Black to move
Black to move  
What should be the idea of black here? Best move for black?
HERE STOCKFISH RECOMMENDS BLACK TO PLAY NC5 BUT BN WILL MAKE DOUBLE PAWN FOR BLACK AND UPON FURTHER ANALYSIS I CONCLUDED THERE WOULD BE A LOSS FOR BLACK..PLEASE SUGGEST IDEAS FOR BLACK..

Answer
Hello,

Agreed. I would not play NC5 due to the possibility of doubled pawns and no way to slow down an E-5 push.
I would recommend playing B6 and continue a queenside build up with AR-Q8. Black has nice  threats of pushing
into the center. The goal would be to take the sting out of an impending F5.
Black's position would remain very solid with good play in the center and queenside.

I hope this helps!
