Indian Naan bread

Naan bread method

This naan recipe is unbelievably easy to make!

Mix all of the ingredients (except for the butter or ghee) into a large bowl. add some water and knead the mixture together using your hands. Keep adding water untill the mixture forms a soft dough.

Put the dough onto a well floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes. Put the nicely formed lump back into the bowl and put it somewhere warm for two hours.

It should now have doubled in size (lets hope!) Now remove the dough from the bowl and knead untill it goes back down to its previous size. Divide into four equal lumps.

Using a rolling pin and a well floured surface flatten each lump untill it is no more than 1/2cm thick. (You can make it into whatever shape you want, best to stick to round though)!

Place the naan onto some in foil and then put under the grill. Remove when it untill bits of it turn brown.

Brush the other side with butter or ghee and put it back for another grilling, it should start to smell delicious now. Wait untill it forms brown bits and then remove it.

TIP: Feel free to add garlic butter, cheese, or whatever you want to your naan. Enjoy!
