Bread Flour from Amazon

Indian Naan
Serving Size: 4


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water -- plus
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons clarified butter
Additional clarified butter -- for dipping

Place yeast, flour, salt, water, and clarified butter in bread machine pan
in the order recommended by the machine's manufacturer. Select dough

At the end of the first kneading, remove the dough from the machine.
Allow to rest for ten minutes.

Place a 13- by 9-inch baking pan on the bottom of the oven. Preheat oven
to 500 degrees.

On a lightly floured work surface, cut dough into four equal parts. With
a lightly floured rolling pin, roll each piece to a 1/4-inch thick
free-form circle. Cover with a clean kitchen cloth, and let rest 20

Lightly sprinkle tops with flour, and roll out as thin as possible. Place
one naan face down on preheated baking pan. Bake 60 seconds. Remove from
oven. It will still be white, although it may have a couple brown spots
like a flour tortilla. Place on a large plate, and cover with a clean
kitchen cloth to keep warm.

Continue baking remaining naan. Eat warm, dipped in or drizzled with
clarified butter.

This recipe yields 4 naan.

Comments: Naan, a white flour flat bread from India, is traditionally
made in a brick and clay tandoor oven. Wrap seasoned grilled meats,
seafood, or vegetables with pieces of naan. Naan should be served
immediately after preparing.
