An easy and tasty authentic Indian bread. Make this easy Naan in your food processor.
1/2 cup warm water
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup olive oil + more for frying
2 cups all-purpose flour (277 grams)
1 tsp salt
- Place first three ingredients in a small bowl and set aside until foamy, about 10 minutes.
- In another small bowl add oil and egg, beat lightly to emulsify the egg.
- In a food processor add flour and salt, pulse to blend salt.
- Add yeast water when ready at a slow stream while blending.
- Add the oil and egg mixture in the same manner, slowly until the dough comes apart from the side. Stop adding the oil mixture at this point. Blend for another 30 seconds.
- Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, kneading until smooth. Place in a large bowl that has been oiled with cooking spray or oil, flip and cover with plastic. Place in a warm place to rise, until double in size, about 1 hour.
- Roll out dough onto floured surface.
- Divide into 8 pieces evenly and keep under a kitchen towel or plastic to keep from drying out.
- Preheat an oiled skillet over medium heat.
- Take each dough and roll out into a circle, about 1/4 inch thick.
- Cook in skillet, flipping when golden brown on one side, cook until other side is done. Repeat with remaining dough.
- Brush with melted butter or olive oil (optional)
I like to weigh my flour with baked goods. I live at high altitude and flour can get packed down so my recipes may not turn out like yours. Weighing is the most accurate method with flour.
