I’ve tried several different naan recipes, and this one is my absolute favorite! It always comes out soft and perfect and I love that it uses yogurt! Naan is easy to make and goes great with any curry or Indian dish! It’s our favorite accompaniment to homemade Chicken Tikka Masala!
2 tsp. yeast
4 Tbs. warm milk
2 tsp. sugar
4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. ghee (or substitute melted butter)
1 egg- beaten
2/3 cup plain yogurt (Greek or regular)
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup softened butter + 2 tsp garlic powder, mixed
Mix the yeast, milk and sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl mix the flour and baking powder. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture, ghee (or butter), yogurt, milk, and egg. Mix and knead until well blended and dough is smooth.
Place dough in a greased bowl, cover with a heavy cloth or plastic wrap and place in warm place to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
When dough has risen, pinch off a small piece, about the size of a racketball.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a slipper shape, about 1/4 in. thick.
Place dough on a greased backing sheet. brush with garlic butter and season with parsley.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
