Grilled Naan
(Makes 4 naans)
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 4
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour (use unbleached if possible)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup soymilk + 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp canola or other vegetable oil
  1. Mix the all-purpose flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking powder in a large bowl
  2. Add the soymilk and oil and mix with a wooden spoon or at medium speed in a stand mixer. The dough will be very sticky. Beat for about 5 minutes.
  3. Now turn it out on a floured surface and knead with oiled hands.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 balls-- oiling your hands again will help form the balls.
  5. Set them aside for 30 minutes.
  6. Roll out each ball into a round or an oval, about 7 inches in diameter.
  7. Heat a grill pan (you can also do this on an outdoor grill) until it's really hot but just short of smoking. Brush with a little oil. Place a naan on it and turn the heat down to medium.
  8. Grill until golden grill marks appear on the naan, about 2 minutes. Then flip over and grill the other side for another minute. Flip over once again at an angle so you get a nice grill pattern on the naan. (Don't overdo the grilling because the naan does harden up if it cooks too long). Brush some olive oil on both sides of the naan, if desired.
