Naan

The perfect addition to an Indian inspired low protein meal. This flat style bread can also be used as the base for scooping up a low protein dish or can be the base of your next low protein pizza.

Ingredients (for 6 Naan Breads)

  • 1 box (500 g) Loprofin Baking Mix
  • 1 sachet yeast (included with mix)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 50 mL (1/4 cup) canola oil
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) sunflower oil
  • 450 mL (about 15 oz) warm water
  • 2-3 drops gravy browning (optional)
  • Extra Loprofin Mix for shaping

Method:

  1. Place the Loprofin Mix into a mixing bowl. Stir in the yeast sachet, salt and pepper.
  2. Mix the oils, gravy browning and warm water in a separate jug, then pour into the dry ingredients. Mix for 1 minute with a whisk or electric mixer.
  3. Place a piece of cling wrap onto a weighing scale, then dust Loprofin Mix over the wrap and hands to stop the mixture sticking.
  4. Using a large spoon, take a spoonful of the mixture and put onto the cling wrap. For an average size naan bread, you will need 150 g (6 oz) of the mixture.
  5. After weighing, gently transfer the mixture from one hand to the other a couple of times until the mixture is smooth.
  6. Dust the work surface with Loprofin Mix and shape the mixture into a sausage shape.
  7. Transfer onto a greased baking tray and using your hands, pat the dough flat until it resembles a traditional naan shape. It should be about 1/2 cm thick.
  8. Repeat this with the remainder of the mixture.
  9. Place the baking trays into large plastic bags or cover lightly with oiled cling wrap and place in a warm area to rise, until they have doubled in size or more.
  10. Preheat your oven to broil and place the tray of naan bread under the broiler to cook for around 1.5 minutes. It will puff up and turn slightly brown.
  11. Turn the naan over and cook the other side for another minute.
  12. Cool on a wire tray before serving.
