Amy mentioned serving naan with the Honey Curry Chicken she posted yesterday. After refusing to pay $3 for 2 pieces at the grocery store a few months ago, I came across this recipe and it is fantastic. Eat it plain, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt, or drizzle honey on it for a sweet treat!
1/2 cup warm water
2 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 large egg
melted butter or oil, for frying
In a large bowl, stir together the water, yeast and sugar and let stand for 5 minutes, or until foamy.
Stir in the flour, salt, oil, yogurt and egg and stir, then knead until you have a soft, pliable dough. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to double in size (about 1 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 oil (I use our griddle and brush it with melted butter -- that way I can make a few at a time) 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).
