Bread Machine Naan Bread Recipe


Naan Bread Recipes

Friday night is date night for my husband and me, and usually I will make a curry for both of us. We did often enjoy getting take away from our local kebab shop near our previous house, which was way more authentic than my version, but also a lot more expensive!

One of the benefits, in a money saving sense at least, of moving to such a rural area, is that take away is no longer possible, so I am forced to make our curry myself 😉 It also means that I know exactly what has gone into it, and can avoid a lot of added sugar and so on.

We both enjoy naan bread with our curry, and having found a bread machine naan bread recipe in a library book a few years ago, I have adapted it several times until it turns out the way I would like it to. If you don’t have a bread machine, you could easily knead the dough by hand, leaving it to rise covered for a few hours until it has doubled in size. Obviously our date night menu is not really Trim Healthy Mama compatible, but I’ve got lots of other meals in a week to work on that!

We occasionally also have homemade onion bhajis, but these are extra work, and also deep fried, so I wouldn’t want to have them too often. I will maybe post my onion bhaji recipe in future. Our preferred type of naan is garlic and coriander. So, with apologies to anyone reading who makes real, authentic naan, here is my recipe:

Garlic and Coriander Bread Machine Naan Bread Recipe

(Makes 4 naan breads)

3/4 cup lukewarm milk

1/3 cup plain yoghurt

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

1 clove garlic, minced

2 TBSP oil

3 cups bread flour (I use chapatti flour to save money, but you can use your preferred bread flour)

1.5 tsp ground coriander (cilantro)

1 tsp fast active yeast

2 TBSP melted butter, for brushing

Put all the ingredients into the bread machine, in the order given. This allows the dough to mix better. Set machine to dough and switch on.

When risen, turn the dough out onto a floured surface.

Divide the dough into four pieces, setting 3 of them aside.

Shape the quarter piece of dough into a teardrop shape, and use a rolling pin to roll out to about quarter inch thick, keeping the teardrop shape.

Place on baking tray and brush all over with the melted butter.

Bake in oven at 200 C / 400 F / Gas Mark 6 for 15 – 20 minutes or until naan bread is golden brown and bubbling, but not over done.

Serve with curry and enjoy!

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe. My daughter loves Naan bread. I can buy it ready made but it’s frozen and never tastes that great. I’m sure it tastes heavenly, hot, out of the oven. Have a great week 🙂

    • Thank you Lilly’s Mom! Yes, I used to buy ready made naan bread too, but it is very nice to have it fresh. Blessings.

  2. So glad to find your blog! I’ve completed my homeschooling years, here in Virginia. This recipe looks delicious 🙂 I’ll be following your blog now to find more good posts like this one!

    • Thanks so much for your kind comment Lisa! It is really encouraging to hear from people who have ‘gone before me’ with regards to hoemschooling, and to learn from them. Blessings 🙂

  3. This looks yummy. We have a curry once a week but I had never thought to make a naan to go with it. We usually go without! My husband will thank you greatly for this – he loves naan!

    • Hi Claire 🙂 Glad to hear that! Occasionally if I don’t have time for the naan, I just make rice to go with the curry, but the naan is so much better!

  4. Thanks Gwen for sharing this post with us at Good Morning Mondays. We don’t really eat curries here (my husband can’t handle spicy, hot food) but I would love to try these Naan Breads. Have a great weekend. Blessings

    • Thank you Terri. I suppose the naan bread could really go with any sort of meat stew, and you can easily miss out the coriander and/or garlic to make them a plain naan.

    • Thank you Ricki 🙂 I haven’t posted a curry recipe yet, but perhaps I should make that my next recipe post!
