Easy Naan Bread (makes 4-5)
There's a bit of a tradition of a home-made Saturday evening curry in our house. Everybody eats lots of it. I used to buy naan bread to go with the meal but once I found this recipe I've never bought them since. It's very easy to make and just taste nicer (as well ab being cheaper) that the shop-bought variety.
250g plain flour
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
140-150ml of milk
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
1. Sieve the flour, sugar and baking powder into a large bowl.
2. In a small bowl mix together the milk and oil.
3. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the liquid.
4. Draw in the flour from the sides and slowly mix the ingredients together until you have a smooth, soft dough.
5. Knead for 8-10 minutes
6. Cover the bowl with the dough inside with a tea-towel and leave in a warm place for 10-15 minutes.
7. Form the dough into four/five parts.
8. Preheat the over to 200C (include two baking sheets).
9. Roll out the dough pieces quite thinly into an oval shape.
10. Place the dough on the baking sheets and put in the over. Turn after 2-3 minutes. After another 2-3 minutes remove from the oven.
If you want to add flavours like poppy seeds, garlic or fresh coriander then this can be added just before stage 5 starts.
