Roti's made with Pressure Cooker

These Roti's are made in Pressure Cooker. They turned out so perfect like the one's at restaurant's. And more over it can be done so quickly. Here is where i took the recipe from.

1. Maida/All Purpose Flour- 1 Cup
2. Wheat Flour- 1/4 Cup
3. Curd- 2 spoons
4. Baking Powder- a pinch
5. Warm Milk- 1 Cup

Mix All Purpose flour with the Wheat Flour, Now sieve it with Baking Powder. add salt and mix well. bring the flour together in a mountain shape and dig a hole in the centre. add the curd on the hole and add the baking powder upon it. leave it for 2 minutes. Now mix the flour with a warm cup of milk. Roll the dough as we do for chapathi's in the round shape and cut it into half shape. Heat a Pressure Cooker/Kadai. Now stick the rolled dough on the wall's of the cooker. leave it for a minute and invert the cooker. and leave it for another half minute. check the naan now..if it is not cooked evenly, cook it directly on the flame.
after it is cooked, you apply butter to it.

I served the above Naan with Vada Curry and boiled potates tempered with mustard and sauted with Kasuri Methi. Both the side dishes suited well for Naan.

This leaves to Srivalli's Roti Mela...which iam managing to send her in the last minute's:)
