Naan is for everything

Put in the breadmaker in this order:

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.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece into a thin circle or oval. 

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.

When the surface has big blisters and is golden on the bottom, flip it over and cook until golden on the other side.

Makes 8 Naan.

I served with Cinnamon HoneyButter.

I derived the recipe from here for this Naan.
