Butter Naan

Naan is a very common flat bread in India.But I never tried it out at home ,every time there were some obstacles to get over.Finally yesterday I accomplished the preparation of butter naan.To be frank,the shape didn't come out as the naan particular although the bread was soft an fluffy.My husband's compliment was never bother about the shapes,the taste matters.I was surprised to hear that comment.I served it with the butter chicken.I had thought of posting it together but both the recipes are too long and so separated the posts.Do try this heavenly combo a try & enjoy !!!

Butter naan with butter chicken

All purpose flour 2 cups
yeast 2tsp
yogurt 1/3 cup
milk 1/3 cup
leuk warm water 1/3 cup
egg 1(optional)
sugar a pinch
oil 4tsp
butter 2tsp

Mix the yeast with the leuk warm water and sugar,keep aside for 10 minutes(till froth appears)

Take the flour in a bowl ,add the salt,beaten egg,oil yogurt and the yeast mix.

Prepare a smooth ,sticky dough .Cover it with  a clean damp cloth or a plastic wrap.

Keep the dough for 6 hours.

You will notice the dough has doubled in size.

Pre heat the oven to 500degrees F or the broil temp.

Make 5 equal sized balls of the dough.

Roll with a roling pin and flatten to 1/4'' thick.
