Grilled Naan Bread

Grilled Naan Bread

2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar
4 Tbsp. Milk
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. salt
4 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. minced garlic (optional)
1/4 cup butter or olive oil (optional)

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes until frothy. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt and flour. Knead for 6-8 minutes or until smooth. Place dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth and set aside to rise for 1 hour (or until doubled).

Punch down dough and knead in garlic (optional). Divide dough into 12 balls. Place on a tray and cover with a damp cloth for 30 minutes. 

During the second rise preheat the grill.

Roll out each dough ball into a thin circle. Lightly oil grill. Place dough on grill and cook for 2 minutes until puffy and lightly browned. Turn over and cook for another 2 minutes until both sides are lightly browned. Optional: Brush with butter/olive oil after cooking.

Keep in foil wrap until ready to serve.

During the cold & rainy months of the year I make this in my oven. Preheat oven to 350 F and follow the same cooking directions with the rack in the middle of your oven. 

This Naan Bread is delicious with The Best Butter Chicken Ever!
