Wheat Naan

Indian flat bread made from wheat flour

·  Wheat flour– 2 cups
·   Rapid rise yeast – 1tsp
·   Warm water – ½ cup
·   Sugar – 1tsp
·   Salt – 1tsp
·   Yogurt / curd – 2 tbsp
·   Oil – 1tblsp
·   Extra flour for dusting and rolling

  • Add yeast and sugar to warm water, mix well, cover and keep it in a warm place for 10 – 15 minutes
  • Mix wheat flour, salt and oil without lumps in a large bowl
  • Meanwhile, the yeast and water mixture will become foamy
  • Add the foamy mixture to the flour
  • Mix well with 2 tbsp of yogurt / curd and knead it into a soft dough (Do not add anymore water, if needed add yogurt / curd)
  • Add 2 tsp of oil over the dough
  • Cover the dough and keep it in warm place for 1 hour
  • If you live in a colder place, you can pre-heat the conventional oven for 10 minutes and turn it off and keep the dough inside 

  • Once the dough has risen, add a little oil to the dough and punch it well
  • Make medium sized balls and roll them in a floured surface into a round chapatti like shape and then stretch from one side to form an oval shaped Naan
  • Heat the tava and place the rolled Naan in it
  • Cook in medium flame on both sides until you get nice brown spots
  • Apply butter and serve with a suitable side dish
