I've been really bad about baking bread since we moved to Edinburgh...I am not sure why, it isn't like I haven't had the time...I just haven't been doing it. I am trying to get focused and get motivated and have been looking at soda bread recipes, multi grain recipes, baking with rye flour...different things to get me going again. To ease myself back into it (like it is so hard....) I made this easy Naan recipe on Friday night to help streeeeetch our left over curry.
I was actually really pleased with myself. These Naan were puffy, had a good texture and tasted pretty close to the real thing (except that the bottom wasn't as nicely toasted as the top...maybe a quick flip over next time). The dough was tough when I was kneading it, and I wasn't really convinced that it was going to rise at all...but sure enough after 15 mins resting it had risen a bit and was soft when I poked it. Divided into 4 pieces, it rolled out surprisingly well. I topped these Naan with nigella, black mustard and cumin seeds and then brushed them with a little oil once they had baked. Easy Peasy...and oh so tasty!
