Naan Bread Recipe


Food is important, we all know that. And eating what we make is more important. For more than eighty percent of us, cooking is a passion and we invest in numerous cookery books. I am always poring over recipes!

Yesterday, I decided to show off my naan bread that I made myself, on Facebook, and was astounded to receive so many messages! So, I decided to share the recipe via a blog. Here it is guys, enjoy!

naan2Ingredients:

4.5 cups strong bread flour

1 packet dried yeast (7 grams)

1 cup warm, tepid water

milk (optional)

Salt – to taste, but usually 2 tsp

1/4 cup sugar

1 clove minced garlic

1 cup Fresh or frozen coriander

1 tbsp olive oil

Recipe

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in water, and leave for ten minutes to ferment. This will make the yeast ‘live’, so aiding the dough to rise .

In another bowl, add  flour, sugar, salt, garlic, coriander, olive oil, and mix together. Add the water and yeast, and mix.

At this stage, you can add more water if needed, or add milk. Knead the dough for ten minutes, until is soft and round. It must not be sticky.

Later a thin layer of olive oil, and stick it in clingfilm. Then, leave it to rise in a warm place (near the boiler is usually a great place!) to double in size.

Once risen, roll the dough out, and then cook evenly on both sides on a hot pan, or you can put the flat dough under the grill, which brings better results. It still amazes me to watch it literally rising! naan 1

You can leave it plain, or add butter on it, once cooked.

So there you have it, your perfect naan! You can eat it with any curry, or spiced vegetables. Go on, try it!

I welcome any comments or feedback on this post.
