12 Months of Bread - 3/12

This months bread is naan! You probably know by now that I love Indian food, but I often miss out on naans as they are usually make with yoghurt or milk. When Dixon decided to make a seitan tikka curry (which was by far the tastiest thing I've ever eaten), he suggested I make one to go along with it. It also gave me the perfect chance to try out a pizza stone we were bought for Christmas!

I based my naan around this BBC Food recipe. The main tweak being I using soy milk instead of regular milk. I also used the recipe to make one big bread rather than a few small ones, and for the topping I used garlic puree and olive oil. I added some fresh coriander afterwards too. Here is how it turned out:

Lessons Learnt:  I should have made it a little thinner, although it cooked perfectly it wasn't 'naan'-y. Maybe next time I'll cook it for a few minutes first before adding the garlic and oil.

Verdict: Wonderful! Perfect size for two people to share. I was so excited when I saw bubbles popping up whilst it cooked. The garlic made is super tasty too. Its a very very easy recipe, something you can throw together pretty quickly. There is nothing better than fresh, warm bread to go with any meal. For bread number 4 I'm going to try something a little tougher, this was too easy!


  1. beaUUUUtiful! i love making bread but have never attempted naan! if you want a recipe that is a little harder but also great for beginning then i recommend this yeast braid:


    it's the first bread i ever learned to make and it's really customizable =] i can't wait to see what else you make!

    1. Oooh amazing!! It looks great! I really wanted to do a braided bread next actually, maybe i'll base it around yours! Thank you


  2. This looks completely delicious! The presentation is also quite impressive :) I wish I was this good in the kitchen!

  3. I think this is such a cool idea for a /12 challenge - I've loved all of them thus far! I love naan as well (though I usually just eat it on its own...weird? probably...) and this is such a cool recipe! Looks deeeelish.

  4. Nominated you for the Liebster Blogging Award! :)
