Matcha Nan and Shrimp Cream Stew

Nan is the bread most commonly eaten in India and Central Asia.  With a beautiful light green hue, we further highlight the Matcha aroma of this Nan by pairing it with a light cream stew.

Serves 4.

Ingredients

    For the Matcha Nan:

    • 1 Tbsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha
    • 1 ¾ cups Flour (All Purpose or Bread)
    • 1 cup Flour (All Purpose or Cake)
    • 2 Tbsp Sugar
    • 1 tsp Salt
    • 2 oz Dry Yeast
    • 3/4 cup Lukewarm Water
    • 3 Tbsp Yogurt

    For the Shrimp Cream Stew:

    • 7 oz Shrimp
    • 1/2 Onion
    • 3.5 oz Mushrooms
    • 2 Tbsp Butter
    • 1 Tbsp Flour (All Purpose or Cake)
    • 3 Tbsp White Wine
    • 1 cup Cream
    • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

    To Make the Matcha Nan: 

    1. Sift the Matcha, flour(s), sugar, and salt into a bowl, add the yeast and lukewarm water, and mix together.
    2. Add in the yogurt and mix well.  Once it comes together, continue to mix for approximately 5 minutes.
    3. Once the dough is completely smooth, form it into a ball, place in a bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Place it in a warm place and allow to rise for about 1 hour.
    4. Once the dough has expanded to approximately twice its original size, knead it again to remove any air pockets and split it into 8 pieces.
    5. Lightly dust a work surface with flour and roll each piece of dough out with a rolling pin until it is thin.
    6. Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium heat.  Once it is hot enough, gently fry each side of the rolled dough in it.
    7. Set aside until ready to eat.

    To Make the Shrimp Cream Stew: 

    1. Devein and remove the shells of the shrimp.
    2. Slice the onion and mushrooms.
    3. Melt the butter in a frying pan and sauté the onions, mushroom, and shrimp in it.
    4. Add the flour and sauté until it starts to thicken.
    5. Add the white wine and sauté until most of the alcohol burns off.
    6. Add the cream.
    7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
