This naan is ready in 40 minutes! I like this recipe better than Easy Naan (Bread Machine). For best results, follow directions carefully. They seem long but aren't, I am just describing what I saw on TV exactly. UPDATE: Made this with sour cream instead of yogurt. Much, much better!!
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons honey
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons oil
- 1⁄3 cup yogurt
- 4 cups flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons yeast
- If the yogurt is cold, heat it for 15 seconds in the microwave.
- Add ingredients to your bread machine according to the manufacturer's directions.
- After 5 minutes, check your dough (see NOTE).
- After another 5 minutes (10 minutes total in the machine) take the dough out and divide into 8 pieces. Turn each piece in flour, cover, and allow to rest on a tray for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat your oven to 500°F.
- If you have a pizza stone, allow it to heat in the oven, otherwise, put heat-resistent metal cooling racks in the oven. Baking sheets do not work very well.
- With your fingers, flatten each piece of dough into a tear-drop shape, 1/2 inch thick.
- Moisten hands, then turn naan briefly in your hands to moisten it, and place it on the stone/rack; bake for about 4 minutes.
- Brown tops using the broiler.
- Wrap naan in a towel while you make the rest.
- NOTE: Dough should be somewhat sticky, and you might get a small amount stuck to your finger. It shouldn't stick to the pan at all. If it isn't sticky enough, add 1 T water. If it sticks to the pan, add 1 T flour, till you reach the correct consistency.
Made fantastic naan that was easy and authentic! It puffed up well in the oven and tasted even better fried on a non stick pan at a very hot temperature. I substituted 2 tsp sugar for the honey.
Best naan we've made yet! Used sour cream as suggested. I was a little skeptical of the technique but it worked great. My dough felt very workable and not very sticky after 5 mins and I left it as is. Softest naan we've made. Made it in a cast iron with coconut oil so I could get it very hot. I'm sure it will be wonderful on the grill once it gets warm enough to cook outside. Thanks for the keeper!
i am a bread idiot, and this was quick and easy. great recipe
