Sourdough naan breads…

There’s been a lot of sourdough action in my kitchen recently, and I mean a HUGE amount, of which I will have exciting news to share with you all soon. In the meantime, a thrown together meal from the weekend that worked very nicely…

I had some bubbly active starter readily available, and someone on Facebook mentioned sourdough naan breads, and that was that…I decided to see what I could create…luckily I took some notes…

Makes 4 small breads

Ingredients

50g active sourdough starter

100g natural yoghurt

150g plain/all purpose flour

20g olive oil

1/2tsp salt

Method

Mix everything together well, knead it briefly then cover and set aside. Let it prove for an hour or so.

Next, split the dough into 4, make the portions into balls, flatten and on a floured surface, roll them out into rounds about 5mm thick – my rounds were very very rough as you can see!

Heat a tawa or large wide pan over a medium heat. Place the breads into the dry pan and cook for several minutes until the surface starts to brown in places.

Turn the breads, sprinkle the surface with olive oil to keep it moist, and cook the underside until cooked through.

Once cooked, stack the breads onto a plate lined with a tea towel and wrap them to keep them warm.

Eat at will!

I served mine with some za’atar mixed with olive oil; some tahini, buttermilk and lemon juice dressing; and a dip made of chickpeas and spinach cooked with green harissa, cooled and blended with tahini, lemon juice and water.

A very nice dinner indeed πŸ™‚

Have a great week…

    Oh these look so good. And so simple to make. I would totally make these if i hadn’t accidentally killed my starter last summer. πŸ™ But when I get around to making another one, these are definitely on the list. Bookmarking. 😊

    I will have to get going on this sourdough starter, I will!!
    But apart from the lovely looking bread, what about those wonderful accompaniments. My goodness how I would love those, even from the end of my finger!!

    Wow Elaine – you got me thinking of my old love for Peshwari naan – also my hubby just experimented making naan with coconut flour and psyllium husk (as a gluten free alternative) – it worked well but yours looks much more tempting. And a huge congrats on the new bread site – I’m sure you’re going to inspire so many budding bread makers!
