HOMEMADE NAAN

So I got inspired by my curry chicken to make some nice sides, naan just seemed like the most delicious option, and its egg free if you’re looking for that option. Just a few simple ingredients and time to let it sit! Try it!

 

What You’ll Need:

Method:

  1. In a bowl, combine the yeast, honey and 125 ml of warm water, set aside for 5 mins or until it starts to bubble
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
  3. Combine the flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a large bowl and make a well in the middle.
  4. Pour in 1 tablespoon of melted butter, yogurt and yeast mixture and beat the wet ingredients together with a fork. Gradually incorporating the flour from the sides until it starts to form a dough. It should be soft and sticky, add a splash more water.
  5. On a lightly floured surface knead the dough for 5 mins by hand until smooth. Place into lightly floured bowl and cover with clean towel for 1.5 hours (until double in size) keep this bowl in a warm place this will encourage thing to active more quickly. So 1 hour and 15 mins might do the trick.
  6. Once risen, divide into 6 balls and roll out with rolling pin in oval shapes about 1 1/2 cm thick.
  7. Heat your non stick fry pan over high heat.
  8. Your butter that is set aside, add chunks of garlic so that the butter is infused.
  9. Take your naan in your hand and baste with your garlic infused butter, both sides.
  10. Cook in the fry pan, wait until the bubbles occur and then flip to the other side. 5 mins in total time.
  11. Brush with butter and keep warm. Garnish with fresh coriander.
