Cooking Steps

  • 1

    Chuck your flour, yeast, salt and sugar into a bowl and gently combine. If using a mixer, stir it up on low.

  • 2

    Splash in water and oil and combine again for 10 minutes until you have a fantastic elastic dough.

  • 3

    Cover the bowl with cling film and leave it to rise for 20 minutes.

  • 4

    Once you've chilled for twenty mins, grab your dough and give it a good press down and divide it up into three roughly equal balls.

  • 5

    Place one ball on a floured board and use your hands or a rolling pin to form the naan breads into big teardrop shapes.

  • 6

    Put a pan over a high heat and allow it to get searingly hot.

  • 7

    Place the dough onto the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes, until puffed up and a lil' bit charred.

  • 8

    Flip the bread and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

  • 9

    Remove to a plate and drizzle with the garlic butter.

  • 10

    Cover with foil and keep in a low oven whilst you prepare the other breads.

  • 11

    Place your butter in a small microwavable bowl and give it a quick blast for 45-60 seconds or until mellow and melted.

  • 12

    Stir in a few teaspoons of Very Lazy garlic paste and a sprinkle of coriander. Spoon onto breads when ready!
