Garlic Naan


Active Dry Yeast 1 (.25 ounce) package

Naan is a delicious flat bread used alongside many Indian dishes. Below is an easy way to make naan at home.

In a large bowl, mix the yeast with the honey and let stand for about 10 minutes.

When the warm water reaches about 110 degrees F, pour into yeast & honey mix.

Mix flour, garlic, salt in a food processor. Pulse a couple of times to mix real quick.

Stir together the milk and egg, then pour in with the yeast/honey/water mixture.

While the processor is on, pour liquid mixture into the dry mixture. And that’s it! In about 30 seconds you’ll have some dough.

Place the dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set aside to rise for 1 hour. The dough should double in volume.

Punch down dough. 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 for 30 minutes.

Preheat grill to high heat.

Roll one ball of dough out into a thin circle. Lightly oil grill. Place dough on grill and cook for 2 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 minutes.

Remove from grill, and continue the process until all naan has been prepared.
