      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Put water, 1tsp of the sugar and the yeast in the mixing bowl, 5min, 37 deg, stir.
  2. 2. add the yoghurt and olive oil, 20 sec, speed 1.
  3. 3. add any optional garlic or seeds, add the flour, salt, remaining spoon of sugar and bicarb to the yoghurt mixture, 7 sec speed 5.
  4. 4. Use knead function for 3 minutes, the transfer to a lightly oiled bowl to rest and rise for 2-4 hours. The mixture can be quite sticky.
  5. 5. When it is 2-3 times it's original size, gather into a ball in the bowl or place on a mat
  6. 6. Heat some butter in a frying pan, and with lightly floured hands grab a golf ball size of dough and either shape with your hand or flatten with a rolling pin. I prefer to shape by hand, a rough shape even with a couple of holes seems to make for a better texture.
  7. 7. Fry the naan in the melted butter for 30 secs to 1 minute on each side depending on the pan temperature, ideally there should be browned spots on the naan where it touches the pan. Put on a plate and cover with a tea towel while you prepare the rest.
  8. 8. Rinse and repeat until all the dough is used.

Many thanks to bookbabe on the Australian community website who published this recipe. I have added it here as it is fab and works very well with gluten free plain flour although obviously it doesn't rise as much Can be served as prepared or smothered in garlic butter or sprinkle with salt or poppy seeds as preferred. WARNING very moreish!
