A sweet, savory and nutty bread – the Peshawari Naan. The aromas wafting through the kitchen while baking the peshawari naan are simply irresistible and so is the taste when the naan is baked and ready to be enjoyed. This month the theme for Bread Bakers was ” A touch of grape”. Stacy, who authors the gorgeous blog Food Lust People Love, was the host and this is what she said about the theme – “Make any kind of bread with grapes! They can be roasted, dried (as in raisins) candied, jellied, etc. as long as they are used in the bread or its filling or topping. Heck, you can use wine made from grapes in the dough or filling or topping, if that floats your boat! Don’t forget a little for the baker as well. ”
Honestly, I did try to see if I could bake with wine. But mostly i just ended up drinking it instead. So the other better idea was to just make the obvious bread with raisins – the peshawari naan. It goes well with curries but is also good on its own.
This was my snackitzer for the Sunday Football game, which we did not end up watching at all. The husband and the kid both got sick – One is having serious respiratory problems due to allergies and had to make a trip to the hospital and the other is on antibiotics for something she caught at the school. So to bring on some normalcy, I went ahead and made the peshawari naan. Just to have a few smiles from the tired faces. They had been excited about the project ever since I told them I would be baking it for a Game day party. Since they both were under the weather we ended up not having anyone over to watch the game. But no party doesn’t mean no special food. It was well worth the effort to make it for the two of them. To see how delicious food brought about a sense of wellness, big smiles and a cheerful chatter. The verdict was that Peshawari Naan was a great game day food with the Peshawari kadai Gosht. I resisted the urge to correct the fact that they did not watch the game.
