How to make it

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • Let stand about 10 minutes, until frothy.
  • meanwhile melt butter and add garlic set aside for grilling.
  • to the yeast mix stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes on a lightly floured surface, or until smooth. Place dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set aside to rise.
  • Let it rise 1 hour, until the dough has doubled in volume.
  • Punch down dough,
  • knead dough again
  • Pinch off small handfuls of dough about the size of a golf ball.
  • Roll into balls, and place on a tray. Cover with a towel, and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • During the second rising, preheat grill to high heat.
  • roll one ball of dough out into a thin circle.
  • Lightly oil grill.
  • brush with garlic butter
  • Place dough on grill, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until puffy and lightly browned.
  • turn over and brush with garlic butter
  • cook until browned, another 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill,
  • and continue the process until all the naan has been prepared.
  • makes about 14 naans

    I am so sick of reading about how people "can't wait to make this." These comments are supposed to be about people who have already tried it and are giving their opinions! Waste of my time!

    Homemade bread is almost always better than what you get served. I've never seen it with sugar and egg, but they should be delicious. Must. Try. Soon.

    Thanks for your friendly comment on the leftover chicken etc., which would probably be good served with naan.

    I took an Indian cooking class and our teacher inspired me to try many new flavors and dishes, which we love. But naan...I love it with everything! Thanks for the recipe.
