When something is easy and simple i am all for it. I hate recipes that are too complicated. They make people panic and one of the main reasons i write my blog is to show that cooking is fun, quick, and enjoyable.
So i was scouring the net late one night and bumped into Tuti's Scent of spice blog. This blog is innovative, easy to navigate and has wonderful recipes that i am sure you will all love. But more importantly, you are going to love the Naan recipe she shares with us. I did, and so did my husband.
I was just making the bread as a test and when i realised that it was turning into everything i was looking for i quickly started making a chicken and potato curry.
420g all purpose flour
1Tablespoon caster sugar
1Teaspoon of salt
7 g yeast ( 1 packet )
180ml warm water
1 whole egg
60 g melted butter
1 t vegetable oil
- In your mixer, combine 380g flour, sugar, salt and yeast together.
- In another bowl, mix your egg and yoghurt till combined well.
- Add the warm water to the flour and also add the egg and yoghurt mixture.
- When you see the dough starting to combine, add the melted butter.
- If the dough becomes too sticky, add a tablespoon at a time of flour from your reserve till it is no longer sticky to the touch.
- Knead the dough for about 5 minutes in kitchen aid, or 10 minutes by hand.
- Place dough in a lightly greased bowl and cover with cling film.
- Let it rise for about 1 hour or until it has double in size.
- Punch down and then shape into about 8 balls.
- Let them rise for about 10 minutes, and then roll out on a lightly floured surface and make circular shapes with a little tear drop shape at the end.
- Heat a heavy non stick pan and add a little oil and cook the Naan for about 1-2 minutes on each side. You will see the bread start to bubble.
- This is the moment you know that something has gone RIGHT!
- Serve after you have cooked both sides.
What a treat. This is just a lovely recipe and the bread was eaten faster than i made it. I will definitely make this again. Definitely.
