When we set out to create our artisan sourdough recipe naan bread, we dug deep into our heritage. Our business founder Mazhar Butt knows a thing or two about making naan that's light and airy and full of flavour. His mother taught him how. Then we asked today's consumers what makes a great naan. Soft and fluffy, they said, and not too thick. They rated our new artisan sourdough recipe naan better than our leading competitor's product, so we know that Mr Butt's mum was right all along.

It’s all about the bubble

Our lightest, bubbliest and tastiest naan ever is baked to our own unique artisan sourdough recipe for a deliciously crisp outer and a light and airy texture inside.

We use all natural ingredients

We use only the finest ingredients and add natural yogurt to our sourdough recipe to help make our premium naan very light and bubbly indeed.

Tiny seeds make a big difference

The cumin and nigella seeds baked into our sourdough recipe naan bread add a nutty and gently spicy flavour that's deliciously moreish. Even more so because we toast them first to release their flavour.

No ordinary process

No ordinary naan bread calls for an extraordinary production process, so we've developed our own unique artisan sourdough recipe. This live cultured sourdough – our ‘starter’ – combined with a long fermentation period, is at the heart of our process. ‘Feeding’ the starter, creating a ‘mother dough’ then a ‘mature sour’ and eventually our final dough takes a little longer to be ready. But we’re in no hurry.

This patient process improves both flavour and texture, and because we don’t need to use raising agents we create a more natural product. We add natural yoghurt for a light and airy texture, pure butter ghee for colour and taste, and toasted Kalonji and cumin seeds for a nutty flavour. That’s what makes our lightest, bubbliest naan bread so special.
