Naan bread/paratha with garlic butter

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground psyllium husk powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • coconut oil/butter, for frying
  • sea salt

Garlic butter

  • 50 grams butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

Directions

  • Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add oil and then boiling water 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. 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 coconut oil over medium heat until the Naan turn a nice golden
  • 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.
