Recipe Ingredients for Naan, Indian Cooking, Madhur Jaffrey

5 oz milk, hot
2 tsp granulated sugar
2 tsp dried active yeast
3 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbs vegetable oil
5 oz plain yogurt, lightly beaten
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Recipe Directions for Naan, Indian Cooking, Madhur Jaffrey

  1. Put the milk in a bowl. Add 1 tsp of the sugar and the yeast. Stir to mix. Set aside for 15-20 minutes or until the yeast has dissolved and the mixture is frothy.

  2. Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the remaining 1 tsp sugar, the yeast mixture, 2 tbs vegetable oil and the yogurt and egg. Mix and form a ball of dough.

  3. Empty the ball of dough onto a clean work surface and knead it for 10 minutes or more, until it is smooth and satiny. Form into a ball. Pour about 1/4 teaspoon oil into a large bowl and roll the ball of dough in it. Cover the bowl with a piece of plastic wrap and set aside in a warm, draft-free place for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in bulk.

  4. Preheat your oven to the highest temperature. Put the heaviest baking pan you own to heat in the oven. Preheat your broiler.

  5. Punch down the dough and knead it again. Divide into 6 equal balls. Keep 5 of them covered while you work on the 6th. Roll this ball inot a tear-shaped naan, about 10 inches in length and about 5 inches at its widest. Remove the hot baking pan from the oven and slap the naan onto it. Put it immediately into the oven for 3 minutes. It should puff up. Now place the baking pan and naan under the broiler, about 3-4 inches away from the heat for about 30 seconds or until the top of the naan browns slightly. Wrap the naan in a clean dish towel. Make all the naans this way and serve hot.
