Naan Bread

Does anyone have a recipe for Naan bread they want to share. Looking it up on the Internet, I can find recipes that bake it in the oven and some that cook it in a skillet on the stove. I also had someone suggest using a pie tin turned upside down over the burner. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks, Robyn

Re: Naan Bread

Recipes? I got recipes. Just pick which one seems easiest for you. Naan is traditionally cooked pasted to the side of a tandoori oven, whilst Roti is cooked on a tawa, or flat griddle pan. Naan is leavened, roti isn't.

The "Curry of a Life" blog is from an American girl married to a Punjabi boy, and she relates Indo recipes from a Western perspective. It's a good resource. A Curry of A Life

pirate Re: Naan Bread

You can cook them on a skillet just fine.. heavier the base the better..
I use 4 cups plain flour, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 mug warm milk and water.. plus more warm water standing by if needed for better texture..
Sift everything dry into a bowl... stir in the wet stuff and mix in.. knead well.. add water or a dash more flour to get a nice bouncyish non sticky texture that will clean the bowl as you wipe the mass round it..
Cover with a damp cloth and leave somewhere warm to prove for a couple of hours... then divide into four portions.. roll out gently to about pan size... chuck onto a smoking skillet wait till it starts to bubble then flip.. wipe a knob of butter over the cooked side while your waiting for the other side to cook... repeat..
Tasty variation.. Black onion seeds (Kollungi seeds) rolled into the dough on the last pass give a yummy smell and flavour..

Re: Naan Bread

The naan you get in an Indian restaurant is done in a special clay oven.

Re: Naan Bread

For skillet breads I like to use my big cast aluminum griddle that covers two burners. Speeds up production if there are more than two people on board.

I just wanted to thank everyone for your posts. I haven't been able to try any of the recipes yet because I haven't been able to find any yeast yet. I went to my third store today.

If you are using yeast then you will want 1 sachet ( or teaspoon ) per 2 cups flour

In the Punjab yeast is not used... or baking powder... its yoghurt..
They don't have yeast or baking powder in the village's... their food also tastes nothing like anything you'll buy in a restaurant in the West.. its loads better..

Re: Naan Bread

Sanjeev Kapoor is kind of like Rachael Ray ;-) I didn't check every one of the naan recipes here but I think at least the garlic naan uses baking soda. Yoghurt makes the naan soft and fluffy.

Yoghurt would work just fine with your original recipe boatman. Add it instead of the milk. That will make the dough a little dry so you toss in a slurp of water. Something near a half cup would do it.

Only problem is Western yoghurt is crap... barely alive..
out there its fresh every day... just wander down the road in the morning and buy a half kilo 'baggie' every morning along with your Hulva Puri breakfast...
