Naan Bread

Yield: 8 naan rounds
Prep 30 mins Rise 1 hr Bake 475°F 3 mins Stand 25 mins
Naan Bread
Ingredients
  • 1/3  cup  warm milk (100 degree F to 110 degree F)
  • 2  teaspoons  sugar
  • 1  package  active dry yeast
  • 1/2  cup  plain yogurt
  • 3  tablespoons  purchased ghee* or clarified butter**
  • 1  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 2  cups  all-purpose flour
Directions

1. In a medium bowl combine the milk, sugar, and yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes or until foamy. Add yogurt, ghee, salt, and baking powder. Add flour and stir until mixture forms a ball.

2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 4 to 5 minutes or until dough is smooth. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until dough is doubled in size.

3. Determine how many 6-inch rounds will fit on your baking stone at one time. Place baking stone on the lowest rack in the oven. Preheat oven to 475 degree F. Divide dough into 8 pieces; shape into balls. Cover balls with plastic wrap and let stand for 20 minutes.

4. On a lightly floured surface, roll enough balls of dough to fit onto baking stone into 6-inch circles. Place dough circles on hot baking stone. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes or until brown. Turn circles over. Bake for 1 to 2 minutes more or until brown and slightly puffed. Remove naan from oven and wrap in foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining dough. Serve hot. Makes 8 naan rounds.
