What is naan bread? Love the comment about the butter!Notes:
This bread is heavier than white fairy floss, as it is made with a pure product. The same recipe can also be very successfully used to make pizza bases and naan bread. To make naan bread, roll into shape and cook on a very hot BBQ plate on one side until bubbles appear on the upside, then turn and cook a further 1 minute.
To make one loaf:
5cups white unbleached organic spelt flour
2tsp Himalayan rock salt or other unrefined salt
1.5 tsp dried breadmaking yeast
2 1/3 cups warm water (not hot)
Spare flour for needing and lining loaf tin
Combine dry ingredients and mix
Add water and knead until smooth (2-3 mins in kitchen mixer, 15 mins by hand).
Grease a loaf tin with butter and coat with flour
Place dough in tin and allow to rise in a warm place (approx 1.5 - 2hrs depending on temp)
Preheat oven to 160 c fan forced
Cook for about 40 mins. Bread is done when it sounds hollow to tap and a skewer comes out reasonably clean (no sticky dough.
Enjoy warm with fresh organic butter (not margarine you Philistines) and a spread of your choice, or allow to cool, if you have the patience and discipline.
Very good lightly toasted.
Hi MaryI don't know what a 'spelt' flour looks like but it is worth the investment and try your recipe out. Oh, I have only made a vegan banana bread before will that guarantee me not to stuff up your naan bread recipe? LOL
