Naan is a delicious, puffy Indian bread, made with milk and yoghurt, it is perfect for mopping up spicy curries. I love making these, and although they are easy, its best to make them just before serving as they are gorgeous hot off the grill!
3 Cups Plain flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons sugar
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
4 Tablespoons milk5 Tablespoons yoghurt
1 Tablespoon of melted butter ( also more for brushing)
poppy seeds (optional)
Sift flour and add all the dry ingredients, mix to combine. make a well in the center and add the milk, yoghurt and melted butter with 90-100mls warm water.
Knead the dough until smooth. Roll out into an oblong naan shape. On a hot non stick frying pan, cook the naan on one side and then place on a baking tray, brush the raw side with butter and ( seeds if using), grill until browned and blistered. Do this until all your naan are cooked, brush with more butter and add chopped coriander and serve hot.
