Recipe for Low Carb Bread

Naan bread is a typical type of bread in Indian cuisine, made from wheat flour. In the homemade paleo version, always gluten-free, it was made with yucca starch. But with this ketogenic diet one has to make a living and find low-carb substitutes. Psyllium, my great ally, is key in this recipe to give elasticity to the dough and thus be able to get a quite showy naan bread and above all with very good taste.

I remind you that if you want to know where I usually buy some ingredients or the brand of them, for example, psyllium, I have a shopping list available to consult.

I usually accompany this Indian bread with a good dish of curry or some stir-fry with spices.

naan bread texture

Ingredients, for about 8 loaves

¾ cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons psyllium (ground)
½ tsp. yeast or propellant that you use
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
2 cups boiling water
cumin grains, highly recommended
Salt, optional

I always use meters that I got through Amazon, for cups and spoons, solids or liquids, this way I forget to use the scale.

Instructions

We put the water to heat, in the microwave even if you have. And we melt the coconut oil, if we are in cold season you know that it solidifies.

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. The coconut flour, psyllium, yeast and cumin grains. As well as the salt.

Add the hot water and the coconut oil. Mix with the help of a spatula or spoon and let it rest for 5 minutes.

Knead again with your hands, the consistency will be that of a spongy dough. Divide the dough and form small balls, between 6/8. Place each ball on a baking sheet and flatten it with the help of a board or plate. Our naan bread is almost ready.

The original recipe is to fry the bread in a pan with butter or more coconut / olive oil. But I have tried cooking the bread directly in the oven and I like the result better. Besides that it is much faster to cook a big batch of bread.

Finally we put the bread on the baking paper and a rack in the oven, preheated to 200grs. We cook it for 15 minutes.

The dough is actually very good, even raw. I confess that it’s a vice to go around biting into it, so it doesn’t need much cooking. Just enough for the bread to swell, brown a little and lose moisture. If you have a fan option in the oven I recommend it.

If you have enough, which I doubt, you can keep the bread in the fridge or freeze it for another time.
