Naan Bread

Perfect as a side for any Indian inspired meal, used as a sandwich wrap, or even eaten plain, these naan breads are a breeze to make!

I had purchased my first naan bread frozen from Trader Joe’s. It was smeared in garlic butter and only required heating it up or toasting it before serving. It was so good!

I had read somewhere that they sometimes stuff these with Laughing Cow cheeses so since I had it in the refrigerator, I ate some with cheese and some plain. Both were so good I couldn’t stop eating it!

I love making breads and baking in general so I thought it was time I make my own naan. I found several recipes and tried a couple of it.

Here is a recipe that uses the Thermomix to make the naan with hardly any effort on your part. Don’t worry, there is instruction on how to make it without the Thermomix right below!

Hope you’ll enjoy it!

Look at the heart shaped char on the bread!

Ingredients:

  • 450 grams unbleached all purpose flour 
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons dried yeast 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 tablespoons sugar 
  • 30 grams Olive oil or Canola oil
  • 190 grams warm water 
  • 90 grams Greek yogurt
  • Ghee or garlic butter to brush on bread
  • Cheese, optional

Procedure:

  1. Place all ingredients except ghee, (or garlic butter) and cheese into Thermomix bowl and mix for 6 seconds on speed 5.

  2. Set to Knead for 2 1/2 minutes.

  3. Leave dough in the bowl, with the measuring cup in place, at room temperature for at least 1 hour. 

  4. Roll dough into sausage shape and divide into 6 even portions.  Roll each portion into oval shape.

  5. Place dough onto a hot, ungreased grill or fry pan. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side then flip to cook the other side.

  6. Brush with ghee or garlic flavored butter. Serve plain or stuff with cheese.

* To make without the Thermomix:

Place all ingredients (except ghee, or garlic butter, and cheese) in a mixing bowl and mix until it comes together. Turn dough onto a floured board and knead 5-10 minutes until smooth. Return to the mixing bowl. Cover with plastic warp and let rest at least an hour. Continue with procedure #4 to #6.
