Cooking Methods

Warm the milk until it is just hot to hand.

Stir in the Sugar and Yeast and leave for 20 minutes.

Sift the flour into a big bowl and add Salt and Baking Powder.

Slowly stir in the Yeast mixture and the rest of the ingredients and mix to a dough.

Knead the dough for approx 10 minutes and place it in a covered bowl for an hour and a half in a warm place. It should double in size.

Preheat the oven to the highest heat.

Knead the dough gently and divide into 4 portions and roll into a tear shape.

Grease a baking tray, lay out the bread. Sprinkle evenly with the Nuts and Seeds and place in the oven and cook for 10 minutes.

Then place the Nan's under a hot grill for a further minute or so until brown.

Lightly dust the breads with Vegetable Oil before serving.
