Homemade Garlic Naan Breads

Naan bread is brilliant, isn’t it? We should eat them more. I basically only made these because I had some yoghurt left from the flatbreads. They were wonderful (especially as a midnight snack dipped in mayo!) and I’m never ever buying supermarket naan bread again. Now I just need to brave making a curry from scratch.

Instructions

  • 500g Strong white bread flour
  • 7g Yeast
  • 1 Tsp. Salt
  • 1 Tsp. Sugar
  • 5 Cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 200g Greek Yogurt
  • 100 ml Warm water
  • 20 ml Oil
  • 5 Tbsp. Butter, melted

Method

Mix the warm water and oil in a measuring jug. Then mix together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast and garlic in a large mixing bowl.

Add the water/oil and yoghurt. Mix together well with a wooden spoon. When it’s all started to come together, tip it out onto a well-floured surface.

Knead for 10 minutes, until it’s a smooth ball of dough, and springs back when you poke it. If it’s too sticky, add a little flour, too crumbly, a little water.

Next, place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, and put somewhere warm to proof (I use a plastic bag).

After an hour, the dough should have doubled in size. If not consider moving it to a warmer location and leaving for a further 30 minutes.

When the dough is ready, tip it out onto a well-floured surface and punch out the air. Then knead for a further 5 minutes.

Separate the dough into 8 equal balls and, making sure there is plenty of flour on your surface, roll out to circles, around 3mm thick. I do 4 at a time because my kitchen is tiny and I don’t have space for 8. Leave to rest for 5 minutes.

Brush with butter, and fry in a little oil for around 3 minutes each side.
