Better Naan

Sometimes, you have to chuck the recipes and go out on your own. =) This is my most recent attempt at homemade naan, sans tandoor oven of course. I used my George Foreman grill and it came out nice and chewy. So far this is my favorite.


1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt1 tsp sugar
about 4 cups flour (enough to get a good, soft dough)
3 Tbsp soy or rice milk, plain
1 cup vegan yogurt
1/2 tsp instant yeast
3 Tbsp melted margarine
2 tsp Ener-G Egg Replacer + 1/4 cup water, beaten

Combine dry ingredients (less @ 1/2 cup flour) in large bowl, set aside.

Combine soy/rice milk, yogurt and butter. Heat in microwave until warm (@ 45-60 sec). Add yeast and Egg Replacer, mix.

Add to dry ingredients. Mix. Add additional flour if needed to form soft dough. Knead 15 minutes until dough is elastic. If dough is sticky, add more flour.

Place in greased bowl and cover with damp tea towel or lid, allow to double in size (depending on temp, could be 1-3 hrs).

Preheat George Foreman grill.

Divide dough into 8 sections and roll into balls. Flatten either by hand (for a more rustic look) or with a rolling pin. Cook on grill until lightly browned.

Can be brushed lightly with melted margarine, but these are great plain!
