Nothing brings people together like good food. I enjoy cooking, baking & eating good wholesome food. Most of all, I love talking about it too! I hope you find joy in some of my recipes.

2 cups all purpose flour ½ teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon sugar ¼ teaspoon salt 2 tablespoon oil (you can use coconut, sunflower, canola or olive oil) 2 tablespoon soften butter/ ghee (Clarified butter) 125 ml plain yoghurt at room temperature (can be fat free or double cream) ½ cup milk at room temperature ½ packet instant dry yeast
To Garnish: 1. Kulunji & sesame seeds (optional) 2. Freshly chopped coriander/ parsley (optional) 3. Fresh chopped garlic or spring onions (optional) 4. 2 tablespoon melted butter/ ghee (Clarified butter) in a small bowl for spreading.
To Make Dough: 1. Make a soft dough by combining the above ingredients. 2. Knead for 10 minutes on a floured surface. 3. Finally, knead into a ball mass & place into a lightly oiled glass dish. 4. Cover the dish with a dish cloth & place in a warm area of the kitchen, preferably in a microwave & leave to rise for 1 hour. The dough will rise to double its quantity. 5. Thereafter, knead the dough again for 10 minutes on a floured surface. Divide into equal portions & keep ready for rolling. The size of the portions are your choice.
Frying: 1. Heat a flat frying pan/tawa on medium to high heat. 2. Set your oven on the grill option at the same time. 3. Lightly oil an oven tray & keep ready. 4. Roll each portion of the naan out between 20-22cm or your choice. 5. Sprinkle with seeds & herbs & roll over with rolling pin to press into dough. 6. Place naan on frying pan/tawa & toast the bottom until brown or when the surface of naan has bubbled or swelled up. 7. Remove from pan/tawa, place on oiled tray & into the oven under the grill. Keep oven door ajar to watch & avoid burning. Grill until dark brown & naan has risen. 8. Remove & spread melted butter/ghee (Clarified butter) on top. 9. Serve hot & enjoy! 10. You can easily double the quantity of ingredients for more servings.
