So, do you remember how I said I wanted to try to make my own naan? Guess what….
Now I’d like to tell you that I have a 100 good uses for naan. That I know all sorts of delicious sauce and/or traditional Indian recipes I serve alongside naan. But, in truth… I mostly just make pizza out of them.
Pizza naan is awesome. It’s like pita pizza… but, like, a little better.
The secret’s out.
And this naan was really fun (and easy) to make. It was even easier than homemade tortillas. Less rolling-pin action.
Naan, makes 8-10 servings. Recipe slightly adapted from here.
Needed: 3 3/4 cups flour, 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 cups greek yogurt.
In a bowl combine the flours, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine. Stir in the yogurt until crumbly. Lightly flour your work surface and plop the crumbly dough on to it. Use your (clean) hands to knead the dough until it is more elastic and cohesive. Cover and allow to rest for 30 minutes to an hour.
Divide the dough into 8 to 10 pieces (depending how big you like your naan) and roll out until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Heat a cast iron or non stick skillet over medium high heat, lay the naan in the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes, flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. Once you’ve cooked all the pieces lay them on a baking sheet and bake at 400 F for 8-10 minutes to finish cooking them through.
