    Lebanese Niso's Note:

    This is a really good and fairly simple recipe for naan. I pair it along side every indian dish. I found this recipe when searching google for a true naan recipe.. I think I found it on allrecipes.com. Since it's so good, I thought I'd share it with every other RecipeZaar member.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    naan pi ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Note: the cook time does not include rising time. This is a pretty time consuming recipe, but it's well worth it!
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes, until frothy. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes on a lightly floured surface, or until smooth. Place dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set aside to rise. Let it rise 1 hour, until the dough has doubled in volume.
    3. 3
      Punch down dough, and knead in garlic (you can put more, less or no garlic depending on your taste). Pinch off small handfuls of dough about the size of a golf ball. Roll into balls, and place on a tray. Cover with a towel, and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      During the second rising, preheat the grill (or skillet) to high heat. A grill would be best, but if you don't have a grill ready to use, you can use a skillet, they just won't come out as pretty.
    5. 5
      At grill side, roll one ball of dough out into a thin circle. Lightly oil grill. Place dough on grill, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until puffy and lightly browned. Brush uncooked side with butter, and turn over. Brush cooked side with butter, and cook until browned, another 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill, and continue the process until all the naan has been prepared.

      These are so good. I have made them many time. These are so much better than the store bought, and much less expensive.

      *Almost* exactly like the naan at our favorite Indian restaurant. It took a few tries to get the hang of cooking these on a non stick skillet. I made them extremely thin and that seemed to work best. These would definitely be good for a Mexican gordita as another poster suggested.
