Naan Recipe

We have been eating leftovers from our Indian food.  I have mentioned making naan in several previous posts, but I have never given my recipe.  I based my recipe off of one I found online and have loved it.  The dough is easily made from simple ingredients and the naan is easy to roll out and cook. 

1 pkg yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar, divided
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 egg, beaten
3 Tab milk
2 tsp salt

Dissolve yeast in warm water with 1 Tab of sugar for about 8 minutes, or until foamy.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Knead for 6-8 minutes.  (Or, use the dough hook of a stand mixer.)  If dough seems very dry, add warm water by Tablespoonfuls until desired consistency is reached.
Turn dough out into an oiled bowl.  Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. 
Punch down dough.  Pinch off into golf ball size pieces and place on a baking sheet.  Cover and let rise 30 minutes. 
On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece of dough into thin disk.  Heat a skillet over medium high heat.  Place dough disk on skillet and cook until it starts to form bubbles.  Flip and cook until browned on both sides.
