BM450 Program 10 - Dough


  1. Remove the bread pan from the bread maker and fit the kneader.
  2. Pour water, yoghurt, melted butter, ghee or oil into the bread pan. Then add the rest of the ingredients except for the yeast.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour, but not down as far as the liquid, and add the yeast.
  4. Insert and lock the bread pan onto the bread maker. Select program 10 DOUGH from the menu. Press start.
  5. Just before the end of the cycle place 3 baking sheets in the oven and preheat the oven to its highest setting. At the end of the cycle, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knock back the dough and divide into 3 equal pieces and shape into balls.
  6. Roll out into oval shapes about 25cm (10 in) long and 13 cm (5 in) wide. Preheat the grill. Place the naan on the preheated baking sheets and bake for 4-5 minutes, until puffed up. Remove from the oven and place under the preheated grill, until browned and slightly puffed up.
  7. Brush with melted butter or ghee and serve warm.


Add 5ml (1 tsp) each of ground corriander and cumin with the flour for a spicy naan. To make wholemeal naan substitute 50% of the white bread flour with wholemeal.

If wished include a crushed garlic clove and/or a little freshly ground black pepper for a savory twist. Black pepper can also be used as a final dusting after brushing with melted butter or ghee.
