Stuffed Garlic Naan

Yield: 8 small naan


1.5 tsp fast-action yeast
1 tsp sugar
150ml warm water
300g strong white bread flour, plus extra (almost another 300g!) to dust
1 tsp salt
5 tbsp natural yoghurt
2 tbsp melted ghee or butter, plus extra to brush
A little vegetable oil, to grease


1 whole garlic head, finely minced
2 tbsp ghee
1/2 tsp salt

Mix well.


  1. Put yeast, sugar and water into bowl. Let sit until frothy.
  2. Add flour, yogurt, ghee. Mix. Dough is a sticky mess.
  3. Mix in kitchenaid for 5 min on high. Add flour until dough pulls away from sides of bowl and becomes a soft dough.
  4. Coat bowl and dough with oil.
  5. LET RISE, covered, 90-120 min.
  6. Take dough out of oven, beat down, divide into eight balls.
  7. Roll out into a circle. Place a spoonful of garlic stuffing into it. Pull the ends to the middle and twist shut. Roll out into a small naan size, be careful not to tear it or the stuffing will fall out.
  8. Heat oven to 500 F. Place cookie sheet in oven, let it warm up as well.
  9. Wet one side of the dough. Put on cookie sheet. Let cook (2-4 min) until bubbles form on top and naan no longer sticks to cookie sheet.
  10. Flip over, let cook on other side as well (2 min or so).
  11. Take out of oven, brush with ghee.
  12. Serve warm.
  13. Enjoy!

NOTE: This is the guardian recipe adapted for the oven.

NOTE2: You don’t have to stuff with garlic. You can stuff with whatever you like – potatoes, cheese, meat, cauliflower, radish, tofu. Depends on what you like.
