Homemade Dishoom Bacon Naan Roll

Learn how to make your own dishoom bacon naan roll at home which is perfect for a weekend brunch.

What Is dishoom?

If you ever get the chance to visit London, I highly recommend checking out Dishoom which is a popular Indian restaurant which is renowned for its trendy menu.

You can order the street food favourite such as the pav bhaji and other signature curries which are nicely presented and taste great.

However, one of the most popular items of their menu is the bacon naan roll which is only included on their breakfast menu, and admittedly this is my favourite meal on their menu, which speaks volumes considering their serve tasty lamb chops on their dinner menu.

Update – it is so popular that during the 2020 lockdown, Dishoom introduced a home cookery kit which consists of the ingredients to make the same bacon naan.

Bacon and naan sounds simple but it is a genius idea, especially when you throw tomato chili chutney in the mix.

DIY Naan Bread

(to make the dough)

  1. Mix (in a large bowl or stand mixer) the flour, instant dry yeast, salt and sugar. 
  2. Add warm water to the bowl, and add oil to your finger tips, and start kneading the dough until it’s smooth and soft.
  3. Add a dash of oil to the dough and sides of the bowl. Cover and let it stand for 3-4 hours. You will see it rise by then.
  4. Continue to knead the dough again and until smooth, you can make around 6-8 balls.

(to cook the naan bread)

  1. Preheat the oven for at least 20-30 minutes for the best results, on 210 C / 410 F. In the meantime, use a rolling pin to roll the dough ball into a flat base. 
  2. Before you place these in the oven, add a splash of water on the top side of the naan, and place that side down in the oven tray or cast iron pan. 
  3. This should only take 3-4 minutes so keep a eye close eye and remove accordingly.

Note – instead of the oven, you can also use the hob by following the same instructions. Allow your pan to preheat for a few minutes however, and it should literally take 2-3 minutes.
