Lovin' the Na'an

Every week we enjoy a little Indian/Nepalese food  and it's always delish.

Part of this amazingness is the glory of Na'an bread :)

So of course I have to share the recipe with ya'll!

The cast of characters:

1 tsp. Yeast
3 Tablespoons warm water
1 tsp honey
( put all of this together and let it sit for 5 min)

then add in:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 Tablespoon oil
2 Tablespoons yogurt
2 Tablespoons milk

Mix it all together and then knead the dough right in the bowl for a good 5-6 minutes.

You'll get this lovely little lump of love.

Cover with a tea towel and let it sit for 10-15 minutes

Separate the larger ball into 4 mini ones

On a lightly floured area either roll or use your hands to make flat, round (or in my case whatever shape it decides to take)  pancake shaped pieces of bread.

I like to make my na'an of the garlic variety. If you want too just add some minced garlic to olive oil and spread out on the mini loaves. If you don't want garlic then you are good to go and just pop 'em in the oven!

Bake at 375 until they get slightly golden brown on the top.

Then serve your amazing na'an with whatever delicious indian food your heart desires.

For us it was some fantastic chickpea, pepper, and onion tikka masala and it... was... out of this world :)
