A traditional naan recipe adapted for the Bread Machine.
- 2⁄3 cup warm skim milk
- 2 teaspoons melted butter
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 lb all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2⁄3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- In the mixing bowl of your bread machine, combine warm milk (about 80F) with yeast, butter and half of the sugar- set aside for 5 minutes.
- On a piece of waxed paper sift together flour, salt and baking powder.
- Add to bread machine bowl.
- Add olive oil, second half of sugar, yogurt and egg.
- Set the bread machine to the dough setting and let it run through the cycle.
- When the bread machine has almost finished the dough cycle, pre-heat your oven to 500 degrees F.
- If you have a baking stone, place it in the top rack of the oven to preheat as well.
- Take dough out and separate it into six equal sections.
- Using a rolling pin or your hands, flatten dough out to ovals about 1/3 inch thick.
- When oven has pre-heated, place rounds on pre-heated stone or heavy baking sheet.
- Bake on top shelf of the oven for 90 seconds; the naan should start to puff.
- Switch the oven from bake to broil for an additional minute or until the top starts to brown.
- When brown on top, remove from oven and cover with a towel while you finish baking the remaining loaves.
- You can brush the naan with butter before serving if desired.
I had to register here at Food.com just so I could rate this recipe!! I've looked and looked for a great tasting, easy recipe to make Indian bread and I have finally found it. They came out of oven fluffy and soft. My family loved them with the vegetable curry I made and were talking about how they can be used for sandwiches as well. Will definitely be making these over and over again!! (oops! I forgot to mention that I weighed my flour using 11 oz. of white unbleached and 5 oz of whole wheat to make it healthier).
I made this on my BBQ grill and it was great. I used the recommended ingredients but did the prep a little different. Since my bread machine has a warming cycle, I layered all the wet ingredients first then the dry ingredients with the yeast on the very top. Once it was done I made the ovals as directed and here is the twist. I put an extra heavy cookie sheet on my BBQ grill heated it up to 500 degrees and cooked the bread on the cookie sheet (with the cover closed). I flipped it over for a few seconds at the end to brown the top. It tasted exactly like the real thing. Thanks for the recipe.
Good recipe, naan are pretty versatile, I used leftovers as crusts for my kids to make their own pizzas. They store well in a ziploc in the fridge. I used about 3 1/2 - 4 cups flour, just started with 3 and added more after a few minutes in the machine. I did brush a few with melted butter after baking and sprinkled with garlic salt.
