Simple, tasty fresh naan bread - Plain, Garlic or Coriander.. naans are a perfect accompaniment to any delicious curry.
Make 6 medium sized naans
Prep Time: 20 mins + Leave dough to rise for 60mins
Cooking Time: 20 mins
Equipment - Rolling pin, dry clean surface
Plain Flour to dust
Olive oil or Butter & choice of topping (dry coriander, garlic or parsley)
300g Plain Flour
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Instant Dry Yeast
3 tbsp Plain Yoghurt
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
150ml Warm Water
Dry Ingredients - Place all dry ingredients, (flour, sugar, salt, yeast) into a bowl and mix
Wet Ingredients - Pour all wet ingredients, (yoghurt, olive oil, water) into a bowl and mix well
Combine - slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and blend together with a fork.
This will start to form a stick dough, once you have combined all the mixture together if it is too sticky then gradually add more flour.
The end result should be a slightly sticky smooth dough.
Cover the bowl with a tea cloth and leave to rise for about an hour.
Making the Naans
I use butter, it gives the naans a nice rich taste, Put some butter into a small ramekin and allow to soften.
Add your choice of topping to the butter (dry/fresh coriander leaves, chopped garlic or fresh parsley).
Place a large non-stick pan on medium heat
Divide the naan mixture into 6 equal balls.
Using flour lightly dust each ball and flatten, roll out to a medium sized naan, should be about 3mm thick. Dust of excess flour.
Place onto the pan and allow to cook for about 30secs, flip the naan over, using a brush spread lightly with butter mixture all over, flip the naan again and allow to cook until the naan is cooked with areas of golden brown.
Brush the other side with the butter mixture and turn again.
Best served hot... Enjoy your naans with any of our delicious curries.
