If you only learn one quick, simple recipe…cooking for the people you love is often an overlooked and very potent medicine <3
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
optional: toasted cumin seeds (lightly roasted in a dry pan until aromatic)
2 tsp oil (I used ghee)
1/2 cup* milk (or more as needed)
ghee + herbs for seasoning
Combine all dry ingredients, and whisk together.
Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and add the oil and milk. Mix everything together until it forms a ball. Turn out on the counter and knead until very smooth and elastic — at least 5 minutes — adding more flour as necessary.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. Divide into 8-10 equal pieces.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Roll one piece of dough until very thin (less than 1/8″). If the skillet isn’t non-stick, melt some butter before each piece. One at a time, cook the naan for about 90 seconds, or until parts are blackening, on each side. When they are done, you can brush them with ghee and add seasonings (cilantro, garlic, etc.),
