What would the Indian cuisine be without naan bread? Easy to prepare, the pita bread is the perfect supplement to Indian dishes, such as curry chicken, but also as a deliciously light supplement for a barbecue evening in one’s own garden.

Ingredients

300 g
140 ml
lukewarm milk
3 tsp
dry yeast
½ tsp
sugar
½ tsp
salt
140 g
yoghurt at room temperature
1
egg

Preparation

  • Mix the flour with the salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Form a well in the middle.
  • Add the yeast and the sugar.
  • Pour in half the lukewarm milk.
  • Wait about ten minutes until bubbles have formed.
  • Mix together the remaining milk, yoghurt and egg and then knead with the prepared flour mix to make a supple dough.
  • Cover the dough with a cloth and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • Use moist hands to shape the dough into balls (without pressure) and then press each one into a round flatbread.
  • Place a non-stick frying pan on the heat.
  • Add the flatbreads and fry both sides at a high temperature.
  • Take care as they can easily burn.
