Sourdough Naan Bread

We are so excited to bring you the third recipe in our new ‘Baking Buddies’ recipe series, where we are collaborating with like-minded foodies to bring you a whole host of incredible sourdough recipes. This time we have a mouth-watering sourdough naan bread recipe created by Bonnie from Bon Bon’s Bakes (click here to check out Bonnie’s Instagram). Read on for a short introduction from Bonnie herself.

“Baking and cooking have always been my favourite things to do and when lockdown struck last year, I found myself doing more than ever! I love experimenting and trying out new recipes and after having many Indian takeaways over the last year, I decided I wanted to try my hand at naan bread! This recipe makes deliciously soft and fluffy naan which just can't be beaten! Various toppings and fillings can also be added to suit your tastes. So give them a go, you won't regret it!”

Let’s get into it!

Ingredients (makes 4 large naans)

  • 180g Bread Flour

  • 100g Sourdough Starter

  • 65g Natural or Greek Yoghurt

  • 50g Milk

  • 13g Melted Butter/Margarine

  • 4g Sea Salt


Step 1)

Mix together your bread flour and salt.

In a separate bowl, combine your sourdough starter, milk and yoghurt.

Add your wet ingredients to your dry and mix until well combined and a dough forms.

Leave to rest for 30 minutes.

Step 2)

Perform a set of stretch and folds and leave for another 15-30 minutes.

Repeat this 3 more times.

The dough should be less sticky and a bit more manageable each time you do the stretch and folds.

After your final stretch and fold, leave to rise in a warm place until roughly doubled in size (time depends on the temperature of your room) but approximately 2-3 hours.

Step 3)

Divide your dough into 4

Perform a set of stretch and folds with each part and shape into balls.

Leave to rest for 15 mins.

Step 4)

Roll out each dough ball to approximately 1/8th inch thick.

Heat a frying pan to high heat and evenly coat your pan with oil (it is a good idea to wipe the oil on to the pan with a kitchen towel, to ensure a light even coat).

Put a rolled out piece of naan dough on and wait until bubbly (about 1-2 mins) then flip over and cook until puffed up. Repeat with the remaining dough.

Brush with butter/margarine and enjoy!

These Dishoom-inspired breakfast naan wraps were EPIC!
