Whole-wheat naans instructions
- With a spoon, in a bowl add the flour, chia seeds, salt and yeast. Mix. Then add the oil and mix. Finally mix in the yogurt. It should seem too wet in some places and dry in others with other bits of flour. It'll look like you've possibly gone wrong. But that's good..
- On a cleaned and lightly floured surface, place your dough. Combine it all with your hands and kneed for 10-15 minutes until the dough springs back when you poke it. If your dough feels too sticky add some more flour and vice versa. When right it should be ever so slightly sticky to the touch but not enough to stick to your hands..
- Add some olive oil (or another plain oil) to the bowl and roll the dough in it. Once the dough is covered, place a kitchen towel over it and leave somehwere warm or by a radiator for a minimum of 30 minutes..
- About 15 minutes before you're ready to serve your food/eat, take the dough out onto a clean floured surface and need for 10-15 minutes again..
- Split it into 3-4 and roll them out into rough circles about 1cm thick or half the thickness of your index finger.
- In a hot pan add oil and allow it to get really hot. Once it's hot add one of your naans. When bubbles start to form, flip it..
- Cook on the other side for a couple more minutes before transferring to a plate (you can put kitchen towel between each naan to soak up any excess oil, but it's optional). Once they're all cooked flip the pile around so the coolest one is at the top and serve.
