- Self rising flour - 3 cups
- 2 tsp Rapid rising yeast (fleischmann's yeast)
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp oil
- Water 1/2 to 3/4 cup
Heat 1/2 cup water in microwave for 40 secs. Add yeast to the water and stir it. Now, sift the flour, salt and sugar into a bowl, add the yeast-water and oil to it. Take a spatula to make it into a soft ball. If it is too sticky add more flour. If the yeast-water is not enough add milk or yogurt or even water as needed. Take few drops of oil and spread it gently over the dough. Wet a paper napkin and spread it over the bowl. Let it sit for few hours. Wait upto four hours for the dough to double up in size.
Take a liberal pinch of dough and flour it to prevent it from sticking to rolling pin. Roll it like how you do roti. Now begin heating your tava and add cook it like roti. Oil is not needed. You may butter it after taking it from Tava.
This is lot easier to make than rotis. I may venture out to stuffing and baking like puffs or even adding turmeric, onion or garlic or mint to make masaala Naan on tava.
