Recipe: Home-made Naans

Posted Sep 15 2009 10:06pm

This is not a true naan dish.  I do not own a tandoor dish, where naans are deliciously made next to tandoori chicken.  Unfortunately I don’t own one and I don’t think I ever will.  BUT, these naans are for those, like me, that don’t have a tandoori oven handy.  They taste like the next best thing and I wouldn’t be surprised, that if you served these, people will think that you’ve just gone and got take out!

Serve these with your favourite curry and topple with a little garlic butter!  Mmmm!


  • 6


  • 2/5 cups Self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • a little butter and garlic mixed together


  1. Mix the baking powder in your warm milk and stir well for a couple of minutes.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients together before adding the milk mixture.
  3. Stir and then knead the mixture.
  4. Wrap it in some plastic wrap tightly and store in the microwave or a warm place for 20 minutes to an hour.
  5. Split the mixture into 6 balls.
  6. Flatten the balls individually by squashing and stretching each side, twisting as you go.
  7. Once your happy, in a dry but hot pan, place the naan.  Allow it to brown off before turning and doing the same on the other side.
  8. Mix the garlic and butter together.
  9. Take the naan on the pan and brush some over the top, before serving hot!
