Title: Lacto: naan
Yield: 9 Servings
3 3/4 c Unbleached,all-purpose flour
1 ts Baking powder
1/4 ts Salt
1 3/4 c Plain yogurt
Soft unsalted butter
Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Slowly add as
much yogurt as you need to gather the flour together and make a soft,
resilient dough. Knead for about 10 minutes and form a ball [the
dough, not you. -S ] Put the ball in a bowl and cover the bowl with a
damp dishcloth. Set aside in a warm place for 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Knead
the dough again and divide into nine equal parts. Keep them covered.
Heat a cast-ironed skillet or griddle over a lowish flame. Preheat
the broiler. Take one of the parts of dough and make a ball out of
it. Flatten it and then roll it out on a lightly floured surface
until you have a round that is about 1/8 inch thick. When the skillet
is very hot, pick up the naan and slap it onto the heated surface.
Let it cook slowly for about 4 to 5 minutes. It will either puff up
completely or partially. Now put the whole skillet under the broiler
for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until the puffing-up process completes
itself and there are a few reddish spots on the naan. Remove the naan
with a spatula and brush with butter if you like. Make all of the
naans this way, keeping them stacked and covered with a clean
dishcloth. Serve hot. If you wish to have the naans later, wrap them
in a plastic bag when they have cooled. Before you eat, wrap as many
as you need in aluminum foil and heat in a 400 degree oven for 15
