I’ve recently discovered how easy it is to make naan bread! I do mine on my big electric skillet and double this recipe coz it goes FAST at my house! (The recipe isn’t one I created, but it’s the one I use.)
1 pkg active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp milk
1 beaten egg
2 tsp salt
4 1/2 cups flour
1/4 c melted butter
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes, until frothy. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 6-8 min on a lightly floured surface, or until smooth. Place dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set aside to rise for approximately one hour, until the dough has doubled in volume.
Punch down dough, and knead briefly. Pinch off tennis ball sized balls of dough, place on greased cookie sheet. Cover with a towel and allow to rise for about 30 min.
Preheat skillet or grill to med-high temp. Roll out dough into thin circle and place on lightly oiled skillet. Cook for 2-3 min, until puffy and browned. Brush uncooked side with melted butter and turn over. Brush cooked side with butter. Allow to cook another 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from skillet, and continue the process until all the bread has been prepared.
This is an excellent side for Indian food, soup, stew… Etc. It’s also delicious with honey or cinnamon sugar.
