Naan with herbs


-60 g warm water. 
-580 g all-purpose flour.
-1 tablespoon honey. 
-7 g  instant dry yeast (or 21 g fresh yeast). 
-175 g whole milk. 
-2 greek yogurts (200 g). 
-80 g melted butter+ 10 g to brush your breads.
-4 g baking powder (like Royal). 
-5 g baking powder. 
-3 g salt. 
-Feta cheese and mozzarella cheese (you choose quantities, but 30 g each are an example). 
-2 garlic cloves, crushed.
-1 cup of fresh herbs (I used basil and chive).
-1 pinch of crushed chillies (or 1 + 1/2 if you like them spicy). 
  1. First of all we will dissolve our instant yeast on the warm water. This step won’t be necessary if we use fresh yeast.
  2. In a bowl we mix all the ingredients: milk, greek yogurts, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add the warm water, yeast and honey to the mixture and start kneading your bread. The bread should be sticky.
  4. Form a ball and let it rise for an hour covered with plastic film, or overnight into the fridge. 
  5. Prepare the filling mixing fresh herbs, crushed garlic, crushed chillies and cheese. If you have blender or robot this step will be easier. 
  6. Divide the dough into 6-8 portions. Roll every piece of the dough and fill ir with the herbs and cheese. 
  7. Close every bread like you would close an envelope and roll it gently again. 
  8. Prepare and skillet with some olive oil and brush every naan bread with butter and cook them 1 minute and flip the bread to cook it for another minute. There will be bubbles on the bread surface and it will be golden. 
  9. Once each bread will be cook, brush it with some melted butter. The texture will be crunchy and soft in the inside.
  10. You can decorate your naan with some chive and herbs and enjoy!
