This was my first attempt at making this incredible indian flatbread. I really love naan bread dipped in korma sauce and even if the local takeaway restaurant serves a good one , i wanted to try it myself . The result was really good and it makes me want to make another batch soon.
Makes 6 breads:
*150 ml of milk
*150 ml of plain natural yogurt
*2 tsp of sugar
*2 tsp of yeast
*450 grs of flour

2.In a large bowl sift in the dry ingredients , make a well in the middle and add the yeast mixture along with the remaining ingredients except garlic and coriander
3.Mix until a ball of dough has formed and then knead it on a floured surface for 10 minutes.
4. Drizzle some oil in a clean bowl and place the dough in it, cover with cling film and let it rise for an hour.
