Naan

Naan

* 2 cups flour
* 1/2 teaspoons salt
* 1 and 1/4 teaspoons yeast
* 2 tablespoons melted butter
* 3/4 cup plain yogurt
* 1 teaspoon water (more as needed)
* Melted butter

Combine ingredients in a large bowl (by hand or with mixer w/dough hook)Mix until soft ball of dough forms. Kneed for 10 minutes. Transfer to oiled bowl, turning once to coat. Cover and let rise for 1 and 1/2 hours.

Punch down and divide into four balls (this is where I like to knead in some cumin for extra flavor but that’s optional). Roll into balls, cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Place a baking sheet (turned upside down - very important) into an oven and heat to 475F. Roll out balls into ovals 1/4 inch thick. Brush tops with melted butter. Place onto sheet and bake until puffy and light golden, 6 to 7 minutes. Drizzle with more melted butter.
