Ingredients

  • chestnut mushrooms 500g, thinly sliced
  • girolle mushrooms 80g, thinly sliced
  • rapeseed oil
 2 tsp
  • red onion ½, finely chopped
  • flat-leaf parsley chopped to make 2 tbsp

NAAN

  • fresh yeast 13g, (see notes below)
  • caster sugar a large pinch
  • whole milk 95ml, warmed
  • plain flour 280g, plus extra for dusting
  • sea salt ¼ tsp
  • baking powder ½ tsp
  • rapeseed oil 2 tsp, plus a little extra for the bowl
  • natural yogurt 95g
  • egg 1 medium, beaten

DRESSING

  • black vinegar 75ml, (see notes below)
  • soy sauce 1 tbsp
  • chipotle paste 1 tbsp

Method

  • Step 1

    Start by making the naan. Mix the yeast and the sugar with the milk and leave for 5-10 minutes until frothy. Put the remaining ingredients into a bowl, pour over the yeasted milk and bring together to form a dough. Knead on a lightly floured worksurface for 10-15 minutes until smooth and elastic. Put into a lightly oiled bowl, cover and leave until doubled in size.

  • Step 2

    Heat the grill to high. Knock back the dough, then divide into 6 balls. Heat a heavy bottomed frying pan over a medium heat and roll out a dough ball on a lightly floured worksurface until 3mm thick. Add to the pan and cook until puffed and golden on the bottom. Put onto a baking sheet and grill until puffed, golden and slightly charred on top. Repeat with the rest of the dough then turn the oven to low, and put the naans in to keep warm.

  • Step 3

    Heat a frying pan and add the mushrooms with the rapeseed oil and fry for 4-5 minutes. Add the dressing ingredients and reduce until the mushrooms are glazed. Remove from the heat, add the red onion and parsley, and top the warm naan breads.
