naan

Oh my heavens this is just so good and super easy. I was having a mini heart attack about frying bread, so I used just a small amount of butter for each piece.  We had this tonight with tikka masala.  SO SO GOOD.

Recipe from lizzywrites

Naan
1/2 cup warm water
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 large egg
clarified butter, for frying

In a large bowl, stir together the water, yeast and sugar and let stand for 5 minutes, until foamy. Stir in the flour, salt, oil, yogurt and egg and stir. Knead until you have a soft, pliable dough. Cover with a tea towel and let rise until doubled in size; about an hour.
Divide the dough into 6 – 8 pieces and on a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece into a thin circle or oval. Cook each naan in a nice hot skillet drizzled with clarified butter until blistered and cooked, flipping as necessary. When the surface has big blisters and is golden on the bottom, flip it over and cook until golden on the other side. Spread with butter before serving and add chopped garlic and herbs, if desired.
