A delicious, moist Indian bread recipe that was easy! No clay oven required. 🙂 Makes about 6 naans 4″ x 10″ or so.
- 1/2 cup warm water (not hot!)
- 1 Tbsp yeast
- 2 tsp sugar of choice
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp salt
- heaping 1/3 cup mashed avocado (about 2/3 – 1 avocado)
- 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast, optional
- 2 – 3 Tbsp more whole wheat pastry flour
- optional seeds for topping – e.g. sesame
In a medium bowl, combine warm water, yeast and sugar. Allow to sit about 5 minutes and become frothy.
Add in flour, onion powder, baking powder, salt and avocado. Knead for a couple of minutes. Place back into the bowl and cover with a towel or plastic wrap. Allow to rise for about 1 1/2 hours.
Place some additional flour on your kneading surface. Knead in the nutritional yeast if you use it. By hand, form into ovals, about 4″ x 10″ or so. Sprinkle with seeds if you wish, and lightly push them a bit so they stick.
Heat a griddle on medium heat. Place one or two naans on the griddle at a time and cook for a couple minutes per side until browned a bit. Continue with the rest of the naans. Serve immediately!
