Buckwheat Flour Naan
Naan originated from Iran. However, different countries have their version of the bread. It’s a staple that is commonly found in Iran, middle east countries, and Indian subcontinent countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, etc. It is a super healthy recipe that is quick, easy, and fail-proof which can be cooked on a skillet. This naan is a homemade bread recipe with a healthy twist using Buckwheat flour instead of self-raising flour. You can spice it up with butter, garlic, Kasuri methi, coriander leaves, or any of your favorite toppings. Soft, puffy with some brown blisters on top just like we get in any Indian restaurant.

- 2 ½ tsp active dry yeast
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 ½ cups of buckwheat flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup of curd
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Grated garlic and fresh chopped cilantro (to garnish) (optional)
- In a large bowl, combine buckwheat flour, curd, oil, and salt. Knead the dough well.
- Meanwhile, mix warm water, baking soda, and sugar. Stir to combine and keep it aside.
- Cover it with a lid or cling wrap and keep it aside for 10-15 mins.
- Heat a skillet and grease it over medium-high heat.
- Heat up another iron skillet on medium-high flame. Make a small ball from the dough and roll it into an oval shape. Apply a little oil on top of the dough before rolling it. Oil your roller. Simply roll the dough by stretching it lengthwise and then widthwise.
- Transfer the rolled naan onto the hot skillet. Let it cook for a couple of minutes until bubbles are formed on top. Brush the naan with the prepared garlic butter.
- Remove the naan from the skillet, flip and transfer directly to the gas.
- To cook the garlic naan in the oven, preheat the oven to 500 F degrees. Arrange rolled naan on a baking tray and then bake it for 4-5 minutes or until it turns golden brown. Take the naan from the oven and apply the garlic butter. If you want, you can place the naan in the oven under the broiler to get them charred.
- Serve and enjoy!

Healthy Banana Bread
The whole wheat banana bread is just as flavorful and moist as the regular banana bread. To make it healthy you can add in some jaggery powder as a replacement for sugar. Whole wheat flour has a lot of added benefits as it’s rich in fiber, and protein. Banana bread tastes best on day 2 after the flavors have settled together. With this healthy banana bread recipe, you’re only a few simple ingredients away from the best banana bread!
- 3 medium ripe bananas (mashed)
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup of jaggery powder
- ¼ cup of packed light or dark brown sugar
- ⅓ cup of milk
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 ¾ cups of whole wheat flour (leveled)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ⅔ cup of chopped almonds or choco chip (optional)
- Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 177°C. Keeping it in the lower rack prevents the top of your bread from browning too soon. Spray a 9×5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
- You can use an electric mixer or mix everything by hand. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment on medium-high speed, beat the mashed bananas and eggs together until combined. (Or whisk by hand.) Add the jaggery powder, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium-high speed (or whisk) until combined. Set aside.
- Whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together. Pour into the wet ingredients and beat on medium speed (or by hand) until combined. Fold in the almonds or choco chip
- Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan. Bake for 60-65 minutes, making sure to cover the bread with aluminum foil halfway through to prevent the top from getting too brown. Check if the bread is done with a toothpick inserted in the center and comes out clean with only a few small moist crumbs. This may be before or after 30-40 minutes depending on your oven, so check every 5 minutes at the 35-minute mark or so.
- Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
- Cover and store banana bread at room temperature for 2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
