Naan is for everything
1/2 cup warm water
2 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
^ Let these ingredients sit for a minute or two so they can activate.
2 1/2 cups Bread flour (It works better than regular)
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 large egg
Select 'dough setting'. It will knead the dough and then warm the unit to allow it to rise. After my dough had risen, I punched it down and let it rise a second time. This process takes about an hour to rise, but You could leave it all day in the breadmaker if you wanted.
*If you don't have a breadmaker-
In a large bowl, stir together the water, yeast and sugar and let stand for 5 minutes, until foamy.
Stir in the flour, salt, oil, yogurt and egg and stir.
Knead until you have a soft, pliable dough.
Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled in size- about an hour.
Divide the dough into 8 pieces- easiest with a pizza cutter.
This worked best for me to flatten it out with my palms first and then roll it with the rolling pin as thin as I could.
Cook each piece on a hot skillet or griddle drizzled with olive oil.
Makes 8 Naan.
I served with Cinnamon HoneyButter.
I derived the recipe from here for this Naan.
