N is for No Nonsense Naan Bread


Ingredients:
2 tablespoons warm water
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 package active dry yeast
¼ cup milk
¼  cup plain yogurt, room temperature
4 tablespoons melted butter
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup milk

Directions:
Place milk in a small bowl and microwave for 25 seconds.  Add sugar and yeast, stir until dissolved.  Set aside for 5-10 minutes until it foams.
In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.  Combine milk mixture, yogurt and melted butter. Slowly combine wet and dry ingredients together. If needed, slowly and carefully add additional milk to the mixture if needed to make it leave the sides of the bowl.

Knead dough for 6 to 8 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth and let stand in a warm place to rise for about 4 hours or until it has doubled in volume.

Place a pizza pan or cookie sheet in the oven and preheat to 550 degrees. 
Punch the dough down and knead briefly. Divide into six pieces and shape them into balls. Place them on an oiled plate and cover with lightly oiled plastic wrap. Let balls rest for 5 to 10  minutes. Roll out and stretch each ball until it is about 10 inches long and 5 inches wide.

Remove the pizza pan or cookie sheet from the oven, place dough on pan or sheet and place in oven to bake for 4-5 minutes until it is puffed and has brown spots.  Flip the bread and let it bake for another 1-2 minutes, then pull from the oven and set aside to cool. Place a new piece of rolled out dough on the pan or sheet and repeat the process.  Wrap finished bread in a towel while baking the remaining dough.  4-6 servings.
