Naan /Indian bread


3 cups All purpose flour,
1 tsp yeast,
1tsp sugar,
1/2 tsp salt,
1 tbsp yogurt,
1 cup milk,
1egg and
1 tsp oil.

In a bowl, mix the yeast with some warm water. Stir in the sugar and salt and leave it ina warm place for 5-10 minutes, till the yeast becomes frothy. Add the milk, yogurt, 1 beaten egg and the oil to this and mix well.
Take the flour in another big bowl and add the above mixture to make a very soft and sticky dough. Now add 1/2 tsp oil on top and cover the dough with a damp kitchen towel and rest it for 15 to 20 minutes.
After 15-20 minutes, make medium sized balls with the dough, and place them on a flat sheet , covering them with a damp towel again and rest it for another 20 monutes. Pre-heat the oven to highest temperature or on broil mode. Now roll the balls into long oval shape. Place them on a greased baking tray and bake them in the Oven for 2-3 minutes / until cooked. After taking it out from the oven, apply butter on top. Serve hot with any curry/ gravy

The Naan should not not be rolled out very thinly, because they will become very crispy.
For a variation, chopped garlic can be sprinkled on the Naan, before putting it in the oven.

We love Naan!! We have eaten at Indian restaurants a couple times and the flavors are so unusual for us we don't always enjoy what we get but we love the Naan! My boys will be so excited I found a recipe for Naan!
