Who doesn't love the smell of freshly baked bread lingering around the house? Exactly, because it's too divine not to love it! I feel like it is such a heart warming smell, it almost makes a house feel like a home. Making these naan rolls was so easy, the only part that takes some time is the proving/rising of the dough. With any dough that involves yeast, the dough has to be given the time to rise. The first proving process should be for about an hour, in a warm space (I usually put it in my oven after heating it up for a bit and cover with a clean cloth over the top). The second time you let it rise, after you have set it out the way you want, can be for about 30 minutes. Once this is all done, it should bake perfectly and rise beautifully. I enjoyed this warm naan with just a sliver of butter, so as not to ruin the taste. But it goes with everything, from cheese to curries.
Recipe: Naan rolls
3 cups of flour
1 table spoon of fennel seeds
5ml of salt
1 packet instant dry yeast
20ml melted butter
1 egg beaten
350ml warm milk
Fennel and sesame seeds to sprinkle after
Add the dry ingredients to a bowl, and combine well.
Then add, the butter, milk, and egg and beat it on a medium level.
The dough will be very sticky, so add flour until the dough comes off the sides of the bowl.
Place the dough in a well oiled bowl, and let rise for an hour.
Once that's done.
Knead the dough for a few minutes, and make into equal round balls and place into a oven proof container (either with baking paper underneath or non-stick spray.
Let it rise again for 30 minutes.
Then use another egg to brush the top of the rolls.
Bake at 180 degrees C for about 30 minutes.
Melt some butter when the rolls are done and brush over the top so the rolls don't get too crunchy.
Let cool, sprinkle the seeds on top and then enjoy!
