    This Garlic Naan Bread Recipe is by far my favorite recipe for naan bread. naan bread recipe

    Plus it is  pretty simple to make, since we are just using quick rise yeast, flour, yogurt, butter, water and some seasonings.

    That green stuff you see is dried fenugreek leaves and is used a lot in Indian dishes.

    If you cannot get your hands on it you can always substitute for cilantro if desired.

    So if your wanting to serve something special tonight alongside one of your favorite Indian dishes, then this Naan bread is sure to do the trick.

    Garlic Naan Bread Recipe

    There is nothing like fresh naan bread to go with an Indian dish.

    It’s soft and fluffy and so delicious! 

    Garlic Naan Bread Recipe

    Whenever I make Indian food at home, which is a lot. I tend to make either naan bread or steamed rice to go along with our dish.

    My partner says that my garlic naan bread recipe is even better than any of those we have tried in our favorite Indian Restaurants.

    So I must be on to something eh?

    It’s not only technique that makes this naan so good, it’s the ingredients “fresh yogurt, butter and flour that make this naan something extra special.

    Giving it a taste/texture that you’re sure to love, not to mention the addition of ‘kasuri methi’ which is dry fenugreek leaf.

    However if you can’t get your hands on dried fenugreek leaves then you can substitute it with cilantro. Naan bread is best made in batches, that way if you have any leftovers however (i have no idea why you would).

    It can be stored easily it in the freezer for another time all you have to do is heat it prior and it’s good as the day you made it.

    • Once the dough has doubled in size, flour your counter and place the dough on top. Separate the dough with a pastry cutter into 6 pieces.
    • Roll each into a ball with your hands, sprinkle with flour then cover with saran wrap for 20 more minutes to rise some more.
    • Then you can roll each one out individually to make your naan breads. Each bread is to be fried separately!

    HOW TO MAKE GARLIC NAAN BREAD WITHOUT YOGURT

    Simply do not add the yogurt, it will still be amazing! Trust me I have tried both methods, the yogurt just helps it to be a tad more softer. 

    Cooking the Naan Bread

    cooking the naan bread

    • Heat a your skillet over medium – heat and with a basting brush, season the skillet with some ghee/butter.
    • One by one, roll your dough out and place onto the skillet individually.
    • You will see tiny bubbles form on top the dough (see picture above) roughly around 1-2 minutes as the dough begins to take on a light brown color underneath, this is when you will want to flip the dough over. However before flipping the dough brush with ghee/butter and add fenugreek leaves, then flip.
    • Cook on the other side for 1 minute or until golden and transfer to your serving plate and cover with a towel to keep warm.
    • REPEAT steps 3-5 till all pieces are cooked.
    • Serve warm.

    Leftover Naan: Double up the recipe if you want to freeze some for later. Naan Bread can be frozen easily by placing in a ziplock bag. Just place parchment paper in-between each one. This will sea in the freshness and allow you to remove each piece, one at a time as needed. (see pictures below

    You can freeze for another time, simply heat up in the microwave
