Total Time: 40 min
Preparation Time: 40 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
What all you need in kitchen:
Flour – 4 cups
Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
Salt – 1 teaspoon
Plain low-fat yogurt – 2 cups
Do the following:
- Blend the flour, the baking powder and the salt together.
- Keep stirring in the yogurt till the dough becomes hard enough for a spoon, then mix it in a bowl till it holds together well, adding more flour if necessary.
- Turn it out upon a floured surface and continue kneading for about 5 minutes till the dough feels smooth and elastic.
- Make a bowl out of dough and place it in an oiled bowl, covered with a towel, to rest for an hour or longer.
- Now, cut the ball into 10 equal pieces. Form each into a ball and press the balls flat into round discs.
- Heat a large frying pan, essentially a non-stick one
- Heat your oven to about 500 and keep the broiler on
- Take 1 piece of dough at a time and roll it out on a floured surface till it is about 8-10 inches across and less than 1/4 inch thick.
- Lay it on a hot griddle and cook it over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
- It will turn fluffy from all sides, and there will be some blackish-brown spots on the bottom.
- Slide a spatula under the naan and transfer it to the oven, directly onto the rack, for a minute or two, just till it finishes puffing up into a balloon and begins to color lightly on top.
- Take out naan from the oven and brush it lightly with melted butter if you like.
- Continue this way with all the dough, collecting the bread pieces into a napkin-lined basket.
- Serve the breads hot, fresh from the oven, or let them cool and then, wrap them up.
- To heat again, wrap them in aluminum foil, in packets of 4 – 5 breads and put them in a 400-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
