Garlic Naan


1 Package Active Dry Yeast (.25 Ounce)

1 Cup Warm Water

¼ Cup White Sugar

3 Tablespoons Milk

1 Beaten Egg

2 Teaspoons Salt

4 ½ Cups Bread Flour

4 Teaspoons Minced Garlic

3 Teaspoons Chopped Coriander

¼ Cup Melted Butter

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water (NOT hot water).  Let stand about 10 minutes – until frothy.  Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt and enough flour to make soft dough.  Knead for 6 minutes on a lightly floured surface until smooth.  Place dough in a well oiled bowl and cover with a damp cloth.  Set aside in a warm place to let rise.  Let rise for 1 hour or until dough has doubled in volume.  Punch the dough and knead in garlic and chopped coriander.  Pinch off small handfuls of dough that are about the size of golf balls.  Roll into balls and place onto a tray.  Cover with a towel and allow rising again until doubled in size.  This should take about ½ hour.  During the second rising, preheat grill to a high heat.  Lightly oil the grill and roll one ball of dough into a thin circle.  Place dough on the grill and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until puffy and lightly browned.  Brush uncooked side with butter and turn over.  Brush cooked side with butter and cook until browned for another 2 to 4 minutes.  Remove from grill and continue the process until all of the naan has been prepared.  If you don’t have a grill you may cook in the oven on a pizza stone.  Makes 14 garlic naan
