Indian food is one of my most favorite things. It is healthy and healing. When I was a kid growing up in Germany one of my babysitters would make naan from scratch everyday. I enjoyed watching her cook, but I enjoyed eating them even more. 

Ingredients list:


1 yeast packet

3/4 cup of luke warm water (use the baby bottle wrist method to ensure the water is not to hot or to cold)

2 tsp of sugar

2 tbsp of plain yogurt

1 tsp of course salt 

2 1/4 cup of flour

1/2 stick of butter and 1 tsp of salt for grilling the naan

2 tbsp of veg oil for grilling



In a small bowl mix water, yeast and sugar. Allow the mixture to sit and bubble for 10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl place remaining ingredients. Pour in yeast mixture and mix with your hands until a ball is formed. You may need a little more flour to keep the dough from sticking to your hands. Kneed in the bowl for 10 minutes until the dough is soft and fluffy. Coat dough with a little oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a towel. Allow the dough to raise in a warm place for an hour. 

Once an hour has passed. Prep a flat griddle by wiping it with oil. Heat to the highest temperature possible. Oil the top of a wooden board. Oil your rolling pin. Divide dough evenly into handful sizes balls. Roll out into a tear drop shape. With your hands wipe one side of the dough with water. Place the dough water side down onto the hot griddle. Wait a few minutes and flip. Rub the grilled side of the bread with butter and sprinkle with course sea salt. Repeat until all the dough as been used. Serve with Curry or Biblical dinner.
