Naan Bread

The inspiration for this weeks new recipe was a forgotten cheat item on the shopping list. I was making my Chicken Korma for friends on Sunday Night and forgot to buy any Naan Bread or Poppadoms to accompany the meal! So to Google I went to see if I had the ingredients at home to make some myself. Luckily I did and with the addition of my own flavouring here is my recipe for Naan Bread;

Ingredients

  • 250g of Flour
  • 2tsp of Sugar
  • 1tsp of Salt
  • 1/2tsp of Baking Powder
  • 130ml of Milk
  • 2tbsp of Vegetable Oil
  • Seeds from 6 Cardamom Pods

Method

  1. Sieve the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cardamom seeds into a bowl
  2. In a separate jug mix the milk and oil together
  3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and gradually pour in the milk and oil whilst working together with your fingers
  4. Bring all of the flour into the wet ingredients from the outside of the bowl and work until the mix forms a dough and roll into a ball
  5. Oil a clean bowl and place the dough in it
  6. Cover with cling film and put somewhere warm to rest for 15 minutes
  7. Preheat your grill to a medium heat
  8. Once the dough has rested divide into 4 equal parts
  9. Roll out each piece thinly into your desired shape
  10. Place onto a baking tray and grill for 3 minutes either side until the bread starts to brown
  11. Serve warm

I was so pleased that not only was this recipe really simple but they actually tasted like proper Naan Bread. Easily impressed maybe but learning to cook new things and expand my own recipe book still excites me! I must say that my decision to add some Cardamom seeds, because I had them in the cupboard, was a delicious addition and added to the authentic taste! Now I have this recipe I certainly will not be buying pre-made ones again.

What is your favourite pre-made replacement recipe?
