  4. Cover a flat surface with flour.
  5. Empty the mixture on to the surface and begin to knead it into a dough.
  6. Place the dough back in the bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave the dough to rise. (This can take up to four hours).


Baking The Naan Bread

  2. Separate the dough into 6 same sized balls and roll it into rectangles around 6mm thick.

  4. Place baking paper on the hot trays (be careful not to burn yourself) and then place the naan dough onto the trays.
