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.
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)
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.
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)
Cut the dough into 6-8 pieces.
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!
Heat up a frying pan.
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.
Once some golden browning has occurred, flip the naan and cook for slightly less time on the other side.
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.
