Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Hello Angela,

Here it goes..

Naan is traditionally cooked in a clay oven or “tandoor.” This recipe uses a regular home oven.
Makes 6 Naan.


Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of Plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch of baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons natural yogurt
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water
Also needed:
  • 1 teaspoon of clear butter or ghee to butter the Naan
  • 1/4 cup All Purpose flour for rolling
Method:
  1. Dissolve active dry yeast in lukewarm water and let it sit for 10 minutes or until the mixture becomes frothy.
  2. Add sugar, salt and baking soda to the flour and mix well.
  3. Add the oil and yogurt mix, this will become crumbly dough.
  4. Add the water/yeast mixture and make into soft dough.Note: after dough rise will become little softer.
  5. Knead until the dough is smooth. Cover the dough and keep in a warm place for 3-4 hours. The dough should almost be double in volume.
  6. Heat the oven to 500 degrees with pizza stone for at least thirty minutes so stone is hot. Using a pizza stone will help to give naan close to same kind of heat as clay tandoor.
  7. Next turn the oven to high broil.
  8. Knead the dough for about two to three minutes and divide the dough into six equal parts.
  9. Take each piece of dough, one at a time, and roll into 8-inch oval shape. Dust lightly with dry flour to help with the rolling.
  10. Before putting the Naan in oven, lightly wet your hands and take the rolled Naan, and flipp them between your palms and place onto your baking/pizza stone into the oven.
  11. You can place about 2 Naan on the baking/pizza stone at a time. The Naan will take about 2 to 3 minutes to cook, depending upon your oven. After the Naan is baked(Naan should be golden brown color on top).
  12. Take naan out of the oven and brush lightly with clear butter or ghee.
Tip: You can also sprinkle some fresh chopped garlic after putting the Naan in the oven for a delicious garlic naan...

Enjoy your homemade Naan....
Happy cooking.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Here's the recipe for the redcurrant cupcakes with mascarpone topping that I made for the Rappi event yesterday. I don't have a photo - if someone else took one, you can send it to me to add later:

Recipe yield: 12 cupcakes (standard-sized) or 24 mini cupcakes
Baking time: 15 minutes at 180C (in pre-heated oven), 12 minutes for the minis.

Ingredients Cupcakes:
125g margarine (I use a brand with 10% butter for more flavour)
125g sugar
2 medium-sized eggs
125g flour
1/2 packet of baking powder
250g fresh redcurrents

Ingredients Mascarpone Topping:
60g butter
150g mascarpone
80g icing sugar
1/2 vanilla pod


Cupcakes:
  • Mix margarine, sugar and eggs well. Works best if all ingredients are at room temperature.
  • Sieve flour and baking powder together and fold into mixture
  • Set aside a couple of redcurrants for each cupcake (decoration) and toss the rest in a sprinkling of flour before adding them to the mixture. This will stop the fruit sinking to the bottom of the cupcakes.
  • Spoon the cupcake mixture into the baking cases (which should already be in the baking tray) - approx. 2 tbsp per case.
  • Baking time: approx. 15 minutes at 180C in pre-heated oven; 12 mins for mini cupcakes.
  • Turn onto cooling rack as soon as they are done and leave to cool completely.

Mascarpone Topping:
  • Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod and add to the soft butter.
  • Cream the butter until light, fluffy and smooth.
  • Add the mascarpone and mix to cream. Do not overwork the mascarpone mixture, otherwise it will separate.
  • Sieve the icing sugar of the creamed mascapone and gently fold it in.

Garnish each cupcake with a dollop of the mascarpone, sprinkle with red sparkling sugar (optional) and place a couple of redcurrents on top.

Keep cool before serving.

Hi, I wanted to know, what is the difference between Roti and Chappati, I'm form South Africa, and the flat bread me make is called Roti, we add a small portion of butter to the flour, and mix with boiling water. As far as I know Chappati doesnt have butter in the dough.

What a wonderful looking cake.
I'd want to put it in a glass case and admire it, rather than letting a bunch of little tearaways eat it

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

As far as i know Roti and chappati are the same, the name differes for different regions in India..

In south they call it as chappati , in North they call it Roti or phulkas.... The preparations and the method are the same....

Some they cook it directly on flame and grease butter later, some they apply oil while cooking...

Good to know, I have a friend from South India, and she had never heard of the word Roti before!
So I was puzzled. Over the generations, our 'Indian' cooking has merged cultures from North to South India!
thanks!

Thanks, I'm like a little elf, I only decorate after 10pm!
The 3D Bear cake was almost a disaster, because I decorated it in the afternoon in August - never again!
I'm looking forward to making the Barbie Doll cake, for my daughter end of August!

All the kids (and adults) loved it and it seemed to encourage them to go for cheese instead of crisps. The cake was a huge hit too - especially the Toblerone spikes. It was supposed to be red but the food colouring made my fondant pink I rescued it with butter cream and chocolate shavings

All time favourite and a popular Indian snack.
