Peshwari Naan - Easy to Make Recipe

Every good Indian curry dish deserves some nice naan bread for dipping and mopping and this Peshwari naan recipe is the best.

Why? Because it has a lovely sweet taste to it from the coconut and sultanas. If you want to, add a few flaked almonds to the top.

How to make Peshwari naan

It's so very easy to make and far better than shop-bought naan. Don't forget once the naan is cooked you can freeze them if you have too many; just be sure to defrost them thoroughly before reheating.

Place the naan bread on kitchen foil and sprinkle with a little water. I've done it and they turn out fine.

A Quick Word on Yeast

You really need to use Dried Active Yeast for hand baking and not Easy Bake or Fast Action. Although Easy bake yeast can be used for hand baking, will not get the same result.

How do I know these things? Because I made this mistake in the past and my naan turned out horrid and hard!

Peshwari naan is perfect served with my Slow Cooker Chicken Curry.

Top Tips!

Once cooked you can freeze these and for best results eat within 2 months. 

Defrost thoroughly before cooking. 

Preheat your oven. Place on foil, sprinkle with a little water and reheat.

  3. Fab photo! I love making Naan breads, so much tastier than shop ought ones. Will give these a go.
