Prep Time: 15 minutes

Wait Time: 1 Hour

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

3 cups of all-purpose flour

1 cup of warm water

1 cup of plain full fat yogurt

1 package of yeast

1 teaspoon of sugar

2 teaspoons of salt

1 stick of butter

3 cloves of garlic, minced

3 stems of fresh rosemary, with the leaves picked of the stem and minced. Or, 2 teaspoons dried rosemary

Instructions:

  • In a small bowl, add the warm water, the sugar, and the yeast and stir. Let it sit so the yeast can settle, until you see the top covered with bubbles from the yeast. Once it has set, add a tablespoon of olive oil to it
  • In the bowl of a bread mixer, add the flour and the salt and mix them
  • Turn the machine on a medium setting and slowly add the yeast mixture to the flour. Continue on a medium setting until all the water has been added. Then add the yogurt
  • Increase the speed to a high setting and let it spin until a dough ball forms
  • Remove the bowl and cover and let sit for an hour until it rises
  • Once the dough has risen, cut and roll it into baseball sized pieces
  • Before you flatten the dough pieces, prepare the butter mixture.
  • In a small saucepan, add the butter and melt on a medium heat. Add the garlic and rosemary and let simmer for a minute or two. Shut the heat off and let the garlic and rosemary immerse in the butter. Continue on prepping the naan
  • Coat a flat surface that you will be rolling the dough out on with flour
  • Using a rolling pin, flatten and roll out each piece of dough until thin. Dust the rolled out dough with some corn meal
  • Coat both sides of the naan with the butter
  • Heat a frying pan over a medium flame and add the naan. The top side that is not cooking will begin to bubble and rise. You can brush more butter on this side as the other is cooking for more flavor. Check the cooking side and flip over once it has begun to char and crisp. Cook the other side until it chars and crisps as well. Once the naan has cooked on both sides, you can coat with more butter
  • Enjoy!
