Naan Bread



1 (10g) package active dry yeast

2 cups warm water

1/4 cup white sugar

3 tablespoons milk

1 egg, beaten

2 teaspoons salt

4 1/2 cups bread flour

2 (good sized) cloves of garlic (optional)

1 tbs olive oil

2 tsp sesame seeds


In a separate bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes, until frothy.

In a large bowl beat one egg then add the sugar, milk and salt.

After that add the flour, and the yeast and mix well with a fork.

Lay the mixture on a floured surface and knead it well.

Put the dough into a clean bowl and rub over with the olive oil, then cover with a clean tea towel and allow to prove (rise) for about half an hour.

Once the dough has risen, take it out of the bowl add the crushed garlic, sesame seeds and knead again for a few minutes.  Cut into approximately 6 pieces and roll out with a rolling pin to about half a cm thick.

Heat a large flat frying pan, add olive oil (alternatively butter can be used) and fry over a medium heat until golden then turn and repeat.

You will need to add more oil as necessary.
