I love Indian food so much!  Even though naan is getting more and more easy to find at the grocery store, I always make my own.  It's so fragrant and soft and yummy.  This recipe is adapted from one by Madhur Jaffrey. 



Here are the ingredients:
2/3 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
2 tsp. sugar
1 package dry yeast
3 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. canola oil
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1 beaten egg



Start by combining the warm milk, yeast and 1 tsp. of the sugar.  Set aside for a few minutes until it becomes frothy then add to the remaining ingredients and mix together.  Knead it for 10 minutes and put in a lightly oiled bowl.  Cover and let sit to rise for an hour.


Here's what it looks like after rising.  At this point, you should preheat your oven to 500 degrees F.


Turn it out onto a floured surface and cut it into as many naans as you like.  This recipe makes 6 large or 12 small breads.


Roll them to about 1/4 inch thick.


Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.  They go into your 500 degree oven for just 3 minutes. 



Look closely, you'll see they have puffed up a bit.  Switch your oven from bake to broil.  Once your broiler is hot, put your cookie sheet back in the oven on the highest rack for just 30 seconds to brown.  Watch them carefully!


Perfect!

They look delicious. I sometimes make naan bread but I have never tried them with yoghurt in the dough. I shall try it next time.
Since you have your own farm, you probably could make fabulous cheese naans.

Thanks for the kind comments.  Smiley  I'm going to have to look into cheese naans, yoopidou.  I am milking early this year and have goat cheese in the fridge.
