Naan Bread with Parsley Butter
Shop bought naan bread will never satisfy again once you have tried my home made naan bread, and brushed with the melted parsley butter – just delicious!
- 3½ cups all purpose flour (I use king arthur)
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 large room temperature egg
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 2¼ tsp active dry yeast
- 2 tbsp honey
- ¼ cup plain yoghurt
- 1 cup warm water at 110 degrees
For the topping:
- Melted butter
- Chopped fresh parsley
- Start by activating the yeast so place the warm water and honey into the bowl of an electric stand mixer , give a stir and sprinkle over the yeast and stir again. Leave to stand for between 5-10 minutes until it becomes creamy and foamy.
- Now add in the flour, egg, yoghurt, salt and baking powder and using the dough attachment mix on a low speed for a couple of minutes until sticky but smooth.
- The dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl and form a ball.
- Grease a mixing bowl and shape the dough into a ball and place into the greased bowl.
- Cover and place somewhere warm to rise for around an hour. It should have doubled in size by then.
- Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Cut into six pieces and roll each piece into an oval shape around ¼ inch thick.
- Heat a non stick pan over a medium to high heat ( i like to add a little butter or olive oil for extra colour and flavour but you can cook them in a dry pan)
- Add one of the rolled out doughs and cook until bubbling up and golden then flip to cook the other side for around 45 seconds to one minute.
- Transfer to a warm plate whilst you cook the rest.
- Brush each naan bread with the melted parsley butter and devour!
