Indian Naan Bread has become increasingly popular in the West. Traditionally baked in a Tandoori oven, this recipe shows you how to make your Naan Bread in a pan.
Ingredients
  • 5ml Instant yeast
  • 5ml Honey
  • 125ml Warm water
  • 45g Melted ghee (clarified butter)
  • 60ml Plain yogurt
  • Cumin seeds
  • 250g Strong white bread flour
  • 2.5ml Salt
Instructions
  1. Place the yeast in a jug and add the honey and the warm water. Stir this to combine and put it aside to activate for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add 15ml of the melted ghee to the yeast mixture along with the yogurt, and stir this until well combined.
  3. Pour the yeast mixture into the flour. Using a wooden paddle mix this until a dough comes together and it cones away from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead it for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place the dough back in the bowl, cover the bowl with cling-wrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 90 minutes.
  5. After 90 minutes, knock the dough back, knead it briefly and divide it into 6 equal portions.
  6. Roll the portions into balls and flatter them into discs of 15mm in thickness. Sprinkle the discs with cumin seeds and press these lightly into the surface.
  7. Heat a pan over medium high heat and grill the naan for 3 minutes per side until well risen and crispy browned.
  8. Remove the flat breads from the pan and serve as an accompaniment to your curry.
