Naan

Naan is great for many uses. You could use them for sandwiches, pizza or just as a side for your indian dishes!


Naan
Recipe from Indiamarks {Sugar & Spice}

1 1/2 teaspoons active-dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoon ghee
3 tablespoons yogurt
garlic, chopped
cilantro, chopped
  
  • Add the yeast and sugar to the water and stir until the yeast is dissolved. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the flour and salt. To this add the yeast mixture, yogurt and 3 tablespoons of ghee.
  • Using your fingertips mix into a soft dough. Once mixed, flour a clean, flat surface and knead the dough until it is smooth.
  • Grease a large bowl with oil and put the dough into it. Cover and let rest for about 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in size. 
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal rolls and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Lightly flour the surface and roll out each ball until you have a circle, 7-8 inches in diameter.
  • Cook the naan in the oven or on the grill at 400-500 degrees. Cook on each side until bubbles start to form. Flip over and repeat.
  • Brush each naan with ghee and sprinkle with garlic and cilantro.
