I get really excited when I can bring recipes to the table (pardon the pun!) that are super simple and delicious and that I know will make you feel like a million bucks for 1. having made them and they’re awesome and 2. for making your recipe arsenal just a little bit stronger.
How To Make 2 Ingredient Naan Bread (Video)
It’s always awesome when all the recipes on salted Mint can do that, but sometimes we just hit on a recipe that I know will be made time and again and you’ll make this 2 ingredient naan bread your own by customising it and adding the flavours that your family loves and before you know it, this naan won’t be my recipe any more, it will be your recipe and a new family classic at that.
You see, these 2 ingredient naan breads are going to be making an appearance at your table a lot. Like A LOTTTTT. They take literally 2 minutes to mix up, and another 2 minutes to cook in a dry frying pan. Ummmm… yeah. That’s it. Seriously, that’s it.
You need a dry frying pan to get all those lovely charred patches that are so typical of traditional naan bread. Those charred patches can range from light golden to dark (almost too dark, but not quite) deep charred brown. The choice is yours. For lighter patches, cook your bread on a lower heat for a longer time. Darker patches… you guessed it. Higher heat, less time. But not too high that we end up on the darker side of burnt.
And please don’t think for a single second that this naan bread can only be served with a curry dish. No. These soft and fluffy, slightly charred breads can be served with chilli, soup, they can be used to mop up after pasta or any other saucy kind of dish. But yes. They are also fabulous with a curry, which we’ll talk about tomorrow.
And No. You do not need to buy self raising flour to make these 2 ingredient naan breads. However, if you choose to make your own self raising flour (see the notes) these will officially be 3 ingredient naan breads. But, you’ll still fall in love with them and they will still be the easiest bread you every make.
