I doubled the recipe and made the all-purpose batter and a whole wheat batter, then kneaded together for a marblized effect. Courtesy of Shawn Sidey and Celebrity Kitchens. Can be tossed on the grill for a quick heating and to mark up. NOTE: When mixing dry and wet, not ALL of the flour will incorporate - don't worry
- 1 1⁄2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (You can sub whole wheat or do half and half)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
- 2 tablespoons plain nonfat yogurt
- Preheat oven to 350*F.
- Sift dry ingredients into bowl.
- Mix in all yogurt.
- Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic (10 minutes).
- Form into ball and return to bowl; cover with plastic.
- Let rest 2 hours (dough won't rise).
- Turn dough onto floured surface and divide into 4.
- form each into a ball.
- roll into an 8-inch round.
- bake 8-10 minutes, just browning tops.
- NOTE: dough MAY rise while baking, but it will fall flat when cooled.
I wanted to try a naan recipe other than my own for a change, so I decided to try this one, since it was quite different. This Naan was quite flat..and wasnt soft and fluffy like ordinary naan. Rolling this into four 8-inch rounds made them QUITE thin, and after baking they remained pretty thin and semi-chewy, instead of soft. This really was nothing like any naan Ive had.. I know that I have no problems with my baking powder, as I made banana bread in the same day...with no problems. :-( Im sorry this just really didnt work out too well for me.
This is a good naan recipe for people who can't eat yeast. I enjoyed it and will probably make it again.
i did not make this so i am not going to bust on it or commend it. however i noticed a slite problem. i think that this would make a wonderful fat free flour tortilla because it is alot like my flour tortilla recipe. however, naan requires yeast to get the fluffy nooks and crannies and that is basically the whole point of naan. im sure that this is a good, or usefull recipe however im not sure about how it is for a naan recipe. try letting it rest then rolling it out very thin and instead of baking you throw it on a flat bottomed griddle or pan (cast iron) to make chalupa-style flour tortillas.
