Naan (Indian nan bread)

Product Used

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp fresh yeast
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 individual yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp ghee*/oil
  • 1/4 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 pinches salt

Recipe Instructions

Combine the yogurts and eggs in the bowl with the dough blade. Add the ghee* or the oil. Set aside. Mix the flour, sugar, yeast and 2 pinches of salt in the bowl with the dough blade. Add this mixture to the yogurt and process to form a ball. The dough should be firm and elastic. Put the dough in a large bowl and cover with a damp towel. Leave to rise for 3 hours. Preheat the grill to 410 degrees (gas mark 6-7). Lightly knead the dough again, then divide into equal pieces (one for each person). Shape each piece into a ball, then flatten into a circle 1/2-inch thick. Brush both sides of the naans with melted unsalted butter. Arrange the naans on the grill tray and bake for 5 minutes on one side until golden. Then turn them over and bake for a further 5 minutes. Wrap the naans in a tea towel to keep them hot until it is time to serve them.

Traditional naan bread is served with spicy dishes. You can also flavor it with cheese or cumin if you wish.
