Indian breads?

Hello, I have been looking on the Forum for Indian food shops in Zurich
I have found,

Aggarwal Indian Food
Langstr. 62

Asiatische Lebensmittel
Birmensdorferstrasse 94
8003 Zürich
Switzerland

and I think I was told about one in Josefstrasse Zürich?

I am having some people over for dinner tomorrow and Id really like to get some indian breads (I have tried to make them myself bit the Roti was terrrible!) would any of these store be likely to sell fresh breads??

I just thought Id ask in case one is better than the other, Im also after fresh curry leaves and Toovar Dahl...

Many thanks for any info

FYI, the Aggarwal on Langstrasse is now closed. The other Aggarwal, 2 minutes away at Kernstrasse 27 (which is the corner of Kernstrasse and Anwandstrasse) is still open.

To be honest, I don't recall whether they sell breads or not. But they definitely sell fresh curry leaves and daal.

Re: Indian breads?

I know you said you have tried to make roti- and it wasn't a success. But if you ever find the time, try again, it is so easy. We've recently bought a pizza stone, and it is brilliant for making naans.

www.manjulaskitchen.com

she has 22 recipes for indian bread and several for rooti. And btw lots of gluten free recipes for those who have to watch out for gluten.

My mil's rooti was very fatty but delish. Roll the dough thinly, brush with melted butter, double coil (first like a sausage, then like a snail) roll again, brush with melted butter, double coil and roll again X 5, then fry and crush slightly with hand. Easy peasy.

Re: Indian breads?

Hi, you can find packed rotis or frozen breads in Barkat which only require heating. If you want to make a naan at home all you need is an oven and the following recipe. The best thing about naan is that the shape does not matter - round, oval, square, or any odd shape depending on your dough rolling ability

Flour 4-5 cups depending on the number of people - this will make 12 mid sized naans. The Coop Backmehl will do. A pinch of baking powder will help.
Yogurt - Natural - 1 to 2 cups - this is what you will mainly use for kneading
Milk - 1/4 cup
Olive Oil - 4-5 table spoons
Pinch of salt
Pinch of sugar
Garlic paste or finely chopped garlic (if you enjoy garlic naan) or fresh green or red chilis

Knead all the ingredients well. The dough will be slightly wet (kind of like pizza dough). Cover with a wet cloth and let this rest for between 1 - 3 hours. If you are in a hurry 1 is fine but better to have it atelast for 2. Once you take it out just knead lightly again and then divide the dough into equal portions and using your palms to shape them as small table tennis balls. Apply / Dust a little dry flour to this covering all the sides and roll. Apply more flour if the dough sticks to the pin. You can spread chopped garlic, green or red chillies for added flavor.
Heat your oven to 275 degrees (highest in my oven). Place a baking sheet on the baking tray and keep naans on it. When the oven is hot place the baking tray. The naans may puff up and are ready to take out when brown spots appear on the top. After taking them out brush melted butter on top.

Hope you enjoy the meal. Alternatively - happy to help with the dough and rolling if you can pick up from my place in Zurich .

Re: Indian breads?

I went to Art OF Food this morning in Oerlikon (Franklinstrasse 4, 8050 Zürich)

I got everything I needed and more, they were very helpful and pleasant, I think Pataks will no longer be in my cupboards!

Re: Indian breads?

yes I was happy with the prices, Dal (various types) were 1.50-2chf for 500g
I bought Roti pack of 10 - 4.50chf, Taramind paste 2.20 -200g, massive bag of Kasmiri chilli 1chf the most expensive thing I bought as Mace at 4.50chf which I thought was expensive considering the other spices.
I had a list and the gentleman helped me find everything, i can't imagine what they dont have!
