Nan bread with garlic - really good

Nan bread with garlic is an almost obligatory accompaniment to Indian, Iranian, Afghan or Pakistani food. This recipe makes 8 wonderful naan breads with a lovely taste of garlic and the dough is superb to work with.

600 g mel

1 ts salt

2 teaspoons sugar

2 dl milk

1/2 packet yeast

3 dl yoghurt

4 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp onion seeds (can be omitted)

4 cloves garlic

Knead everything, except the garlic, well, adding more flour if necessary.

Let the dough rise for 1 hour, or more, before dividing the dough into 8 equal parts, shape them into buns and let them rise for 1 hour under a cloth.

Press the buns out to an oval shape, preferably quite thin. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and sprinkle with chopped garlic. Press the garlic into the dough a little and let them rise for another 30 minutes.

Set the oven to full heat, for me it's 300 degrees and let the naan breads bake a little high up in the oven for 6 - 8 minutes. They should get a little colour, but make sure they don't burn, because this goes quickly.

When they are done, grease them with ghee or butter and serve.

A little tip is to fry some of the bread halfway through and put them in the freezer. When you are going to use them, you take them out of the freezer, they thaw quickly, and finish frying them, before spreading them with ghee (or butter).
