Naan Bread using a breadmaker

Postby minnie » Sat Jul 31, 2010 5:06 pm

½ cup milk (room temp)
4 tbsp natural yogurt (room temp)
1 tbsp sunflower oil
300g strong plain white flour (baking flour)
1 tsp salt
1½ caster sugar
1 tsp dried yeast
approx 3 tbsp melted ghee or butter for brushing

1. Pour the milk into a bowl and add the yougurst and oil and whisk well.
Place the following ingredients in your breadmaker in the normal order for your breadmaker:
yeast, flour and sugar and salt in separate corners. Pour in milk mixture.

2. Close lid and set to 'basic dough' or 'pizza' setting and press start.
When the dough is ready, remove it from the machine, knock it back on a lightly floured surface, then divide it into 4 equal portions.

3. Roll out each portion to form a flat oval or teardrop shape, about 5mm thick and 23cm long. Cover and leave for 15 mins.

4. Preheat oven to 230 degrees, and heat two baking sheets. Place the naan breads on the hot baking sheets and brush with ghee or butter. Bake for 10-12 mins or until puffed up. Wrap in a clean tea towel and serve warm.

Note: Delicious used also as a pizza base for small pizzas.

I had to come up with a recipe for the newsletter so killed two birds with one stone, so to speak... :lol:

It's really tasty and lovely hot as well we used one for a lunch pizza the next day, a nice size for a small lunch for two.
:D

Hi Vicki - made this yesterday and it was wonderful, left the bought stuff for dead.Do you have any favorite filling suggestions? The first one we had with feta and semi dried tomatoes,but the second we just scoffed on its own - so much for a light lunch! I cooked all four quarters which meant that the top ones were high up in the oven and got a bit dry and crisp but they made great crackers for cheese. I don't know how repeatable that will be however so if anyone had a cracker biscuit recipe it would be much appreciated.

Hi Glyn,

Like you we 'scoffed' one then had one each with curry and the next day I did like a pizza with pasta sauce, mozzarella, salami and onions and it was lovely as a base.

I'm going to try again this weekend... been moving cattle. ;)

I have a cracker recipe in a book packed away of course that I've been 'gunna' make for a long time... I've promised someone a recipe in another book so if I locate it I'll put it up... otherwise someone else may have one.

Hi All,

I have never considered having a breadmaker as I tend to think single-purpose machines don't justify the space they take up. I mix my bread with the dough hook of the trusty old Kenwood (handed down from MIL).

I would be very interested to hear from anyone who has tried baking both ways as to the value of investing in a bread maker.

Cheers
Elaine

Hi Elaine,

From the two recipes I have for Naan the difference with breadmaker opposed to hand is the time to rise - breadmaker 45 mins, by hand 3 hrs.

So to do bread dough it's quicker and does a good job.

For a loaf of multigrain on a quick bake it's 3 hrs to cooked bread, by hand would take longer from my memory of many many years ago...

So I guess it's the time saving aspect, and if someone's like me, who gave up breadmaking after only a few times because it took soooo long then the breadmaker is great. But a good breadmaker is a must, there's a lot of terrible ones that I've seen friends buy and discard because they just weren't doing a good job.
:D

I'm firmly in the no-breadmaker camp!

Had a breadmaker, was top of the range when it was new, and now have the dough hook on the mixer which I use, but haven't perfected yet, or knead breads entirely by hand, which while I have young-ish arthritis free hands, I enjoy the process of.
I've never been a real fan of breadmaker bread anyway. Even when I had the breadmaker I used it mostly for dough only.

I find for proving, I pop the bowl on top and back of my fridge, and thats just the right temperature.
Or above the oven as I am pre-heating it, usually for the final rise.
Mind you, I am also biased towards low yeast and longer slower proving for bread anyhow, just my preference for texture and flavour.

And like you Elaine, not a fan of single purpose appliances. When I first started working, I had cupboards full of them. Got rid of most of them and don't miss them a bit.

Hi,
My DH regularly holds "Mens' Shed Nights" where a group of his mates meet in the machinery shed on our farm. They cook on the old Bega woodfired stove and oven that he has over there, have a few drinks, and talk about everything and anything.Usually they end the night by having a damper with golden syrup for dessert.

I have NO involvement with these events. Last Saturday night was the one exception...they were having a "curry night". So, I dug out this Naan Bread recipe and handed it to DH. He made two lots, so 8 large Naan Breads altogether.

The men all said that they were delicious and were incredulous that they were home made. So thanks for the recipe, it really was a winner and simple to make (so DH says).
