Homemade Garlic Naan Bread

Naan bread need not be made with tandoori oven always. I made this naan bread using a normal pan/tawa with few simple ingredients.

Preparation time :10 mins
Cooking time: 2 mins for each bread  
Serves - 4
Number of breads : Makes 8 to 9 approximately

Egg - 1
Milk - 1 pint
Plain Flour - 4 cups
Garlic - 1 bulb
salt - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1/2 cup

Peel the skin of the garlic and grate using a cheese grater.

Dough Preparation:
Break the egg and mix  it well with the milk. Add the salt with the flour so that it is mixed evenly.Knead the dough by adding little by little of the milk and egg mix with the plain flour until it becomes soft. If it is sticky add a bit more of the flour and continue kneading until it becomes soft.

 Divide the dough into several portions by making small balls using the palm .
Rolling the Dough:
Do a bit of dusting and roll it using a rolling pin until all the corners are evenly flattened. If any edge gets sticky while rolling repeat the dusting process .

Step 2 :
Pull the edges of the rolled dough and make a small well. Add a teaspoon of grated garlic and roll it to a ball again

Step :3
Repeat step:1 by rolling the dough again to make the naan ready to cook.

Cooking Method:
  Heat a flat-bottomed pan for 2 minutes. Transfer the rolled dough into the pan. Add 1/2 a tsp of oil. Cook on one side   for a minute on a medium flame , turn it over and repeat the process by cooking on the other side of the Naan.

Naan bread is ready to serve. Serve it with any curry/gravy of your choice. I served it with Jalfrezi.
