Garlic Naan Bread

Naan is a traditional Indian sourdough bread that is served to accompany meat and fish dishes, especially when they are rich in seasoning. By custom it is cooked in a tandoori clay oven, but it can also be prepared at home using just a few ingredients. This recipe flavors the Naan dough with garlic, and uses with fresh garlic and herb as a topping, a very aromatic bread to enjoy. Chef Ravi

The dough:

Garlic Sauce

Instructions
 

The dough:

  • Combine the water, sugar and yeast together. Let sit 10 minutes or until the mixture begins to bubble on top.
  • Add in the milk, yogurt, oil, minced garlic, flour baking powder and salt. With your hands, mix until the dough comes together.
  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Use floured hands to knead the dough until smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Lightly grease the same mixing bowl with a small spray of cooking oil. Transfer dough to the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rest at room temperature about 1-2 hours until doubled in size.
  • Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Grease skillet all over with 1/2 teaspoon of the extra oil.
  • Place one piece of the naan on the oiled hot skillet and cook until bubbles form on top, about 1-2 minutes. While cooking, brush the top with a little oil.
  • Flip over and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until large golden spots appear on the bottom.
  • Remove from the skillet and wrap in a clean kitchen towel. Repeat with the remaining naan (keep them wrapped in a towel while you work).

Garlic sauce:

  • Combine oil and minced garlic together in a bowl. Brush each naan with the garlic sauce and top with the fresh herb.
