Hey folks this is Lady Lynne and I just back from our summer break to Cornwall.
We had a truly amazing time and I can’t wait to bring you some of the highlights next week.
But today, as the first of two new recipes this week, I’m bringing you my really simple home made naan bread recipe.
The reason being, you’re going to need this delicious home made naan bread recipe to go with the new healthy paneer and chick pea curry recipe I’ve got for you on Thursday.
I first brought you this home made naan bread recipe way back when I started this blog combined in the lamb rogan josh and home made naan breads recipe.
This is such a good recipe not to have a single post of it’s own and an easy step by step guide. I make it every Sunday when we enjoy a home made curry!
How To Make Home Made Naan Bread Step By Step
First, start by assembling all of the home made naan bread ingredients.
Bread flour, pain flour, salt, dried yeast, no fat yogurt (I use Greek) and 100ml water.
Don’t mix the salt and yeast together. In direct contact, salt can kill the yeast.
Then, in a medium sized bowl combine the two flours, salt, yeast and no fat yogurt / water mixture together.
The salt and yeast are added seperately to the bowl. This ensures that when adding the yogurt / water mixture you don’t kill the yeast by mistake!
You can do the whole mixing process by hand, or with a stand mixer.
Mix the ingredients together to form a dough ball.
If the ingredients are too dry to form a ball add a little more warm water.
If too wet add a little more plain flour.
Once combined, place the dough ball on a floured surface and knead briefly.
1 minute kneading here will do.
Then re-shape into a dough ball. Coat in a light dusting of plain flour, place in a clean bowl and cover with clingfilm to rest for one hour.
After an hour, cut the home made naan bread dough up into 6 pieces.
Using your hands form each piece of dough into 6 equal sized balls.
Turn on a medium to high heat under a suitable non-stick frying pan / Indian flat pan Tawa / Tava.
Using a rolling pin roll out the home made naan bread dough to a circle shape.
Make the circle shape the same size as the bottom of your non-stick frying pan / Indian flat pan Tawa / Tava.
You don’t need to use any oil or butter in your pan.
Place the home made naan bread dough directly onto your hot non-stick frying pan / Indian flat pan Tawa / Tava.
Cook on each side until puffed up and lightly browned. Each side will only take 20 seconds or so depending on how hot your pan is.
Repeat steps above until all the naan breads are ready.
Lay each naan bread on top of each other, using a piece of kitchen towel between each naan to prevent them from sticking together.
Then just quickly re-heat your curry and serve!
