38B3C8CD-0FF3-4308-B321-4B1D6D3C0C70-9C8

INGREDIENTS:

For 4-6 servings

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour

  • 1 cup Yogurt

  • 1 tbsp baking powder 

  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda

  • 1 teaspoon Salt

Garlic Butter (to brush on the Naan):

  • 4 cloves garlic minces

  • 1tbsp melted vegan butter or oil

  • sprinkle of salt 

  • 2-3 tbsp finely chopped coriander

DIRECTIONS:
 

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine well. Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and then add your yoghurt. 
     

  2. Begin to mix the yoghurt and dry ingredients together using your fingertips. Gradually start to bring the two together and make a ball.
     

  3. Once the dough roughly comes together in the bowl, lightly flour your work surface and turn the dough out onto it. Knead the dough for 7-10 minutes by hand, adding more flour where necessary to stop the dough from sticking to the bench top.
     

  4. Once the dough is smooth, place it in an oiled bowl and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Let rest for at least 30 minutes (note: I like to leave mine for about an hour. 
     

  5. Meanwhile, place your minced garlic and finely chopped coriander in a small bowl and mix until well combined. 
     

  6. Once your dough has rested, take it out of the bowl and cut it into 6 pieces and roll each piece into a small ball. Take one ball (leaving the other balls in the bowl covered - to stop them from drying out) and using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 0.5cm thickness without applying too much force. 
     

  7. Once the naan is the desired shape brush one side with the garlic/coriander mixture and heat a pan on a medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot place the naan bread down it in and cook for 1-2 minutes each side. Flip once the naan starts to create air bubbles and is slightly charring. 
     

  8. Once the naan is done I like to brush with some melted butter and sprinkle some sea salt!
