naan


Oh, naan. How I love you. How my husband loves you! We make naan a lot in this house... every time we make Indian food, or we use it to make mini "pizza" or tostadas with hummus, greens, olives, red peppers... whatever we feel like. 

Even though my luck with yeast breads is still a little hit and miss, naan has come out every time!

Naan 
from sheena!

1/2 cup warm water
2 t. yeast
1 t. sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 t. salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup plain yogurt 
1 egg

Mix water, yeast and sugar. Let sit for 5 minutes until foamy. Add remaining ingredients. Knead until dough is soft and pliable. Cover and let rise until doubled, about an hour. Divide dough into 8 pieces and roll out into circles on floured surface. Cook (like pancakes!) on a hot griddle drizzled with olive oil. Serve warm.
