Madhur Jaffrey's Naan Bread

Madhur Jaffrey's Naan Bread created by Charles M.

This is the most amazing naan bread that I have ever tasted. I can't believe how much better this tastes than takeaway naan. It is incredibly easy to make too.

ingredients

directions

  • Put the milk in a bowl. Add 1tsp of sugar and the yeast. Stir to mix. Set aside for 15-20 minutes or until the yeast has dissolved and the mixture is frothy.
  • Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl. Add the remaining 1tsp sugar, the yeast mixture, 2tblsp vegetable oil and yogurt and egg. Mix to form a ball of dough.
  • Knead for 10 minutes until smooth and satiny (I did this in a stand mixer). Form into a ball. Pour 1/4tsp oil into a large bowl and roll the ball of dough in it. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and set aside for 1 hour until doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to it's hottest temperature. Put your heaviest baking tray to heat in the oven. Preheat your grill.
  • Punch down the dough and knead again. Divide into six equal balls. Keep covered when not working with the balls of dough. Roll the ball of dough into a tear-shaped naan, about 25cm long and 13cm wide at it's widest point.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and slap a naan on it. Put in the oven for 3 minutes, it will puff up. Now place the tray under the grill for about 30 seconds to brown slightly (I didn't bother with this as my naan browned in the oven). Wrap the naans in a tea towel or foil. Make all the naans this way. Serve hot.
  • I kept them warm wrapped in foil in a turned off warm oven, you can reheat them in the microwave for 40 seconds or so.

    Fantastic, I used a bread maker to make the dough and did the rest by hand. Super delicious and my guests were impressed!

    I've made this three times now and it is definitely the best recipe yet. I cook mine dusted with flour on a very hot dry BBQ plate with the hood down.

    Today I had no yogurt so I mixed some lemon juice with milk and let it sit for a few minutes, it worked a treat. I just dropped the milk for the yeast and sugar to 100 ml so the mixture wouldn't be to wet.

    We love this bread and I have made it for several years. The only thing I do different is add a bit more salt and I cook it on a Himalayan Salt Block. Just made another batch today in lieu of buns for our burgers and brats. YUM!!!
