Making Naan Bread

For our Super Saturday, we decided to make Naan Bread to go with our
"Curried Chicken, Peppers & Peas en Papillote"

Perfect Naan Bread that tastes like it is from an Indian Restaurant is very simple and easy to make. This is a great recipe to add to your Food Storage list because you can use powdered milk in this recipe,  I just add the powdered milk to warm water and not have to worry about heating the milk.
  • 3 cups warm milk
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 8-9 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 stick soft butter
  •  garlic powder (optional)
  1. add yeast and sugar to warm milk, let stand 3-5 minutes
  2. add salt and 3½ cups flour to milk mixture and mix in mixer with dough hook for 3-5 minutes or about 8-10 minutes if mixing by hand, Sprinkle additional flour as needed to keep dough from sticking to the sides. Do not exceed 4¼ cups.
     3. Let rise for 2 hours or until it doubles in size

    4. Punch dough down and divide into 12 equal pieces and let rest for 30 minutes
    5. While you dough balls are resting put your stone(s) in oven and preheat oven to 500 degrees. Next roll out dough balls to desired thickness (about the size of a small tortilla)
    6.  Cook rolled out dough on stone for 2-4 minutes. Stack cooked Naan on top of each other and brush each side with butter.
    (If you desire you can add  garlic powder and a couple shakes of salt to your melted butter)
