Indian Garlic Naan

We tried a garlic naan recipe and it also exceeded our expectations. We tried both baking and frying it and baking definitely worked out much better.

Here's the original recipe: http://www.chefdehome.com/Recipes/560/homemade-restaurant-style-indian-garlic-naan

Naan!!!





Ingredients:

2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
3 1/3 Cups  Flour
2.5 tbsp Canola Oil
1 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Garlic (paste - garlic cloves grated)

Toppings
minced garlic
Butter ­ Salted (melted, for brushing naan)

Directions:

1. Lukewarm 1 cup water, add sugar and yeast into the bowl of a stand mixer. Let it sit until foamy. (about 10 minutes.)
2. Add milk, 3 cups flour, garlic paste, oil, salt over bloomed yeast.
3. Mix all ingredients with a dough hook until thoroughly mixed. Add 1 tbsp remaining flour at a time until dough comes together.  Dough should not be very dry.
4. Cover with plastic wrap and then with clean kitchen towel. Leave to rise at warm place until double in size. (1­ to 2 hrs)
5. Preheat oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
6. Microwave and melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl for 15 secs, add chopped garlic and set
aside. Divide dough into 10 equal parts.
7. Roll each dough to a (about 6" wide ­ 10" long) oval shape (or round if you prefer).
8.  Place rolled naan on hot sheet tray, two or three, depending on size of sheet tray.
Bake for 4 minutes, remove, bush butter, put back in oven with broiler until brown - about 2 mins
