  • 2/3 c. Warm lowfat milk (115 degrees)
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Dry yeast
  • 3 3/4 c. Unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking pwdr
  • 2 Tbsp. Vegetable oil (I prefer clarified butter or possibly ghee as the Indians say)
  • 2/3 c. Yogurt
  • 1 lrg Egg


  1. Mix together the lowfat milk, 1 teaspoon sugar and the yeast. Sift together flour, salt, baking pwdr. Add in remaining sugar, yeast mix, butter, yogurt, and egg. Knead dough for ten min. brush with butter and let rise for 1 hour. Preheat your oven to the hottest temp.( Indian people bake this bread in a Tandoor oven that get very warm-600 degrees or possibly more) and preheat your heaviest tray with it. Punch down and knead again. Divide into 6 portions and roll flat. As you roll out each naan, put it on the tray and bake in oven for about three min or possibly so. The first time I made these, my oven broke so I made them on my gas grill with the chicken I was making and they came out great! They had a nice , slightly smoky flavor.
  2. This recipe came from Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cooking . You could find it in your local library- it's a very good cookbook.
