Buy some dry basil because you can add it in many other recipes too & it gives a really good flavour.
Stire it in an air tight container for months in the fridge.
Red chilli flakes
Lots of it Fresh coriander Ghee
Method to make the naans:
Once the dough has rested, make smooth dough balls.
Now flatten the dough ball & shape it into a katori.
Fill wholesome cheese & garlic filling into the naan dough ball & seal it. You can remove some extra dough if any.
Now apply dry flour & flatten it. Use a rolling pin to roll out a thick disk.
Now apply very little ghee on top. Now add the chopped garlic, oregano seasoning, red chilli flakes, fresh coriander.
Apply some water to your fingers & start pressing the naan to shape it. Remember to roll out a semi thick naan, the naan should not be too thick or too thin.
Once the naan is rolled out, stretch from one side to form the elongated naan shape.
Set a iron tava on high flame. Note that the tava should be an iron tava. The tava should be really hot.
Now apply water nicely on the back of the naan. Stick the naan on the hot tava water side down.
Cook until bubbles appear which should take half a minute. Now invert the tava & cook on direct flame while directing the tava from different angles to cook the naan well.
Once the naan is cooked perfectly, remove & serve.
For cheesy dip:
Cheese 250 grams
Milk 50 – 100 ml
To make pizza chains like cheesy dip. Set some water to boil in a vessel. Place a bowl on top to form a double boiler.
Now add in the cheese, butter & some milk. Start whisking and let the cheese melt.
You should add the milk gradually & depending upon the cheese quality & the area you live in the milk quantity would differ.
Once the cheese has melted completely & the cheesy dip has its thick consistency you can now serve it. You can store it in the fridge but the dip tends to solidify a bit.
You can run it in the microwave oven for a few seconds and you are good to go. Also, if you have a microwave oven, you can avoid the double boiler method & give 30 second heat waves and mix until you achieve the right consistency to make the dip.
Enjoy the dip, you can also flavour it as per your taste with jalapeno or herbs.
Enjoy the garlic breadstick with cheesy dip style Naan!
