I never thought I could have homemade Indian Naan, instead I did! And they were goooooodddd and authentic. Almost like the one I had in India. The amazing thing is that you DO NOT NEED A TANDORI.
Can you believe it?

Find out how!

Ingredients (makes 6- 8 naan):

* 2 cups all purpose flour
* 3/4 tbsp baking powder
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp sugar
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1/2 cup warm milk
* 1/2 cup yogurt
* butter as needed
* herbs and spices


Step 1: Make the dough


In a bowl place flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Heat up 1/2 cup of milk, make it warm, not hot and add in the yogurt. Now pour the wet ingredients onto the dry one and mix well until you get a smooth and very sticky dough. Cover with a towel and let the dough sit in a warm place for about 2 hours.
After 2 hours dust your working surface and knead the dough for a few minute. Then divide the dough into smaller balls (you should get about 6-8 balls)

Now flatten each ball in an slightly elongated shape

Now if desired, sprinkle one side of the naan with your desired flavor (garlic, cumin, chopped cilantro). I just made simple butter naan. Then brush the other side with water
That is pretty burnt looking naan. Frankly, I eat a lot of Indian food, some I cook and some cooked by indian chefs in restaurants with tandoor ovens. I have never seen naan that burnt. Burnt food is rich with carcinogens, I'd be careful.
I can't access youtube, it's blocked in China. What's up?
Oh nothing very important. Just shows you how to make real naan. By the way, you can access youtube using VPN servers from US (strongvpn.com). Wasn't trying to be rude...peace :)
I know, I know dont worry. Im open to all critics. I'll check out the video :) Thanks for sharing
Hubby's made this and it's AWESOME!! I made some of them dessert-y with cinnamon & sugar sprinkled on at the end. :)
