What you need

Ingredients

½ tsp dry active Yeast
½ tsp granulated Sugar
3 ½ cups all-purpose Flour (plus additional for rolling)
1 tsp Salt
2 tbsp melted Ghee
garlic powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, sea salt
1 1/2 cups Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk (from Mauritius)

How to prepare

Instructions

1 Preheat oven and heat the evaporated milk

Heat ½ cup evaporated milk in microwave or on stovetop to 35 degree Celsius.

2 Add flour to the evaporated milk

Combine flour and salt in large mixer bowl. Add yeast mixture and remaining 1 cup of evaporated milk. Mix together on low speed using a dough hook for about 5 mins or until a soft, smooth dough is formed. (Alternatively, you can knead by hand for about 10 minutes).

3 Divide the dough

Divide dough into 12 pieces. Lightly flour work surface and rolling pin; roll out each piece into 7- to 8-inch ovals.

4 Cook the naan

Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until smoking hot. Brush one side of one dough oval with melted ghee; sprinkle with any optional seasonings. Stretch dough out a little and place oiled-side-down on hot skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes or until large bubbles form on top. Flip with a spatula; cook for 1 to 2 mins or until toasted spots appear on bottom and naan puffs up a bit. Place on large plate. Repeat with remaining dough, ghee and seasonings.
