NAAN


Naan is a popular Indian flat bread cooked using 'tandoor' or clay oven. It is easily obtainable from North Indian restaurant almost all countries around the world.

It is made using plain flour, dry yeast and yogurt then left to ferment for several hours before baking them.

However, you could prepare your own using the oven. But now I'm using flat pan to cook them. In fact you can make very good naan from white bread dough or pizza recipe. Besides spicy gravy, you can also serve them with soups or dips.

NAAN

2 C all purpose flour
1 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 T oil
3 T yogurt
3/4 C warm water
extra flour for rolling
butter to apply on top

METHOD

* Combine yeast, sugar and warm water in a small bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes until frothy.

* In a mixing bowl, put in flour, salt, oil, yogurt and yeast mixture, mix and forms into pliable dough.

* Keep for 1-2 hours or until double in a greased and covered bowl.

* Punch down the dough, divide into 6 balls. Roll out each ball on lightly floured board and shape into oval. Complete the rest of the dough.

* Heat the flat pan, fry each of the naan until both side had brown spots on top.

* Immediately after frying, apply the butter on top.

* Serve hot with your favorite gravy.

Oh! This looks so good! I'll have to try it out. I don't suppose you have an easy recipe for chicken korma while we're at it? They changed chefs at my favorite Indian restaurant in town, and it just isn't the same. I keep thinking I need to try to make it myself, although I've never made any Indian food. Ha!

Jocelyn...Thanks for visiting dear, don't worry even 1st timer is highly recommended to try since this is quite similar to bread making only the shape differs and it is pan fried...
