Garlic Parsley Naan

Garlic Parsley Naan

I found this recipe in my now forever favourite edition of the Dutch Delicious magazine; the Asia update. It’s a brilliant recipe. It just works, people!

I don’t know if it’s the Greek yoghurt they’ve added to the dough, or the chili oil, garlic and parsley mix I’ve brushed all around, but the flavour, structure and overall feel of this Naan is so good you can’t get enough of stealing bites while cooking ’em up.

You have to try this recipe. No, don’t argue with me and give me that ‘free will’ nonsense, you haven’t truly lived until you’ve tasted this naan alongside a classic butter chicken!

Let’s do this!

 
Ingredients:

 
Naan:

16oz/450gr plain flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp instant yeast
3/4 cup/185ml luke-warm water
3.2oz/90gr Greek yoghurt
2 tbsp oil

 

Garlic Parsley Oil:

3 tbsp chili oil
5 tbsp mild oil
3 garlic cloves
handful flat-leaf parsley

 

Directions:

 
I used a pizza stone that I preheated for about 45 minutes at 250Cº (480Fº). You can also use a baking sheet, a pizza plate, or whatever you would normally use and preheat it for 15 minutes.
 

I used my stand-mixer for the job. Combine the flour, instant yeast, sugar and salt.

Pour in the luke-warm water.

Add the Greek yoghurt. I took it out of the fridge for about 20 minutes before using it.

I went for a really good extra-virgin olive oil, but any other oil will do.

Knead it for 5 minutes until it’s a supple dough. Not sure what it was, I guess the Greek yoghurt, but the dough was smooth as velvet.

Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled big bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise until doubled in size. For me it took about an hour and a half.

Use a food processor, immersion blender or regular blender to turn the chili oil, regular oil, parsley and garlic into a flavoured oil. You can adjust the quantities of the garlic and parsley.

Fast forward to 90 minutes later. Punch down the dough and divide it into 6 equal-sized pieces.

Roll the dough pieces into a triangle, or whatever shape you like.

Brush both sides with the flavoured oil and cook them (one at a time) for 5 to 6 minutes, until puffy and golden brown.

Then revel in what you’ve created.

      Yippee!! No more cardboard naans :)
      Consider this recipe bookmarked and put on the menu for coming weekend!

      (and I’ll be waiting in front of the Bruna for them to open their doors tomorrow morning, to get that Delicious magazine)

      Looks so delicious! I’m planning on making them today, but I’m wondering how long I can keep them fresh, because I want to eat them with a curry on Friday. What do you recommend – keep them in foil or freeze them?
      Thank you in advance!

      Kay, I love, love, love Garlic Naan. Whenever I go to Indian restaurants, I order that naan. I find it more flavorful than any other type. I always look for recipes to make at home that are not too difficult.

      I can’t wait to try it and I’ll let you know how it comes out. Thanks.

      1. You won’t be able to create that because they use a tandoor oven, but this is a great bread for when you cook Indian food at home!

      The naan looks perfect! I can only imagine how delicious it tastes. Would make a perfect combo with chicken curry.
