Number of Servings: 17


    1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
    1 cup warm water
    1/4 cup white sugar
    3 tablespoons milk
    1 egg, beaten
    2 teaspoons salt
    4 1/2 cups bread flour
    2 teaspoons minced garlic (optional)
    1/4 cup butter, melted


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 to 8 minutes 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. Let it rise 1 hour, until the dough has doubled in volume.
Punch down dough, and knead in garlic.
Pinch off small handfuls of dough about the size of a golf ball. Roll into balls, and place on a tray. Cover with a towel, and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
During the second rising, preheat grill or griddle to high heat.
roll one ball of dough out into a thin circle. Lightly oil griddle. Place dough on griddlel, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until puffy and lightly browned. Brush uncooked side with butter, and turn over. Brush cooked side with butter, and cook until browned, another 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill, and continue the process until all the naan has been prepared

  • Spectacular but I had to make some changes. I discovered I was out of eggs (nephew ate them). I looked up substitutes for eggs when making bread & found this:
    1 tsp. baking powder, 1 Tbl. water, 1 Tbl. vinegar=1 egg
    I used the above instead of the egg & only used 4 cups of bread flour. Yum!
