Naan Bread

Here's a recipe and instructions to make naan bread, a flat bread original from south and central asia that I always enjoy when I visit my local Indian restaurant.

Overview of the ingredients:

List of ingredients:
-2 1/2 cups all purpose flower
-1 tea spoon salt
-1 tea spoon sugar
-2 tea spoon yeast
-6 table spoons gluten
-1 tea spoon of dough conditioner (optional)
-5 tea spoon dough relaxer (optional)
-1 1/2 cups warm water

Combine all dry ingredients and mix.

Add sugar and yeast to water, whisk and let sit for 10min until foam is visible.

Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and knead for 7 min with a mixer or 15mi by hand.
Set the dough on a oiled pot, cover and let it raise for 1h.

Cut to size and roll into shape. Start with a dough roller and finish shaping with your hands, stretching the bread. I make six bread with this recipe.

Pre-heat oven and a baking stone to 500F and place the breads on it, spray some water on to the bread before hand.

Bake for 7min if you want really crispy breads, like below. 4min for soft breads.

Remove from oven and spread some butter while still hot.

Here's a batch left for only 4min.

Here you have it. The bread at the center was baked for 7min while the rest for only 4min.
