Description

Naan bread is a traditional Indian flatbread.  It is traditionally baked inside a very hot clay tandoor oven.  Most of us do not have a tandoor oven in our kitchens but you can make a homemade version of tandoor by using your stovetop and a hot skillet.  The benefit of making homemade naan is that you can make it vegan and gluten-free too!


Ingredients

Scale

1 cup teff flour

2 tbsp coconut flour

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp fennel seeds 

1 tsp turmeric 

salt & pepper

1 tbsp coconut oil

½ cup hot water


Instructions

  • Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl
  • I make a well in the centre of the bowl before pouring the water in the centre
  • Then I combine the dry ingredients into the water from the edge of the bowl
  • Knead the mixture with your hands feel free to add more flour if it feels too sticky or more water if it’s too dry
  • Divide the dough mixture into 3 balls
  • Flatten the balls with a small rolling pin or the back of your hand
  • Heat the oil in a good non-stick heavy-based frying pan
  • Pan sear both sides of the bread until lightly toasted, around 30 seconds each side

Notes

  • You can use alternative gluten-free flours for this, I like to stay with ancient grains like buckwheat, millet and farro.
  • I also like to try different Indian herbs & spices, such as coriander or cumin inside
  • I use fennel seeds often as they help with digestion which is important for me when consuming grains
  • This bread is great served with a plant-based curry
  • Fantastic with homemade hummus too
