Serves: 8-9
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2+1/4 tsp yeast
  • ½ cup warm milk (any fat content)
  • 4-5 tbsp yogurt
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Garlic paste for brushing (optional)
  • Butter for brushing
  1. In a bowl, mix flour with salt and sugar. Warm half a cup of milk and add yeast to it. Let it sit for 5 mins. Add this milk to flour mix and mix. Add yogurt and oil. Mix it all up till it all comes together. Transfer it to a deep bowl as it will become 2-3 times of its size. Cover it and keep it in a warm place for 3-4 hours.
  2. Before rolling, kneed the flour for few minutes and use flour if too sticky. Break it into small balls. Sprinkle the working surface with flour and roll them in elongated shapes or as desired. Brush one side with water. Take a heavy bottom skillet with a lid. On nicely warm skillet surface, place the wet side and cover. Let it cook for like 30-40 seconds and then flip. Cover and let it cook for 40 seconds more. See if it has brown spots which shows that it is cooked but not burnt. Smear with butter. You can smear with garlic paste as well to have garlic flavored naan.
