Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 g) packet dried yeast
  • 34 cup lukewarm water
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 14 cup yogurt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 14 cup melted ghee or 14 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 12 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or 3 tablespoons ghee to grease the bowl & brush the shaped naan bread
  • 3 tablespoons poppy seeds (optional) or 3 tablespoons cumin (optional)

Directions

  1. In a small warm bowl (not hot) pour in the 1/4 cup water and sprinkle on the yeast.
  2. Add 1 tsp sugar and stir, leave in a warm place for 10 minutes or until it starts to froth (if it does not froth your yeast is not working and start over check expiry date of the yeast)
  3. Stir yogurt until smooth and mix in the remaining 2 tbsp sugar, 1/2 cup water,egg, melted ghee and salt.
  4. Stir in the yeast mixture.
  5. In another bowl put in 2 cups flour, make a well in the center and pour in liquid (Use mixer with dough hook) mix until you have a smooth dough.
  6. Slowly add remaining flour until you have a stiff dough, use dough hook and knead for 7-8 minutes or knead by hand for 10-12 minutes until the dough is elastic& smooth.
  7. Form dough into a ball and place in a greased warm bowl, turn the dough over so the top is greased too, cover with a damp tea towel and keep in a warm place (I usually put it in the oven with my oven light on).
  8. When it has doubled in size punch down, divide into 8 balls and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  9. Pat dough into circles making them thinner in the centre and thicker around the rim.
  10. Pull one end outwards making a teardrop shape or pull both ends outward making an oblong shape.
  11. They should be about 8" long and about 3-4" wide.
  12. Brush with melted ghee (butter)
  13. Bake in 450f oven for about 10 minutes or until golden and puffed.
