Kids In the Kitchen – Naan Bread

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. This week we made naan bread to go with our usual Saturday night curry. I used to buy naan bread until I found out how easy it was to make, and it tastes much better than the supermarket ones.

First let me say thank you to those who contributed to the linky last week;
On In the Playroom blog the little ones made some yummy Pain Au Chocolat
On ET Speaks from Home blog Miss C helped to make lovely Banana Bread and Almond Cookies
On Eatsamazing, Small Child made Fruit Salad, Yummy Yummy (thinking of The Wiggles!)
And finally, on The Beesley Buzz blog the whole family got stuck in to making some fabulous Mario Cupcakes!
Thank you all so much for joining in and sharing your cooking activities and recipes.

Naan Bread.


300g self-raising flour
2 tbs natural yoghurt
100ml warm water


Measure the flour into a large bowl and add the yoghurt and warm water.
Mix to a slightly sticky dough
Turn out onto a floured work surface and kneed the dough until soft and elastic
Leave the dough, covered with a clean tea towel for about an hour.
(don’t expect it to rise, this is just for the yoghurt to work it’s magic)
Seperate the dough into balls, we usually make four, but you can make more or less depending on how big you want them to be.
Take one ball at a time and pull and stretch into shape, usually a large teardrop, but they can be round or oval if you wish.

Then it’s time for the adult to take over and grill each naan bread under a hot grill for a minute or two on each side, until just starting to brown. They may bubble up and rise under the grill, and it doesn’t matter if you get a couple of darker brown bits where they bubble.

Finally, brush the naan breads with melted butter.

Here are Boo and the Little Man making their naan bread.

    you make it sound so easy! I've always wanted to try making naan breads. Trying to catch up with myself to be able to link up this week as Miss T has been doing more cooking at the Childrens Centre. Just need to find the time to write up! xxx

    That does seem really easy. I have made Naan bread before using a packet mix, and I'd assumed you'd need a big list of ingredients – not 3! 😀
