Updated: Jan 25
The first time I had this naan was at my aunt's house in Canada, and, let me tell you, I was so impressed with them, I had to have the recipe! I'm glad I learnt how to make these naan, as they go so well with many dishes and they are so easy to make!
You can switch up the flavours by adding different ingredients and toppings and they'll be just amazing! So let me show you how they're made!
Homemade Naan Recipe Cooking Time: 30 Minutes (Approx)
Resting Time 1-3 Hours
Makes 15-16 Naan (depending on size)
500g (3 1/2 Cups) All Purpose (Plain) Flour
2 tsp (7g) Yeast
1/2 tspn Salt
1/2 tspn Sugar
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder (optional)
1/2 tsp Kalonji (Onion Seeds) (optional )
3 Tbspn Plain, Greek or Vegan Yoghurt
1 tsp Oil
250ml (1 Cup+) Lukewarm water to bind
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Then add the oil and mix it in.
Add the yoghurt and mix it in.
Add the water and bind the dough so that it is quite soft and knead for about a minute to make it smooth.
Cover the outside of the dough with a little oil. Then cover the bowl with cling film or a damp cloth and let the dough rest in a warm place until it is doubled in size. If you need to let it rest for a longer period, place it in on your counter.
Once the dough has doubled, punch it down and make your dough balls. The balls should be slightly bigger than roti balls or about the size of a golf ball.
Using some plain flour to dust the dough balls,,roll out each ball into a circle or oval to about 4 mm thick.
For garlic, coriander, chilli naan, just add the toppings as shown in my video.
If you want larger naan, just make your dough balls bigger!
Then heat your tawa on a medium-high heat. Once it’s heated, place one or two naan on there.
When you see bubbles forming, flip the naan over.
When the underside has spots that are brown (not tan) then flip the naan over onto the cooking flame and let it rise on the flame.
Charr the naan as much as you like.
Then remove it to a plate and wrap it in a tea cloth.
Top the naan with butter or ghee if you wish. Enjoy!
