Naan bread with coriander

Nan bread is a wonderful addition to food in many countries. It is easy to make naan bread yourself, and it tastes much better than the ones you can buy in the grocery store. This recipe gives 8 great naan breads and has a lovely taste of coriander.

600 g mel

1 ts salt

2 teaspoons sugar

2 dl milk

1/2 packet yeast

3 dl yoghurt

4 tbsp olive oil

2 tablespoons onion seeds

Dried coriander leaves


Knead everything well together and add more flour if necessary.

Let the dough rise for 1 hour, or more, before dividing the dough into 8 equal parts, shape them into buns and let them rise for 1 hour under a cloth.

Press them out to an oval shape, preferably quite thin. Place them on a baking tray with parchment paper and sprinkle on dried coriander leaves. Press the leaves a little into the dough and let them rise for another 30 minutes. Put the oven on full heat, with me it is 300 degrees.

Bake the naan breads high in the oven for 6 - 8 minutes. They should get a nice color, but make sure they do not sting, because this goes fast.

When they are done, grease them with ghee or butter and serve.

A little tip: Bake some of the breads halfway and put them in the freezer. To use them, take them out of the freezer, they thaw quickly, and finish frying them, before greasing them with ghee (or butter)
