Naan Bread

I have been using this recipe for years & love it. It is always gone when I make it & even can be frozen in dough form. It does take a little effort to make, but when I make a big batch & freeze bags of dough balls, it is considerably easier to make on a regular basis

  • 2 1/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast (1 package)
  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 1 Egg – beaten
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 4 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour (Plain Flour)
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Butter – melted

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Let it stand for about 10 minutes, until frothy

Stir in the sugar, milk, egg, salt & enough flour to make a soft dough & knead for 6-8 minutes on a lightly floured surface, or until smooth

Place the dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth & allow to rise for 1 hour, until the dough has doubled in volume

Punch down the dough & knead in the garlic. Pinch off small handfuls of dough, about the size of golf balls. Roll into balls, & place on a try. Cover with a towel & allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes

During the second rising, preheat a frying pan on a medium heat. Roll out a ball of dough into a THIN circle. Lightly oil the pan & fry the thin dough circle until puffy & lightly browned

Brush the uncooked side with melted butter (I add garlic powder to my melted butter). Turn over & cook the other side the same brushing the cooked side with butter

Remove & continue the process until all the naan has been prepared

If you decide to freeze some of the naan dough, when it has been removed from the freezer & thawed, you will need to add a little oil to the naan before you roll it out so that it doesn’t stick to the work surface
