Jane Yee / Recipes

Naan bread is bloody delicious and this recipe is so super easy you’d have a hard time screwing it up. You just sort of chuck everything together, knead it, rest it, roll it out and cook it in fry pan.

Just like the bread rolls, I made these on Snapchat a while back and have been consistently pestered for the recipe ever since. I’ve finally peeled myself off the couch to pop this online for you in both standard and Thermomix versions – and here it is! Behold…

SUPER EASY NAAN

Ingredients (makes 4):

  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 150ml tepid water
  • 1tsp instant dried yeast (2tsp if using Edmonds Surebake)
  • 250g high grade flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2tsp of oil
  • Butter

Standard Method:

Peel and finely chop garlic

Put water and yeast into a bowl and mix well

Add bakers flour, oil, garlic and salt. Combine until the mixture comes together

Transfer dough to oiled or floured surface (or into your stand mixer with dough hook) and knead until smooth and stretchy.

Pop dough into an oiled bowl, cover and rest for 15 minutes.

Preheat pan on medium-high heat

While pan is heating divide the dough into four balls and roll each out thinly

Dry fry the naan on both sides then spread or brush with butter when cooked

Thermomix Method:

Peel garlic and chop 3 sec / speed 9

Put water and yeast into bowl and mix 5 sec / speed 3

Add flour and oil – mix 5 sec / speed 3 (10 sec if doubling recipe)

Knead dough for 4 mins / dough function (6 mins if doubling recipe)

Pop dough into an oiled bowl, cover and rest for 15 minutes.

Preheat pan on medium-high heat

While pan is heating divide the dough into four balls and roll each out thinly

Dry fry the naan on both sides then spread or brush with butter when cooked

NOTES
For spinach and cheese naan:
Roll out balls to a palm-sized disc, place a handful of chopped baby spinach and grated cheese in the centre, pinch the sides together and place seam side down before rolling naan out thinly and cooking as per above.

This recipe can easily be doubled if you have too many children or if you have friends coming for dinner
