Garlic & Cheese Naan

Bread 0 Comment

This recipe is based on the wonderful recipe from Lailah (Thermomumma). I used a Thermomix to make the naan dough. You could do this by hand too.


  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 300 grams water
  • 2 teaspoons instant dried yeast
  • 500 grams white bakers flour (I used Coles brand plain flour)
  • 20 grams oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • cheese, grated (filling)
  • Ghee/ butter, (filling)


  1. Place garlic cloves in bowl & chop 3 seconds, speed 9
  2. Add water, yeast, flour, oil & salt to bowl. Combine 15 seconds, speed 3. Then knead 6 minutes dough function. Dough mode
  3. Transfer dough to a thermomat or oiled bowl & cover with a tea-towel. Let this sit & rest for 15 minutes before working with it.
  4. Turn dough out, divide into 6-8 portions & roll into balls. Cover with a tea-towel to stop the dough from drying out.
  5. On a well floured bench take one of the balls & roll/flatten out to the size of your hand. Place some fillings in the centre & bring the edges up & pinch together so the fillings are enclosed tightly in a ball.
  6. Turn your dough over so the seam is facing downwards, now roll out nice & thin.
  7. Cook in a dry pan on a medium heat, once done lather on both sides with some ghee/butter.
  8. Continue the process until all naan breads are cooked.

Thanks Lailah for allowing me to share your recipe. It is much appreciated.

Here are some possible filling ideas:

🔹 Spinach, cheese and garlic

🔹 Coriander and Chilli

🔹 Spring onion and cheese

🔹 Cumin and chilli flakes

🔹 Curried potato

Happy cooking! Ren xx
