Naan bread is delicious Indian flat bread that is similar to a pita. It is eaten alone or with other dips and dishes. It is best eaten with curry dishes or stews.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 pinch baking powder
1 tablespoon dry yeast
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 cup warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt to taste
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Dissolve the yeast in warm water and let it stand for 2 minutes.
While waiting for the yeast, combine the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, olive oil and yogurt in a bowl. Mix well until all the ingredients are well blended.
Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and knead for 5 minutes. The consistency should be sticky. Add more water if it is dry. Make a ball out of the dough and cover it with a cheese cloth. Let it rise for 4 hours.
Preheat the oven at 200F.
Knead the bread for 2 minutes and divide it into 6 parts. Roll the parts out into circles or squares, depending on what you want.
Sprinkle garlic on the rolled out dough.
Place the dough on a hot stone plate and cook until the edges are brown. If you do not have a stone plate, you can use a lined baking tray. Bake it for 15-20 minutes or until the edges turn brown.
Butter the bread before serving. Serve warm in a bread basket.
