A basic naan bread recipe that you can add any flavours to! I love to put poppy seeds in mine.

I don’t know about you but I love a good curry! I’ve tried making curries from scratch with the small amount of spices I have in my cupboard, however, I always feel as though they lack depth of flavour. So… when we went to the Foodies festival earlier this year we discovered Tyga curry boxes. You get all the spices and herbs for 2 main course meals and 2 side dishes. We get a box delivered once every 3 months as we feel that’s enough for us. Wow! The flavours are amazing! Such a rich taste and definitely tastier than a takeaway. The only thing missing was naan breads 🙂



This is a video of how i shape dough into a ball to make it easier to roll out into circular or oval shapes (this is step 6 below)

Firstly mix the yeast, honey and 125ml water into a bowl and let that rest for a few minutes until it starts to froth or bubble a little.


Meanwhile put the flour and salt into the mixing bowl and stir. Make a small well in the middle and add a tbsp of the melted butter, the yoghurt and lastly the yeast mixture.


Attach the dough hook to the mixer and put it onto the slowest speed to combine the ingredients together. When it is forming a dough turn the speed up a little bit to knead it properly.


The dough should be pretty sticky and soft. When the mixer has been kneading the dough for about 5 mins, turn it off. Put a little bit of olive oil onto the work surface and take the dough out and knead it on the surface for a further 3-4 mins. (The olive oil stops it from sticking to the surface and doesn't alter the texture of the dough like adding more flour can do). Add more oil to the worktop if needed, but don't go too crazy!


I use the same bowl that I have mixed the dough in, just make sure it's reasonably clean and oil it very lightly. Add the dough to the bowl and if you have the kitchen aid silicone lid, just pop that on the bowl and leave it to rise for 1 hr or until doubled in size (if you don't have a kitchen aid just cover the bowl with a lightly damp tea towel).


    Once risen, knock the dough back with your hands and divide into six pieces. Roll each piece into a ball (see the video above)


    Once shaped into a ball, roll them out into oval shapes (get them as thin as you can) Mine definitely don't look evenly shaped but that's all part of the charm!

    5-7 mins


    Once shaped, heat a frying pan with some of the left over melted butter and once the pan is hot enough add your first naan bread. It takes roughly 5-7 minutes to cook (turning halfway through)


      They should puff up a little in the pan to create a air pocket and they will have those distinctive brown spots that naan breads have! Transfer onto a wire rack and brush the naan breads with the remaining melted butter and eat whilst still nice and warm!
