Home Made Naan Breads

Mr T is working in Scotland at the moment, so Friday  nights we celebrate his homecoming with lamb curry and naan bread. These are  easy to make, so I’m sharing the recipe with you so you can impress your friends – and wow your kids – they love watching the breads puff up like magic!

Note: I make these in my bread maker, but you can just as easily do them by hand

Ingredients:

1/2 tsp yeast (suitable  for bread makers)

250 g strong white flour

50 g wholemeal bread flour

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

15 g butter

2 tbs natural yoghurt

100 ml water

Method

Lightly whisk the yoghurt into the water, put all the dry ingredients in the bread maker and add the water  mix, followed by a knob of butter.

Use the dough setting and allow the bread maker to do it’s work.

Take the dough out of the bread maker, put it in a bowl and cover with a damp cloth or cling wrap. Leave to prove for an hour or two (Or, you can do as I do and make the dough the day before and put the dough in the fridge over night).

When you are ready to cook your breads, set the oven to its highest setting – and do the same with your grill – both need to be HOT. Put a baking tray in the oven. Break off pieces of dough, the size doesn’t matter, it’s personal taste how big or small you like your naan breads to be. 

Take the baking tray out of the oven, place the flat breads on the tray and return to the oven for about 5 minutes or until they have puffed up. Then move the tray to the grill to brown the breads and serve straight away.

You can flavour your naan breads before rolling out, just knead your choice of flavourings into the dough. In our house we like to add plenty of garlic and coriander.  Served cold, these taste great dipped into home made hummous.

  5. You’ve made it look really easy, I’ve never thought to use my breadmaker for naan breads (I rarely think to use my breadmaker to be fair!). I’ll have to give these a go.

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today
#naturelover #redadmiral #butterfly #embracingautumn #girlgardener #wildgarden Sunday loaf. I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
