Indian Dinner: Part 1 – Easy Homemade Naan Bread

You know when you go to the Indian restaurant and you get like 2 to 4 pieces of Naan bread…and you’re always wishing for more?

Here’s a recipe for delicious and easy homemade Naan Bread. I love it so much, it is fun making and it tastes so good. I made it last night for our curry dinner and the two men who ate with me were impressed. My boy gave me the heart-shaped eyes and said thank you too much, while the other one said ‘I would marry a girl who can cook like this’. Pretty strong reaction, yaaa, I almost lost my appetite ;D! Hehe no, it is always awesome to have good eaters who appreciate your cooking at the table!

If you wanna cook to get married, all you need is a non sticky pan and those ingredients:  

500 g Flour

 150 ml Milk
2 1/2 tablespoons of Sugar
2 Teaspoons of Dry Yeast
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 tablespoons of Oil (Veggie Oil)
150 ml of plain Yogourt (give it a stir)
1 big egg (give it a stir as well!)

In a small bowl, mix the milk at room temperature and add the sugar and yeast to it. Stir and let it sit in a warm place for about 20 minutes, until the yeast gets foamy. (I usually leave it by the stove when I have something cooking there).

Mix flour and baking soda in a bigger bowl. When the milk mixture is ready, add it to the flour, as well as the oil, yogourt and egg. Mix all ingredients and then take them out of the bowl. Put some flour on a table or wherever you’re working and knead the dough with your hands for 10 minutes. Then add a teaspoon of oil to your bowl, roll your dough ball in it and let it sit at a warm place, covered with a towel, for up to one hour or until it’s risen a lot. I used rapid rise dry yeast and I probably let it rise for half an hour and it was fine.

Take it out and form 6-8 little balls. Roll out thinly, brush a little with some oil and then put in your very hot and dry non-sticky pan, brushed side first! Leave on one side until bubbles come up, switch, another minute and done! :) Mhhhhhh! Dip it in your curry or whatever you’re cooking at the side and see how you like it.
