A really easy Naan bread recipe that "work every time!"


  • 750 g strong White Flour
  • salt
  • 90 g butter
  • 3 teaspoons dried yeast
  • 30 g caster sugar
  • optional Onion seeds (I haven’t managed to find onion seeds here but mustard seeds seem to do just as well)
  • 450 ml warm milk
  • Ghee or butter


  • Mix flour and salt
  • Rub butter into flour and salt
  • Mix in sugar, yeast and onion seeds (if using)
  • Make a well in the middle and stir in the milk
  • Knead to a dough
  • Leave in a warm place to rise
  • Make into 8 pieces (flatten – rolling pin useful here!)
  • Put grill on – it needs to be very hot – and the pan needs to be hot before putting bread on
  • Cook under grill turning once (will rise so need to keep an eye on!)
  • Brush with ghee or butter


They freeze well and can just be popped in the microwave to warm up when required)
