Handmade Naan (Approved by My Mother-in-Law)

My Singaporean mother-in-law loves this recipe! She even took a copy back home with her!
It competes with store-bought naan!

Ingredients: 6 pieces

Bread (strong) flour
300 g
Sugar
3 tablespoons
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Plain yogurt
3 tablespoons
Dried yeast
1 teaspoon
Butter
15 g
Lukewarm water
120 ml

Steps

1. Combine bread flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Whisk well.
2. Pour lukewarm water (I warm it to 60°C), yeast and yogurt into a measuring cup. Stir well.
3. Now pour this yogurt mixture into the flour bowl and knead until dough forms. Then add butter and knead some more.
4. <First rising> Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to double in size at room temperature. If you are in a hurry, you could speed it by placing over a double broiler or in your oven.
5. <Rest time> Divide the dough into 6 portions and let rest for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200°C.
6. Roll the dough to 2 mm thin and bake in the oven for 7 minutes. Alternatively, you could cook both sides of the naan using a frying pan. Even better!

Story Behind this Recipe

The naan from the local shop is mediocre, so I always make this recipe at home.
I am still trying to make an even more delicious naan!
