Regular forkncork forum contributor DonalH who runs the excellent E Kirby 66 in Kinsale has acceeded to my request to include his nan bread recipe in these pages. I’ve tested it and it works a treat. In his own words – “I spent hours making the curry but the Naan bread took all the plaudits. Simple to add other flavours too – garlic, coriander, cumin, chilli whatever.”
300g strong white flour
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp Greek Yoghurt – at room temperature
1 tbsp Olive Oil
125ml warm milk
3 tbsp melted butter – for brushing
Oven to 230 degrees C
Sift dry ingredients, add wet. Knead to soft dough.
Leave in warm place to double.
Knock back and divide into 4.
Form into shapes of flat bicycle saddles.
Allow to rise about 20 minutes.
Brush with melted butter and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
