Naan Bread

Cooking with Kids

My youngest Nanny Kid loves Naan. Pop the Indian flat bread in the toaster for a moment and that’s all she needs as a snack or side dish to any meal. Typically Naan made with yeast but I found this simple recipe online that tastes great without using yeast. Trust me, after making this Indian flatbread at home, or at your nanny job, you’ll never go back to buying it at a store. Let the kids help with every part of making the bread. Just make sure the adult does the cooking since the pan or griddle gets very hot.

You Will Need:

2 1/2 cups flour – plus more for rolling out naan
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
1 cup milk
garlic butter and sprinkle of salt (optional)

What to Do:

1. Add flour and salt to bowl and mix together.

2. Add sour cream and milk and mix dough together and knead until dough comes together and is fairly smooth.

3. Separate dough into 12 pieces and roll into thin pieces.

4. On a griddle or in a pan, temperature set to roughly 375 F. if you have a temperature gauge. Add rolled out pieces and cook until each side is cooked and lightly browned, you can add cooking spray if you want to but you shouldn’t need it. The dough will bubble and that gives it the signature bumps.

5. If you choose you can toss in garlic butter and sprinkle with salt.
