4a8e3b13-a0a0-4d40-b499-b9dd8efbf830

I was stuck of what to do for this weeks bake, having been baking and cooking non-stop over the Christmas period I didn’t really feel like doing anything too fancy as I had been attempting to knuckle down into Uni assignments and get back into the swing of things. I ended up doing this bake after it was dark which I haven’t done for a while as I try to plan it so that I can take photos in daylight which was getting difficult but now the days are getting longer again time is on my side! I have made naan breads once before using a Paul Hollywood recipe I used my own flavourings and adapted a few recipes to create my own. I also made a prawn curry using a wonderful Indian recipe book my mum has which was delicious and I will definitely be making again along with these naan breads.

Ingredients 

  • 290g Strong white bread flour
  • 7g Fast action dried yeast
  • 120ml Milk
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 1.5 tsp of Black Onion seeds (Nigella seeds)
  • 1 tsp of Ground coriander
  • 0.5 tsp of salt
  • 30g butter
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • 1 handful of fresh coriander

Method

  1. Firstly finely chop your garlic and fresh coriander, use a garlic press if you have one. 1c8042ea-9299-4d40-a5ea-7d4b993bf941
  2. Melt the butter until fully liquid.
  3. In a large mixer with a dough hook, add your flour, salt, spices, garlic, black onion seeds, fresh coriander, honey, yeast and melted butter. dc0b651e-5485-4b3a-af70-9b6cac200c29
  4. Start mixing on a low speed and gradually add your milk you may not need all of it. Scrap down the sides of the mixer to bring the dough together. 0e6763ff-178e-420f-8f1d-53bbd87cd559
  5. Then put on a fast speed for 5 minutes until the dough is soft and stretchy. ea8f0cd1-9f2a-434c-9034-9e88c6ae8343
  6. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave to rise somewhere warm for about an hour or so.
  7. Then divide your dough into how many naan’s you would like, I made mine into 3 large. f91859d3-9656-4fd1-abb2-96ce0b5b6b81
  8. Then roll out the dough into an oblong shape – there is no art to this and shape doesn’t really matter.
  9. Place on a baking tray with teflon sheets or baking paper and leave to rise and rest for 30 minutes. 05f32060-0904-474a-9a22-8af63a8849a6
  10. You can either bake these in a large frying pan or under a grill. I have used both and they both work well just make sure if frying that you have it on a medium heat or it will cook too quickly.
  11. If cooking under the grill place the trays on the middle shelf and flip half way through, brush with some more melted butter after cooking and serve with fresh coriander.
