I made some indian food (cauliflower tiki masala from Isa’s new cookbook…YUM), and I couldnt find any naan at the grocery store, SO I made my own! It was pretty easy. I started the dough right before I started prepping the rest of dinner. It takes 40 minutes to rise, so I was able to get everything prepped and in the oven, just in time to start making the naan while everything baked. I was pretty impressed at how these turned out too. Totally made the meal!
Found the recipe here.
- 1 1⁄2cups warm water
- 2teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1teaspoon salt
- 3cups flour, plus a few tbsp for workspace
- Combine warm water and yeast in a bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes until foamy.
- Add salt and flour. Mix thoroughly. Knead dough on a floured workspace about 20 times and form into a tight ball. Put dough in a well oiled bowl and cover with a damp towel.
- Put in a warm place to rise for 30-45 minutes. Dough won’t rise much, but it doesn’t need to.
- Turn dough out onto a floured workspace. Divide dough into 8 pieces and roll out with a rolling pin to about 1/8″ thick.
- Grill naan pieces on a grill or electric griddle. In a pinch, a frying pan sprayed with some nonstick cooking spray will work. Grill for 1-2 minutes on each side.
- This recipe yields a very soft, chewy naan.
