This fluffy, garlicky naan is the perfect side for Indian dishes or a great snack on its own. Brushed with oil and sprinkled with chopped parsley, these little loaves look fancy but are a breeze to prepare. See for yourself!
1. In a small bowl, add the warm water and dissolve the sugar. Then add the active dry yeast and stir. Let rest for 10 minutes until the yeast has foamed up.
2. In a large bowl, add the flour and salt. Make a well in the middle and add the yogurt, yeast mixture and 1 tbsp olive oil. (If the dough is too dry and crumbly, add little splashes of water until it comes together.) Knead the dough until it becomes smooth (about 10 minutes). Cover the dough with a towel and let it rise for an hour, until it has doubled in size.
3. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece into an oval shape.
4. Heat up a skillet and grease it with olive oil. Cook the bread on the hot skillet until bubbles start to rise and the cooking side develops brown spots. Flip and cook the side.
5. In another small skillet, saute the minced garlic in the 3 tbsp olive oil for 30 seconds to a minute. Brush the naan with the garlic oil and sprinkle with parsley to garnish.
6. Serve warm.
