Homemade Garlic Naan Bread

I love Naan Bread. Especially Garlic and Coriander. I would never order an Indian without it. When we order a takeaway, we tend to have rice and naan and share a bit of each. The same when we make curry at home really, I’d hate to have to choose between my sides. But, if I did, the bread would probably win every time.

Easy Homemade Garlic Naan Bread makes the perfect accompaniment to any curry!

I was amazed the first time I made my Homemade Garlic Naan Bread. They are so much better than store-bought Naan bread. So light and fluffy but with a rich and fab flavour. I could quite happily eat them on their own but dipped in a creamy curry sauce, they are absolutely perfect.

I don’t think I’ve bought any since. They are much easier to make than you might imagine, absolutely gorgeous and really filling, in a way that store-bought never are.

If you want a buttery flavour, coat each side of your Homemade Garlic Naan Bread in melted butter before frying. But, it’s also fine with just a good spray of a cooking spray on each side.

This recipe makes eight Homemade Garlic Naan Breads, but one each is plenty. They do freeze really well if you wrap them or place them in sealable freezer bags. I tend to make eight at a time and freeze four for next time we make a curry.
