Air Fryer Recipe - Garlic Naan

This week, we will show you how you can use an Enhans air fryer to make a complete a Tandoori meal. Today, we start with garlic naan (flatbread) for a non-rice dinner for your next family gathering.


Ingredients


For the Naan:

  • 1½ tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp granulated white sugar
  • 120ml warm water, 45 Celcius
  • 120 ml warm whole milk,  45 Celcius
  • 125g plain whole milk yoghurt
  •  480g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • olive oil or grape seed oil, as needed for brushing dough
  • chopped cilantro, as needed to garnish

For the Garlic Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp melted ghee, melted butter, or olive oil
  • season with kosher salt, as needed

Direction:

Make the Naan:

  • In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm water and warm milk. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 to 7 minutes until the yeast starts to foam and smells fragrant like beer.
  • Add in the yoghurt, and stir until incorporated. Add the flour and salt. Mix until the dough comes together. Use floured hands to knead the dough until smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the dough to a large greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rest at room temperature for about an hour, until doubled in bulk.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Working with one at a time, roll each piece to a thickness of about 1/4-inch.
  • Spray each side with olive oil and cook in the air fryer about 6 minutes on 190 Celcius.
  • Remember to flip the naan about halfway through the cooking process.
  • Brush or spoon the garlic sauce over the cooked naan. If desired, garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve naan warm.

Make the Garlic Sauce:

  • Place the minced garlic and ghee in a safe microwave bowl.
  • Microwave for 20 to 30 seconds until the ghee is melted and garlic is fragrant.
  • Season with kosher salt, to taste. 
  • Alternately, melt the butter or heat oil over a stove and add garlic.

*Note: The cooked naan dough should be soft and pliable. If dough is cooking too fast or burning, adjust temperature as needed.
