Indian tonight? Don’t skip the bread — make your own keto version of naan with this easy-to-follow recipe. Then, achieve ultimate crave-worthiness with the garlic butter. Mmmmm…
- 175 ml (100 g) coconut flour
- 2 tbsp (15 g) ground psyllium husk powder
- ½ tsp onion powder (optional)
- ½ tsp (2.5 g) baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 75 ml melted coconut oil
- 475 ml boiling water
- coconut oil, for frying (optional)
- sea salt
- Garlic butter
- 110 g butter
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add oil and boiling water (hold some of it back in case it’s not needed) and stir thoroughly.
Allow to rise for five minutes. The dough will turn firm fairly quickly, but stay flexible. It should resemble the consistency of Play-Doh. If you find it’s too runny then add more psyllium husk until it feels right. If it’s too firm, add some of the remaining water. The amount needed may vary depending on what brand of husk or coconut flour you use.
Divide into 6 or 8 pieces and form into balls that you flatten with your hands directly on parchment paper or on the kitchen counter.
Fry rounds in a skillet over medium heat until the Naan turn a nice golden colour. Depending on your skillet you can add some coconut oil to it so the bread doesn’t stick.
Heat the oven to 140°F (70°C) and keep the bread warm while you make more.
Melt the butter and stir in the freshly squeezed garlic. Apply the melted butter on the bread pieces using a brush and sprinkle flaked salt on top.
Pour the rest of the garlic butter in a bowl and dip pieces of bread in it.
