I really love baking quick easy breads, Naan is one of my favorites and the kids love to help as well !
1 hour 30 minutes
YIELD: 8 PIECES
1/2 cup warm water
1 Packet of active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more if needed
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
some oil, for greasing the skillet
3 tablespoons melted butter
In a small bowl, add the sugar, warm water, and yeast together. Stir to combine well and let sit about 5 minutes. You will know your yeast is active because the mixture will be foamy. Add the flour to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Add the yeast mixture, yoghurt, salt and oil, knead the dough in the mixer on low speed until the surface becomes smooth and shiny, about 10 minutes. If the dough is very sticky add 2 tablespoons of flour at a time until it comes together and pulls away from the side. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm place The dough should double in size, about 1 hour.
Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll the dough to a 8” circle using a rolling spin.
Heat up a skillet (cast-iron is my favorite ) over high heat and lightly grease the surface with some oil to avoid the dough from sticking to the skillet. Place the dough on the skillet. When it puffs up and bubbles and burnt spots appear, flip it over and cook the other side. Repeat the same until all dough are done.
Brush the naan with the melted butter, serve warm.
