HOMEMADE NAAN BREAD #homemadebread #naan #happilyunprocessed

Homemade soft Naan bread is easier to make than you may think and is simply irresistible when its warm and freshly made. It is perfect to scoop hummus, open it up for a pita pocket or tear it off to make a little wrap with some chicken.

Ingredients

To brush on top while cooking:

Instructions

  1. Add the yeast to the bowl of the Stand MIxer. Add the hot water to the bowl and give the yeast a quick stir to mix it in with the water. Then let it sit for 5-10 minute until the yeast is foamy.
  2. Add the sugar
  3. Turn the mixer onto low speed, and gradually add some of the flour, the yogurt, salt, baking powder, and egg and oil in increments alternating.  Increase the speed to medium-low, and continue mixing the dough for 2-3 minutes, adding more flour until the dough is smooth. (The dough will still be slightly sticky, but should form into a ball that pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl and this can take 5-10 minutes)
  4. Meanwhile pour a little olive oil into a large bowl and spread it up the sides using a paper towel or brush
  5. Remove dough from the mixing bowl and place it into the greased bowl in the shape of a ball. Cover it with a clean kitchen towel. Place in a warm location (I set mine in the oven quickly turned onto 100 and then turned off) and let it rise for 1 hour until the dough has nearly doubled in size.
  6. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a small saute pan over medium heat until melted. Add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Then remove butter from heat, strain out and discard the garlic, leaving the infused melted butter behind. Set aside but keep warm
  7. Once the dough is ready, transfer it to a floured work surface. Cut the dough into 8 separate pieces
  8. Roll each into a ball with your hands, then place on the floured surface and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a large circle until the dough is a little less than 1/4-inch thick
  9. Brush the dough lightly with the garlic-infused butter on both sides and place on a hot cast-iron skillet or heavy saute pan over medium-high heat
  10. Cook for 1 minute, or until the dough begins to bubble and the bottom turns lightly golden. Flip the dough and cook on the second side for 30-60 seconds
  11. Transfer it to a plate and cover it with a towel so it doesn’t dry out
  12. Continue until all the dough is cooked
