Things like bread once you made it at home, you will feel the store bought ones taste so lame. Naan bread tastes best when it’s fresh, soft and hot. You might have a bread machine at home that you bought a couple yearsÂ ago,Â and nowÂ that poor thing is collecting dust in your garage. Now it’s time to getÂ your machine out.Â ItÂ can do much more work than you think. Try to make thisÂ Naan with your bread machine andÂ I am sure you willÂ make it over and overÂ again.
Naan Bread – Bread Machine Method
For the dough:
1 2/3 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
1. Put the milk and egg in the bread machine.
2. Mix flour, sugar and salt together and then put them on top ofÂ the milk.
3. Add the yeast on top the flour.
4. Use the “dough” function of your bread machineÂ to make the dough.
5. Turn out the dough on a lightly floured working surface and divide it into 5 equal portions. Form each one into balls.
6. Heat a skillet over medium heat until hot, and grease lightly.
7. Flatten the dough a little bit just so you can sprinkle some salt and mined garlic on it. Use a rolling pin to press the minced garlic into the surface of the dough and also to roll it out into a very thin teardrop shape.
8.Â When the pan starts smoking, put on the naan. Turn down the heat to medium. Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute each side until it’s lightly browned. Continue with remaining dough.
9. Serve hot.
