1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar
3 TBS milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp salt
4 1/2 cups bread flour (might not need all of this)
1/4 cup butter, melted
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes, until foamy. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough (about 4 cups). Knead for 6 to 8 minutes on a lightly floured surface, or until smooth. Place dough in a oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth. Set aside to rise. Let it rise 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in volume.
Punch down dough. Pinch off small handfuls of dough about the size of golf balls. Roll into balls and place on a tray. Cover with a towel, and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes
During the second rising, preheat grill to high heat.
Once the second rise is complete roll one ball of dough out into a thin circle. Lightly oil grill. Place dough on grill, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until puffy and browned. Brush uncooked side with butter, and turn over. Brush cooked side with butter, and cook until browned, another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from grill, and continue the process until all the naan has been prepared.
Eat with hummus!! SOOO GOOD
