Naan Bread Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 6

2.5 ml/0.5 tsp dried yeast

60 ml/4 tbsp warm water

350 g/12 oz/3 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
10 ml/2 tsp baking powder

A pinch of salt
150 ml plain yoghurt

Melted butter for brushing

Method:

Mix together the yeast and warm water and leave in a warm place for 10 minutes until frothy. Mix the yeast mixture into the flour, baking powder and salt, then work in the yoghurt to make a soft dough. Knead until no longer sticky. Place in an oiled bowl, cover and leave to rise for 8 hours.


Divide the dough into six pieces and roll into ovals about 5 mm or 1/4 in thick. Place on a greased baking (cookie) sheet and brush with melted butter. Grill (broil) under a medium grill (broiler) for about 5 minutes until slightly puffy, then turn and brush the other side with butter and grill for a further 3 minutes until lightly browned.
