I haven’t posted in a week!!! I’ve been out of town for almost two weeks visiting with family. It has been so much fun but has left little time for me to blog (lots of food has been made though, especially with my mom). I’m so excited to share what we have been up to (gardening, cooking, preparing for a wedding, Carly’s birthday party…) but this repost of Naan with new photos will have to do. Naan is a soft Indian flat bread. I almost always make it to go along side Chicken Tikka Masala recipe. It tastes great with garlic salt or just plain. My husband prefers it plain so he can put butter and honey on it. Recently I have been using the leftovers for quick and easy flat bread pizza (recipe coming soon!).
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 1/2- 4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- garlic salt, optional
- Heat milk in the microwave until warm (105-110 degrees F). Mix yeast and sugar in with milk and allow it to sit for 5 minutes until foamy. Mix in salt and then add flour, a little at a time, to form a soft dough. Empty dough onto floured counter and knead about 30 times until smooth and elastic, adding flour as needed.
- Place dough in a large greased bowl and allow to rise for 1 hour.
- Preheat griddle to or skillet to medium-high heat (about 375 degrees F).
- Divide dough into 12 equal pieces and then roll out to be a little thinner than a pancake.
- Place 2-3 pieces on griddle and flip after 1-2 minutes (or until dough bubbles and underside is browned). Brush the cooked side with butter while the other side cooks for 1 more minute. Remove from griddle and brush with butter (sprinkle with garlic salt if desired). Repeat with the rest of the dough.

Thanks Judi! I’ve been working on improving my food photography skills. The truth is I probably take 50 pictures and end up with 2-3 good and usable ones.
