One of my favorite things about going out for Indian food is the Naan bread. Granted, I usually eat so much of it that by the time the food comes around I want to die, but, come on! The stuff is slathered in garlic, how can you not want to eat it all?
I decided to take a stab at making my own, and lo and behold it was really easy! It requires minimal ingredients, and cooks super quickly. Most Naan recipes require time to let the dough rise, but this is a speedier version. Read on!
What You Need:
- 1 cup bread flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 2/3 cup water
- extra flour for rolling
What You Do:
- Mix the bread flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Add the water, stir and knead the bread for a few minutes.
- Once the dough is smooth, divide into four balls.
- Roll the balls out into 5-6 inch in diameter discs.
- Spray your frying pan with olive oil, and place over low heat. Place one of the discs onto the pan, cook until golden.
- Flip, cook until golden again.
- Remove, devour.
The end. If you’re in the mood for garlic naan, you can mince 2 cloves of garlic and add it to the frying pan with your cooking spray (maybe even add a tbsp of actual olive olive to the pan, in addition to the cooking spray.) Once the naan is golden on both sides, pour the remaining garlic from the pan straight onto the naan. You can NEVER get enough garlic. No such thing.
