Naan

This Indian flat bread is one of my favorites. We had it with some korma and rice.

2 TBS. active dry yeast (or a packet)
1 c. warm water
1 egg, beaten
1/4 c. sugar
1 c. milk
2 tsp. salt
4.5 cups all purpose flour
Butter/Vegetable Oil
2 tsp. minced garlic (optional) - I do some plain, some garlic

Mix yeast and warm water, let it sit for 10 minutes, or until it becomes frothy. Add egg, sugar, milk and salt. Slowly mix in flour (more or less) until you get a soft dough - Knead on lightly floured surface for 6-8 minutes. Place in well oiled bowl. Cover with a warm, damp cloth until the dough doubles in size (about 1 hour). After dough has risen, punch down and pull off small handfuls of dough and place on greased tray or cookie sheet, add garlic if desired. Cover tray with towel. Let handfuls rise again until double in size (about 30 min.).
Heat grill on med-high heat. Press out balls of dough until you have a flat piece of dough. Spray grill, place dough and let it cook for 1-2 min., meanwhile, butter uncooked side of dough, and flip to cook other side for another 1-2 minutes.

About 10 servings.
