Warm, chewy naan is the best way to scoop up a generous amount of comforting curry. Some naan recipes need yeast and require some thinking ahead to prepare, but this recipe can be made on the spot and produces an amazingly chewy, delicious bread.

Directions

Click:

  1. To a small bowl, add the oil, garlic, parsley, and salt, and whisk. Set aside.
  2. To a large bowl, combine the naan ingredients and mix until just combined.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and knead a few times, until the dough is smooth. If the dough keeps sticking to your hands or the surface, simply sprinkle over some more flour.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 and roll out each piece into a rough oval shape, about 2 mm thick. Continue to add flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  5. Preheat a large pan on medium-high heat. Lightly brush one side of the naan with the herb and garlic oil, and transfer the oiled side down onto the pan to toast.
  6. Grill on each side for about a minute, or until it’s golden and bubbly. If you'd like, you can add a bit more herb and garlic oil on the top of the naan before giving it a flip to cook on the other side.
  7. Repeat with each naan, and enjoy!

Notes

  • * Nutrition tip: aim to use a plant-based yogurt/milk that is fortified with calcium.
  • Variations: try a cumin-spiced version by kneading ½ tsp of toasted cumin seeds into the dough.
