Homemade Naan with Patak's Dopiaza curry & Full Moon
This is my first attempt of making Naan so I searched some video on You Tube and found this Indian lady named Manjula who had great video on making Naan at home. If you are interested in her video, here is the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vow-kxTPatc
Here is me kneading the dough.
We let the dough raise and then divide them and roll out.
Put them in a oven sheet and into the oven!
The first batch was bit burned. We forgot to time and left in the oven too long. ..
But second batch came out perfectly. Look at this beautiful color!
We tried another kind of Patak product today. It was called Dopiaza Curry. It was good but not spicy at all. I would like to have some spiciness.
Making Naan was easier than I thought I will be and we really enjoyed baking them together! We are excited about trying them again. Next time maybe we will try to make garlic Naan.
By the way, did anyone see a beautiful moon on Friday and Saturday night? I don't know which day was full moon but it was so big and beautiful. What do you see on the moon? In Japan, we see rabbit on a moon. I believe here in the state, people see human's face on the moon. Isn't it funny that people see different things on moon? Since I grew up in Japan, when I see full moon, I can not help but see a rabbit on it :-)
Until I move to the U.S., I did not realize how bright the Moon can be. I was living in Tokyo when I was in Japan so I think there were too many lights around. I was living in California before I move to NY and the Moon I saw there was sometimes so bright. I remember thinking "Why does it feel bright tonight?" and realize that the light was coming from the moon. This was a surprising discovery for me. I love looking at full moon.
