Naan Bread Recipe

Sorry in the delay in posting this especially to Kylie who has been begging for it! Opps.

This is a recipe from a DK book I got at a Total Learning book party a few years ago. It’s the “Children’s Cookbook”.

Nann Bread:


3 tbsp warm milk

2 tsp fresh yeast

200g plain flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

vegetable oil

3 tbsp natural yoghurt

30g unslted butter (melted)

2 tsp of cummin (optional)


1. Using your finger, mix the milk and fresh yeast together in a ramekin. Leave the mixture in a warm place for 10 minutes or until it bubbles slightly.

2. Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl. Using a wooden spoon, gradually stir the yeast mixture, egg and yoghurt into the flour until you have a soft dough.

3. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 5 minutes or until it is smooth and elastic. Lightly grease a bowl with oil and then add the dough.

4. Cover the bowl with glad wrap & leave it in a warm place for about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

5. Remove the glad wrap and knock back the dough. Divide the dough into equal pieces (recipe says 4) and knead some of the cummin seeds into each piece (optional).

6. Roll each piece into a teardrop shape. Don’t be afraid to stretch the dough to get the right shape! Preheat the baking tray under a hot grill.

7. Place the nann breads on the hot baking tray and glaze both sides with melted butter. Grill each side on high for 2 minutes or until risen and golden.
