Good recipe. I made another batch the morning after and I added wild flower honey to the dough. It tasted even better and it worked out well for breakfast. I'm not sure how much honey I added. I guess I could say I added enough until I could smell the honey in the dough.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the butter, milk, sugar and salad oil until the butter has melted and the milk is tepid.
  2. Put the other ingredients together in a bowl and make a soft dough, pouring in the milk mixture to keep the dough soft.
  3. Knead for 15- 20 minutes.
  4. Cover the bowl loosely with a cloth and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  5. Split the dough into as many portions as you want and roll out into rounds and place on a floured tray near the cooker and keep covered.
  6. Heat a heavy-based frying pan over moderately high heat.
  7. Brush the pan with melted butter and toss the naan into the pan and let it fry for 2 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile brush the top with more melted butter.
  9. Turn the naan bread over and cook for a further 1 1/2 minutes.
  10. Brush the cooked side with more butter.
  11. When cooked place in tin foil to keep warm.
  12. Keep in tin foil if you wish to freeze them; place in a moderate oven to heat through.
  13. Cooking time of 4 minutes is for each naan bread, not total cooking time.
