  • Set your stand mixer up with a dough hook.
  • Place the flour, yeast, salt and sugar into the bowl of your stand mixer and mix on low to combine.
  • Pour in the water and oil and mix on low for 10 minutes until you have an elastic dough.
  • Cover the bowl with cling film and leave it to rise for 20 minutes.

To Make Dough (BY HAND METHOD)

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt.
  • Add the water and oil, then use a fork or butter knife to combine all the ingredients, once you have a raggy looking dough, start using your hands to bring the dough together, until the sides of the bowl are clean.
  • Empty the dough on a floured board and knead the dough for 15 minutes.
  • Place in a bowl, cover with cling wrap and leave for 20 minutes.

To Form and Cook The Dough

  • Once the dough has sat for 20 minutes, punch it back down and then divide the dough into three roughly equal balls.
  • Place one ball on a floured board and use your hands or a rolling pin to form the naan breads into oval/teardrop shapes (ensure they will fit in your skillet/griddle). (see note 4)
  • Put a heavy skillet/griddle over a high heat and allow it to get searingly hot.
  • Place the dough onto the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes, it should start to puff up and charr lightly.
  • Flip the bread and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove to a plate and drizzle with the garlic butter.
  • Cover with foil and keep in a low oven whilst you prepare the other breads.
