Naan is a round flatbread made with white flour and is a staple accompaniment to hot meals in central and southern Asia.
Contents

Recipe Ingredients:

To make approximately 4 large naan breads:

  • 3 cups (450g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (240ml) yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) water

 

 

Directions:
  • Knead the dough by combining all the ingredients and sufficient water (this will be approximately 3/4 cup but some judgment is required).
  • Wrap the dough in a damp muslin cloth and leave it to rise for 2-3 hours.
  • Divide the dough into small balls.
  • Roll out the balls in oblong or round shape with a rolling pin or by slapping and stretching with your hands.
  • Smear the surface with water and bake in a tandoor or preheated oven (as hot as your oven will go).
  • The naans should puff up a little, and be ready to remove from the oven in 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Brush the naan with butter. Serve hot.

To add an extra crispy finish, pop the baked naans under a preheated grill for 30 seconds before brushing with butter and serving.

To add extra flavor, consider adding finely chopped garlic and coriander to the butter you brush over your cooked naan breads. Then return them to the oven (or place under a grill) for a short time to cook the garlic.
