Flatbread come in many different types but Naan bread is definitely one of my favourites. It takes quite some time to make but the hard labour definitely pays off. You can pair it with different curry’s and stews but you can also use it as a pizza base!
- 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 Cup Lukewarm Water
- 1 Teaspoon Sugar
- 7g Dried Yeast
- 1 Tablespoon Yogurt
- 1 Tablespoon Ghee
- In a bowl combine lukewarm water with sugar and mix it. Add yeast and allow it to sit for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes add yogurt and allow it to rest for another 5 minutes in a warm place.
- Add salt to sifted flour and whisk it.
- Gradually add flour to the wet ingredients, mix until dough becomes too heavy to mix. Then transfer it to a well floured surface and knead the dough for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Use ghee to grease a bowl, put dough in the bowl, brush it with ghee and cover it with a clean kitchen towel. Put the dough in a warm place and allow it to rest for 2 hours.
- After 2 hours take the dough out of the bowl and knead it for 5 minutes.
- Divide dough into approximately 6 pieces and let the pieces rest for about 5 minutes.
- Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into oval or circle shape
- Heat a well seasoned cast iron skillet over high heat, carefully lay the dough in the skillet and cook until you start to see bubbles. Turn the naan bread and cook the other side until its done (approximately 1-2 minutes)
- Brush naan bread with remaining ghee.
