Whole Wheat Naan Bread

Whole Wheat Naan Bread - easy and delicious.
My favorite thing to have when we go out for Indian Cuisine is some cheesey Naan Bread, so MaMa thought it would be fun to find a recipe for a whole wheat naan bread that she could make for me at home.  That she did, I love it!  MaMa likes them too, as they are very simple and easy to make.

Ingredients for Whole Wheat Naan Bread:

2 1/2 tsp (1 pkg) active dry yeast
1 1/2 c warm water
2 Tbs maple Syrup
2 tsp salt
3-4 c Joseph's Grainery Soft White Whole Wheat Pastry Flour

Directions:  In a large bowl, combine the water and yeast.  Whisk in the maple syrup and allow to sit for about 5 minutes.  Then whisk in the salt.  With a wooden spoon, gradually add the flour until it forms a dough that follows the spoon.  knead the dough in the bowl for just a few minutes.  Cover and allow to rise for 1 hour.

Over medium heat, allow a skillet to warm up while you roll out golf ball sized balls of dough on a lightly floured surface.  Roll each ball out to about 1/4 inch thickness.  Spray the skillet with cooking spray. Transfer the rolled out dough to the hot skillet.  Cook until golden brown (about 60-90 seconds), the flip over and cook the other side until it is golden as well.  Pair with your favorite curry dish or even just a bowl of tomato soup.

Thanks to Cheeky Kitchen for the inspiration to try our hand at Whole Wheat Naan Bread.
