My new favorite food.

2/3 c warm milk or water
2c all purpose flour
2 tsp onion seeds (optional) You could also add some garlic powder
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
4 T clarified butter
2 T plain yogurt

Whisk warm milk with yeast and sugar. Cover and let sit for about 10 minutes. Sift flour and salt three times into a large bowl. Add yeast mixture, half of the clarified butter (ghee) and the yogurt. Mix into a soft dough the knead on a floured surface for about 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a greased bowl cover and let rise for 1 1/2 hours. Punch down dough and kneed another 5 minutes divide into six balls and then roll out into 8 inch rounds. Cook in a hot pan brushed with ghee on top of the stove. Naan is ready to flip when it's puffed up, about 2 minutes on each side.

*To make clarified butter. Melt a stick in the microwave and let it sit and cool. When it's all cooled off there will be a top layer and a bottom layer. Skim off the top layer, this is the clarified butter. The bottom you can still use for toast and cooking.

Awesome! I love naan. I'll have to try this out.

Did Steve have some for lunch? I don't sit by him anymore so I don't know these things.
