Easy Naan Recipe

Naans are really quite cheap and easy to make at home. I've included a vegan version for those who want a dairy-free option.
You really do need to find black onion seeds to get an authentic taste. These are normally available in the world foods section of larger supermarkets, and in Asian stores.
  • 3 cups strong white plain (bread) flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fast action dried yeast
  • 1 tsp black onion/kalonji seeds
  • 1 tbsp honey/golden syrup
  • 4 tbsp plain yogurt/dairy-free yogurt
  • 1 tbsp melted butter/dairy-free spread
  • ¾ cup cold water
Put the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix in the yogurt, honey and butter.
Gradually add the water and mix well until you have a smooth, but not sticky dough (add a little more flour or water if needed).
Cover the bowl with cling film and leave in a warm place to prove for an hour or so.
Preheat the grill to high and grease a baking tray.
Divide the dough into around 8 pieces and roll into 10cm (approx) circles.
Place 2 or 3 circles of dough onto the baking tray at a time, and cook under the grill for a few minutes on each side until puffed up and brown.
Leave to cool on a wire rack or keep warm in a low oven until you are ready to serve them.

Suitable for freezing.

Alternatives: Make in a bread maker using the dough setting. Pin It
