Gluten-Free Naan / Roti (Indian Flat Bread) - Version #1

"I haven't tried this but it looks promising. This recipe is adapted from the original which was created by Arvinder Malhotra and published on Celiac.com. When I try it, I will probably post a new version with adjustments (and convert it into American measurement units)."

directions

  • In a bowl mix tepid milk with 1 teaspoon sugar and the yeast, then sit bowl in warm place for 4-5 minutes.
  • Sift the flours, Xanthan gum, salt, baking powder into a bowl or food mixer. Add remaining sugar, oil, yogurt, egg and mix until smooth.
  • Preheat oven to the highest setting. Make dough into 6 equal sized balls. Roll out balls into a tear shape that is ¼ inch thick (use rice flour if necessary to prevent sticking).
  • Preheat a heavy baking tray in oven. Remove tray and put the naan on it. Return to the oven for 3 minutes or until the naan puffs up and turns light brown. Place tray under the broiler 30 seconds to 1 minute for extra browning.
  • Brush with ghee or olive oil before serving.

    This is amazing! It is so nice to have really good gluten free bread ready in only minutes. I placed my pizza stone in the oven to preheat while the oven preheated. The only substitution was to use almond milk in place of the whole milk. The dough was easy to handle with lightly floured hands. It was rolled out on parchment paper with a lightly floured rolling pin. The bread was allowed to brown on one side and then flipped to cook on the other. My yield was 8 nice size naan. This is something I will be making again and again. Thanks much for posting.
