Roti Naan

Roti Naan

1 packet yeast (11 g)
1 c lukewarm water
2 tbs sugar

4 1/2 c flour
1tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

2 tbs palm oil/olive oil/melted butter
1o tbs natural yogurt (I used nestle's 135g)

First of all you need to activate the yeast!
1. Mix yeast, water and sugar together and stir until combine. Leave for about 15 minutes
2. You know it's done when it looks like this. If it doesn't, make another one. Make sure the water is lukewarm and not hot. Test by putting some on the back of your hand palm (kura-kura tangan)

Secondly, mixed all the dry ingredients in a bowl. As you can see below, make a hole in the centre and put in all the wet ingredient including the yeast. Knead in until it doesn't stick. Put in more flour if it sticks. Then follow the steps in the picture:

Punch the dough and knead it again. You will get a slightly shinier dough at this point.

Then you want to make small balls about 70 g each out of the dough. You will get about 14 balls.

Using rolling pin, roll it according to how do you want your Naan to be. I prefer it to be thin so I rolled it thinly but my lil brother and lil sister like it thicker so I rolled some very thinly and some slightly thick. (Put some flour on the table and rolling pin before rolling to avoid sticking)

Lastly, preheat the pan, and put the rolled dough on. Air bubbles will form, when this happen, flip the Naan. You know it's done when the whole dough had turned into bread-like texture. If you're still not sure, tear it and if it is still dough-like, continue cooking.

The Naan is absolutely divine. The texture is very soft and you can vary it by putting grated garlic or sliced cheddar cheese in between. I ate mine with Tandoori Chicken!I will post the recipe soon!Happy cooking! :)
