Yummy Indian naan bread .. Goes great with curries etc .. very easy to make since the bread machine does all the work! Try adding spices, or use whole wheat flour instead of white ..

This was amazing! I love the Naan I get at the local Indian place, but to me this was just as good. I used greek yogurt, and as a result, I needed to add a couple of tablespoons of water in the first few minutes of mixing. I also cut the recipe in half, which gave me 4 beautiful pieces of bread. The texture was perfect- light and fluffy, with just a little chew. Just to be different, I added a couple cloves of minced garlic, and loved the result. This will definitely be a go-to for the next Indian meal I make.

Directions

  1. Add ingredients to the bread pan according to the manufacturer's directions.
  2. Set Cycle: dough; Loaf size: 2 lb.
  3. After about 5 minutes, check the dough; add a tablespoon of water at a time if too dry, or a tablespoon of flour at a time if too wet.
  4. Preheat oven to 450F, put 2 baking sheets in to heat for 10 minutes (this will help the naan to puff up and brown).
  5. When dough cycle is done, turn dough onto a floured surface and punch down; Divide into 8 pieces.
  6. Working one at a time, with the other pieces covered, roll dough out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.

  8. Brown tops under the broiler, then wrap in a towel to keep warm while cooking the remaining naan.
  9. These freeze very well.
