Naan!!!!!!!!!!

Here i am with very famous Indian Flat Bread!



Ingredients:
2 cup All purpose flour + 1/2 cup more
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tea spoon Dry Active Yeast
2 tbs Yogurt
1-2 tbs oil( any oil will work)

1/4+ 1/2 cup water(room temperature)

Yeast Mixture: take 1/4 cup of water in a bowl add 1 tsp sugar to it.Give it a stir so that sugar get dissolve then add 1 tsp yeast and give it a light stir(just once).leave it for 15-20 min.

In a big Bowl take 2 cup of flour. Add 2 tbs yogurt and 1 tsp salt and mix it.Then add yeast mixture and mix.
Then add 1/2 cup of water little by little.Dough will be lil sticky at this point then add another 1/2 cup of flour to make a smooth dough.

Keep in a bowl and add 2 tbs oil and knead it a lil bit then covered and keep it in warm place for at least 2 hr(I warm the oven for 2-3 min and then switch it off and keep the dough there ).

After giving the dough rest, take a golf ball size dough and roll it over(try to give it a triangle shape). Sprinkle some black onion seeds and give some spots of water over it( water spot will give brown spots to Naan ).

Final Stage:Making the Naan:Broil the oven on high.

You can make Naan on any Oven Tray or Pizza Stone

Oven Tray:Keep the Naan on top rack for 1 min(util you see the brown spot) and then turn and keep for 30 sec or so. And Serve :)

Pizza stone:I read on one site that if we make Naan on Pizza Stone, we dont need to flip it.Well i too tried on Pizza Stone and that true upto an extent.For that you need to make pizza stone really hot and as soon as you put Naan over it, it get cooked from down(will not give you brown spot) but will not be raw in taste so you dont need to flip it and when you dont flip it you will let it cook from one side which will make Naan more soft but remember pizza stone has to be really hot.

Serve with any curry of your choice:)

I am glad you like my Blog.
I am not sure about the Oven mode you mention but you need to bake in the mode in which you make your cake or cookies.You need to keep it in high...I hope this help!!!
