Naan bread

I must have a curse upon me. I thought, in my innocence, that it was spring when I looked at the thermometer this morning. I could have been right because it showed 5 degrees and therefore I took my spring jacket. Maybe it's 5 degrees outside still but it is raining and blowing so my nice spring jacket, unfortunately, won't help much on the way home from work.

Naan bread is something I have wanted to try a long time but I've been waiting for an Indian friend of Johan to send his wife's recipe, I have not got it so it had to do with a recipe I found on google. They were certainly good, but I missed this toughness that I think they usually have when eating at an Indian restaurant. Might be because I do not have access to such a type of oven they usually use.

Naan bread

200 g milk
420 g of wheat flour
1 egg
2 tablespoons cooking oil
100 g tyoghurt
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
½ tsp baking powder
2 tsp dry yeast

Heat the milk until it is lukewarm. Mix the spices, yeast, eggs and flour. Then add the yogurt and the hot milk. Let the dough prove under a cloth for at least 2 hours. Shape into flat cakes and let prove another 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet. Fry in skillet about 2 minutes on each side (or turn the oven on the highest heat and cook for about 3 minutes)
