  • 150 g (1 cup / 5 oz) plain flour
  • 2 tbsp plain yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp melted ghee or butter
  • 3 tbsp lukewarm water
  • ½ tsp yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp baking soda
For the stuffing
  • 2 tbsp sultanas or raisins
  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds, crushed lightly
  • 1 tbsp dessicated coconut
  • 2 tsp sugar (optional)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil or ghee
  1. Add the yeast and sugar to the water and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Sieve the flour, salt and baking soda into a bowl. Add in the yeast mixture, the ghee, and the yoghurt. Mix to a smooth, soft dough.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for 5 minutes.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl. Cover and stand in a warm place for about 2 hours until the dough roughly doubles in size.
  5. Remove the risen dough from the bowl and place on a floured surface. Punch the dough down and knead for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Split the dough into two pieces. Roll the pieces into balls. Place a ball on a floured surface and roll out to about 15-20 cm (6″).
  7. Place half the stuffing mixture in the middle of the dough. Fold the dough over and press the edges together. Work into a ball and place back on the floured surface with the creases on the underside. Roll out to about 15 cm (6″) and place on a tray. Brush with melted ghee or butter. Repeat with the remaining dough piece.
  8. Cover the naans and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
  9. Turn your grill onto maximum and place a baking tray underneath.
  10. Place the naan on a hot tawa or flat pan for about 35-40 seconds until it starts to bubble slightly.
  11. Transfer the naan to the hot baking tray and cook under the hot grill for about 1-2 minutes until the naan starts to turn brown.
  12. Brush the naan lightly with melted ghee before serving.
Titli's Tips
The tava (pan) and the grill pan should be very hot to ensure the naan is cooked properly.
