیم.وقتی نانها آماده شدند فورن آن‌ها را به یک‌کاسه یا ظرف بزرگ منتقل می‌کنیم و روغن زیتون سیر دار را روی نانها ریخته و هم می‌زنیم تا روغن به خورد نانها رود . همینطور کمی نمک روی نانها می زنیم.
