Naan bread question
« on: August 17, 2017, 09:54:39 am »
Because I am a bread learner, I am about to have a go at a vegan naan, but I have a query.

If the recipe says:

In a large mixing bowl, pour warm water and stir in the sugar. Sprinkle yeast on the water and let sit for 10 minutes or until frothy.

In another bowl, combine, the flour with salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Add 3.5 cups of the flour mixture, 3 Tbsp oil and ĺ cup yogurt to the yeast bowl. Mix well to combine. Add more flour a few Tablespoons at a time to make a soft smooth dough. Knead in the bowl or on a floured surface for 3 to 4 minutes.


Can I simply put the lot into the TMX at once and knead for the same time as above or do I change the kneading minutes?

Many thanks

Check out Chookie's naan recipe here Marina, she just throws everything in and kneads for 4 minutes and the ingredients are similar to yours (didn't check quantities though) with the exception yours has baking powder and baking soda.  Perhaps your recipe is for plain flour not bread flour.  Anyway, compare the 2 and you will probably be able to use Chookie's method I reckon.  I'd wait for her to confirm that though!

I usually make Tenina's Naan which was in the first thermomix calendar. https://tenina.com/recipes/na-na-naan-bread
It has an egg in though. 😜
