Naan Bread

​Who doesn't love a good curry? But what makes a good curry even better? Simple....Naan bread.

This is my go to naan bread recipe. My kids love it! Everyone loves it. ​


​Ingredients

  • 260g yoghurt (I use plain ​Greek yogurt)

  • 250g gluten free self raising flour​ (or 250g plain flour and 2 & ½ teaspoons baking powder​​)​

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp gluten free baking powder (optional)​​

  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum (optional, depends on whether the GF flour you use has xanthan gum mixed into it​​)


Instructions

  1. Add all your ingredients into a bowl and mix together. I initially just do this with a spatula and then as it starts to come together I use my hands to ensure it's all pushed into a big ball.

  2. Knead the dough briefly so it's smooth and combined (you might need a little flour if it's a bit sticky, it shouldn't be)

  3. Cut the dough into 6-8 pieces.

  4. On a lightly floured surface use a rolling pin to roll out your dough. I roll mine to just over 0.5cm thick in a sort of naan shape!

  5. Heat up a frying pan​.

  6. Carefully lift up your rolled dough and place it in the heated frying pan (you should be able to transfer easily or else use a cake lifter to lift the dough). Allow to cook on one side for a few minutes, you should start to see some puffing up.

  7. Once some golden browning has occurred, flip the naan and cook for slightly less time on the other side.​

  8. To add some extra flavour you can brush the uncooked surface with infused olive oil before flipping. ​


​IMP - wipe the pan clean with a kitchen towel to remove any burnt flour between each naan.



To make the naan a garlic naan - Brush the naan with a little garlic oil, add some chopped up fresh coriander and a little salt.
